Start with the Tube Mag Spring...if its weak, it won't push 'em in correctly.

Fun thing is, you can replace it with pretty much any tube mag spring the same length, just switch the followers.
But since you are new to Marlin 60's, look for an OEM you some work.

I was having feed and ejection problems with mine, but not holes in casings. Took it apart and cleaned and lubed. The feed ramp was really gunked up. Polished that and problems went away.

Kdub, I had that problem with my Marlin 89C, I downloaded the parts page and went through trying to see if something was mission, couldn't really tell because the parts list was very small and didn't give much detail, well I ordered a new bolt (didn't need) and extractor, when I saw the new extractor, the problem was evident, the old one din't have the complete hook, it was almost straight, the new one I put on, and what a difference, she's as good as new!
