All of the short fat cases are problematic as far as feeding, and the rails are difficult to
What I recommend on and short fat case is to find a center feed mag and have it installed.
the center feed mags hold the round instead of the rails on the action and can be adjusted to
feed perfectly buy simply bending the top of the mag in or out.
The other plus to the center feed, is less chance of bullet tip damage because it feeds straight
into the chamber.
All of my WSMs and WSSMs have center feed mags and I have no issues with feeding.
