    Follower/feeding problem Rem 700

    I'm having problems with a follower on a rem .308 700 ADL style setup. the bolt face closes over top the rounds rather than feeding them into the chamber. ammo is below 2.80COL and is not hanging up on or below the feedramp

    the follower is from a newer remington stamped (garbage), not milled. the follower and the the spring are originally from a BDL setup. Two questions:

    1. could the foot of the spring be moving around in the bottom of the stock (mcmillan a5) enough to cause unbalanced pressure on the follower against the feedrails and cause the rounds to ride nose-high in the mag?

    2. I'm going to replace the worthless follower anyway and get a few springs while I'm at it, is there a better aftermarket supplier than just ordering a rem factory replacement milled follower?

    I don't want to turn it into BDL or into a detachable mag. just want reliable feeding as its currently set up.

    Any advice?

    Thanks in advance

    it sounds like a problem i had earlier with my Rem 700.

    i hadn't properly seated the magazine box in the action which was causing the follower to get caught against the magazine box.
    Fast is fine. Accuracy is final. You need to learn to shoot slow, real fast- Wyatt Earp
