I had my first outing with my second hand .308 T3 at the weekend - no deer, just zeroing and a bit of practice. It's the varmint version with 5 shot magazine and in the process of getting through a box of ammo discovered I had an issue feeding the second last round each time.
First time it happened thought it was a misfire but after the appropriate drill we opened to bolt to confirm no round had in fact been picked up. Now aware of it I monitored the next few occassions and could see the same thing was happening each time. Seems like on that particular round out the mag (always second last one) the bolt is skimming over the case without picking up the round. A gentle prod with a finger seems to raise the round sufficiently for it to be picked up. The rounds before and the final round following it picked up fine so we guessed there might be a flat spot in the spring that's preventing the round being lifted high enough into the chamber.
Anyone experienced that? And is there anything worth trying to fix it (besides sucking up the cost of a new mag...).
