    Hello,

    I recently purchased a CMMG .22 upper for my AR.
    I am having terrible failure to feed problems. I tried 3 different
    types of ammo. Same thing. I watch thru the ejection port as I
    charge, and it seems the round isn't fully lined up with the barrel
    as I let go of the handle. I obviously have to eject the unfired round
    and look at it. It looks as if the bullet part of the round gets 'bent' or
    is scraped.

    Where should I start my trouble-shooting? ie. Is it the mag? I don't think
    so. Maybe the bolt? Can the ejector cause this?

    Thanks

    what upper kit did you get??

    a good closeup pic of the chamber with a jammed round would help.
