    BeeMaa,

    #3 is totally incorrect. I am sorry you had trouble top loading the R8. My .375 Ruger with Swarovski Z8 installed is no problem to top load. I was just at my range Sunday and prefer top loading for just one or two rounds. There is no need for snap caps on these guns. Dry fire till your hearts content! Anyway not trying to brow beat you but your biggest turnoff is simply not true.
    On the positive side what a neat day of gun shopping with your wife!
    Philip

    Don’t feel bad I am just remembering I had the same trouble at first. Just press the shell down hard into the mag.

    After further investigation, it has been determined that I was trying to shove a 375H&H into a 300WM magazine.
    The magazines for the two calibers are different and therefore this problem was created.
    Created by me...sorted by @Red Leg and @Opposite Pole .

    I understand what you are saying about pushing down to clear the feed lips on the magazine when loading.
    Appreciate the follow up.
