Rem 700 mag spring
Lately I've had the bolt riding over the top of the cartridge with more than two rounds in the mag. Seems to chamber fine with two...but when I load a third, the bolt won't catch the cartridge rim, it'll go right over it. This is a 700 short action with no floor plate.
I'm thinking the spring must have gotten bent at a wrong angle or lost some of it's tension so it's not pressing that follower up hard enough. I'll just buy a new mag spring, no big deal. Is this a common problem?
