    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.

    actually the stripper clips and clip guides work extremely well. i use the edge of a hard object like a table top or something. in the army i used the buttstock of my m16 to ram the ammo in the mag. didnt care about scratching the stock up.

    this vid shows how to use em a couple minutes in

    if you use the bare hand to push the bullets into the mag, at some point you will rip a good long chunk of skin off. wear gloves or use a object to do it. the butt of another magazine works too.
