Re: Maybe feeding issue with HS precion clip?
Here's the deal with H/S floor metals.
They are height sensitive. A guy has to make sure you get it close enough to the action so that the geometry between the feed lips and the ramp are appropriate. The general rule is get them as close as you can without the lips contacting the bolt or the floor mortises in the action.
While this sounds great and all it can really be a pain in the arse because if a smith cares anything about presentation he's going to quickly discover that in most cases the floor metal gets buried in the stock; ruining anything that is even remotely supposed to resemble a custom rifle.
From what you've described, I would speculate to say that your rifle will work fine. If it starts transfering lots of brass onto the feed lips or the ramp perhaps consider either doing a little fluff and buff or reducing the "angle of attack" by getting the floor metal a little closer to the action. Just don't go too far cause you'll have a real mess on your hands then. Measure twice, cut once. . .
