Do they make different guts or is there a simple fix?
The staggered feed mags can cause this and sometimes you have to open the action rails
Another way to fix this condition is to use a center feed mag box and a flat top follower.(The
round is already lined up with the chamber)this is also easier on the bullet.(It doesent get
skinned up while chambering).
This condition can occur even with standard cases if the rails are to tight.
