The best solution for feeding short magnums in any action that I have found, is to use a center feed
mag box so you can tune the box and not rely on the rails in the action.
A regular Staggered magazine can be made to work with time and patience but the center feed
can/will work great.
Push feed actions work best when single loading and with rebated rims. The Mauser can be made to push feed by a competent Gun Smith.
