    Sounds like the action is in a bind. Does the stock have a blind magazine or detachable floor plate? Hard to close sounds almost like the front scope base screw is too long and protruding down inside the action. Only thing I can figure on the feeding is the reciever and box magazine are fitting together for some reason. Do these conditions occur with the original stock? JohnnyK.

    Front stock bolt may be too long. Loosen bolts and see if it frees everything up. If so, file stock bolt to fit.

    I'll give it a try thank you

    this problem only occurs when there is a cartridge in the chamber
    I tried factory ammo out of 3 different boxes

    Check the length of your front screw.

    I have reassembled everything the feeding problem is solved
    all the screws are good and I have talked to another guy who has the same rifle
    he says his is tight too
    I shot it again today and it seems to have loosened up a bit
    thanks
