Savage 110 magazine feed Problem

I shoot a Savage 110 in 300 Winchester. For best accuracy my OAL with a 168 Amax is 3.5 inches. My loaded rounds would not work in the magazine. So I purchase a Savage 300 Ultra Mag magazine and follower from Midway USA. I have installed the box and the gun does not feed rounds into the chamber worth a hoot. The magazine feed lips are to short and the round jumps up out of the box. The Savage 110 is push feed. Has anyone worked through this problem before? I thought about a CRF bolt head, but then I have another problem with no extrator! I only want one problem at a time. I am still shooting one round at a time. I will listen to any suggestions. Will another brand of magazine box fit?

You possibly may have to feed them one at a time if your seating them past the mag length.
Keep me posted, I just picked up a 300 Win 110.
I'd Rather Make a Slow Hit Than a Fast Miss!

If you've installed the RUM box then making the cut for the standing ejector shouldn't be a problem for you if going CRF will fix the problem. I would just extend the feed lips on the mag box it that would work.
