Savage hog hunter .308 feeding issues
Ok, picked up the rifle today and brought her home and did function tests... when it got to checking the feeding Imput 2 snap caps in the mag, I didn't get my bolt but 2mm's forward before the top round ejected completely out...popped straight up and out. I loaded the next round and it loaded perfect. I then re-did this test two more times to confirm, same thing happened. Then I put 4 snap caps in the mag. I loaded the rifle... rounds 1 and 2 fed fine, 3 popped out and 4 fed fine also. I repeated this test a couple more times to confirm. I then repeated test with live ammunition and the same thing happened the next to bottom round popped up almost as soon as the bolt touched it. Going back to the snap caps, I inserted two into the mag and using my finger and fingernail I pushed the cap forward and it fed fine, I put it back and this time used a small pocketknife blade to get completely behind the round and tried this. Again the round popped out almost immediately.
The only things that comes to my mind is that maybe the feed lips on the mag are little wide. Anybody else have any thoughts or suggestions otherwise?
