    I have a Savage Model 12 BVSS 22-250 that always misfeeds the last round out of the magazine. It always wants to feed the round low and to the left of the chamber. Has anyone had a similar problem and if so, what would it take to correct this situation? This rifle has only had approximately 50 rounds thru it. I bought it from a dealer out of town as a trade in. Maybe for the same reason. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cycle the bolt faster.
    I have 2 Savage 12's and 3 Savage 10's.If you cycle the bolt slow they will all misfeed.It doesn't matter if they are staggered feed or center feed.

    I have a 12FVSS that does the same thing.

    Thanks Txhillbilly! I'll try your idea this weekend at the range. Sounds like a simple solution to me.

    Txhillbilly said it's because the bolt is not cycled fast enough. I'll be checking it out this weekend. Good luck with yours too.
