Maybe I missed the memo, but I'm not seeing a mag problem. Sounds like they are getting into the chamber ok, just not closing the deal 100%.
I'm assuming an AR15 of some sort? 5.56/.223?
What kind of ammo? If your using steel cased ammo, try something else. If that fixes it, well there you go.

The tabs pull off . Grab the round and pull it out the end of the clip....like a sliding motion.
