Having problems with feeding rounds in my Mod 70 Coyote Lite in 308. It's been going on for a while but have been able to manage it. Things came to a head, prompting me to decide to get it sorted one way or another, when whilst stalking in the rain (with a witness) I fired a round went to chambner a fresh round and as I pushed the bolt forward the fresh round pinged out into the mud. As i drew back to get the next round the same thing happened.
This also happens if i've loaded the rounds in and held the top round down whilst closing the bolt and subsequently try to chamber a round.
When putting rounds in the magazine i have noted that they don't snap in securely as they do in my 243 (also a mod 70 but a sporter version).
Any ideas on what I need to do to fix this problem.
