This common with lots of rifles when the mag box is stuffed full.
Lots of the Mod 70 match rifles had this problem and the mag box/well had to be extended
just a little.
The solution is to load 3+1 and with the spring tension being less it should fix the problem.
I like to do this on all of my hunting rifles so that when the hunt is over I can remove the
chambered round and place it in the mag box for safety. (Hold it down with your fingers
and allow the bolt to override the round). this way it is only a bolt throw away.
