After converting a Rem700 action from a 308Win to a 6mmRemAI I encountered magazine feeding problems.
Most of the solutions involved gunsmith work, new floorplate and magazine etc etc. All around $300 to $400 stuff.
I spoke to about the tenth gunsmith in SA and he suggested I simply file the feeding rails of the action open a little bit and polish with sandpaper.
Well, a $7 sharp file, $0.50 sandpaper and 5 min work and Bob's your uncle and Jimmy's your aunt and she now feeds 6mmRemAI rounds !!!!Big SmileBig SmileBig Smile

Excellent However, you now have 9 "hungry" gunsmiths out there because you didn't follow their costly advice. Bad Boy! LOL.

Most Gunsmiths in S.A charge you a fortune and don't deliver on what they promised
