I recently (finally) picked up some 7.62x39 stripper clips for my SKS.
I keep having an issue when loading the magazine.
I place the stripper into the stripper clip guide on the charging handle and press the rounds into the magazine. Each time I do this, it stops going in after 8 rounds, leaving 2 rounds on the stripper clip. I have tried 10 different clips, 2 different magazines and 3 different types of ammo.
I see no obstructions in the receiver.
Winchester white box
Tapco 20 round
Tapco 10 round , both with plastic followers.
Any suggestions? Solutions? Similar problems?
