Re: Savage 99 Feeding problem
I too have a recently purchased a Savage 99 (mine in 250-3000) with a similar feed problem. If you insert 2 or more rounds in the magazine, then the last one will not chamber. If you insert one (gently), it seems to chamber ok. I was pleased to see the response (thanks steve99f) about the adjustment, and will check it out. Even so, the spring in the magazine seems weak compared to other rifles I've loaded. Is replacing that spring difficult (requiring removal of the Magazine). I have seen numerous cautions regarding the risks with disassembly of these magazine, and difficulty reassembling correctly.
