Many feeding issues, especially in 416 Rigby caliber. Ruger have modified the claw. However main issue is extraction....operate the bolt at high speed such as under back up situations or follow up on DG with a scope fitted the empty case will hit the scope and drop back into the mag causing a jam......

Many of these issues arise again and again in proficiency tests.



Personally I prefer 100% reliability and for me the Ruger does not provide that.


I experienced the same issues with my RSM in .416 Rigby, but removing the burrs from the sides of the ejector and installing a heavier ejector spring cured the problem.

That is good information to know indeed!
