Sorry for revisiting the Parker Hale poor magazine feed subject again however, I don't seem to be able to find any info on my particular issue.
The rifle is awesomely accurate and just perfect for the woodland stalking that I mostly do. The problem is the superclip magazine holds the rounds so poorly that the bolt does not always pick the round up and I have to gently press the rounds in the magazine in a way that allows the head of the cartridge to sit up properly against the magazine lips.
Additionally I have noticed that there is a very small amount of play when the magazine is clicked home that allows the mag to be raised very slightly. Thinking this was the problem, I have simulated lifting the magazine slightly to see if the bolt picked up the rounds more consistently and the bolt actually fouls the mag lips.
I know this magazine was made for both the 1200 and scout series of rifles with the .243 and .308 scout versions having a spacer for the shorter brass.
So if if the mag is sitting correctly is there anything I can do to make the rounds sit better in the mag?
