    I just purchased a new walnut Patriot in .22-250 cal. Went to shoot it and the magazine doesn’t have the rounds high enough to feed properly. With the magazine in as far as I can get it, there is still 1/8” between mag and bottom of mag well. Anyone else have this problem? I have not tried customer service yet. Wanted to see if this is just my rifle or ?? The bolt seems like it is really sloppy and if I lift up on bolt handle it feeds somewhat better,but, not perfect! Not sure if it is a mag problem or bolt problem........any ideas?

    My first patriot(synthetic though) had an occasional bolt sliding over round issue. I snapped a couple pics and emailed customer service 2 days latter a new mag and housing was in mailbox, worked great after the,swap. The follower on the original mag was very sloppy in its lift , when it came up flat its was fine but,on occasion would tilt ?????hmmm where have we seen this before......
