    HI all.

    I'm stumped! Has anyone ever seen burn marks on the under side of the magazine plate? Any idea what can cause this and what does it mean for my rifle?

    Are you using military ball/surplus ammo? Caliber, rifle, handloads (if so ruptured case?) or factory???? I have had this happen using Military ammo from (sorry guys SA) and was told by a Smith to stop using it, but, that it wouldn't harm the rifle, oxymoron... Welcome to the forum.

    Yes, would need to know a lot more to even know for sure what you are talking about. Welcome to the forum.
