I had problems with feeding when I first got the rifle. The bolt would pick up the round out of the msg and the round would feed high and miss the chamber and stand up vertical. This happened about every 20-30 rounds. I fixed it by backing off the front action screw to about 25 inch pounds. I seem to remember the owners manual recommend 60-65 inch pounds (?) I don't think that much pressure is needed on a. 22LR action, and since I back my action screws off I haven't had a feeding problem. Every once in a while, the extraction is a little weak, but I could not be running my bolt fast enough. The rifle's saving grace is that's it accurate with any ammo I put in it, so despite the occasional ejection issues, I'm keeping it.
