I bought the above, a couple of weeks ago, and cannot get the rifle to feed from the DMB. Can I spread the lips on the magazine to allow the cartridge to raise up a touch in the hopes that it will engage? Any caveats to doing this?

Also, is it the bottom of the bolt face that catches the cartridge or is something missing? It all appears to be there according to the parts page.

A wonderment.

Yes, I've fired the rifle with no rounds in the magazine and with the magazine full. The cartridges, when loaded, were sitting all the way up against the metal lips of the cartridge. The bolt just seems to glide right over the top.

I have always loaded one round at a time at the range but with the DBM I would like to use it. So far no luck.

What caliber is the gun chambered for? And and you sure the mag is in same caliber?
How far from bolt face to shell rim?
Check mag engagement.
Check torque specs on stock bolts.

Are the rounds hard to load? Do they seem to have too much pressure from the spring? Had bought a brand new savage 11 that I had to adjust the spring do to way too much tension

.308 The mag snaps in okay and the cartridges press into the mag okay. I just lightened the trigger and screwed everything back together good and tight but haven't tried to load. Out of ammo. [smilie=icon_cry.gif]

I will toy with it some more this weekend and report back.

The magazine loaded easy enough. I think the lips of the mag need to be spread a little. This would raise the cartridge up a touch allowing the bolt to pick it up.

That is what I'm thinking anyways.
