    I got the gun for Christmas but the rifle isn't chambering the first couple of rounds out of the magazine. The mag also wiggles around if I touch it. I sent it back for Mossberg to figure it out but I may have to sell it and buy the savage Mk 2. I would rather not though. Any ideas and mods that I could add to the gun to make it better?

    what exactly are the rounds not doing? is the bolt not picking them up or are they just not making it into the chamber?

    I am using both Blazer and Gold-Hollowpoint high velocity Remingtons.

    the Blazer is just lead. not hollowpoint, coated, or high velocity.
