    Default Mag box adjustment?

    For those of you who have had to adjust your magazine boxes to achieve better feeding of the rounds off of the follower what tool did you use to do this? I was thinking of removing the box from the action on my Savage 10 which was formerly a .243 win. and fixing it into a bench mounted vise and squeezing the top curved portion inward just a bit at a time and rechecking?

    Thanks! I didn't know there was such a tool. I thought I was the only one to ever have this issue.

    Interesting, I have been struggling with tweaking the lips of my .223 mag.
    i was going to buy 22-250 mag and see if that was closer.

    Default Savage 10 Box mag issue

    My fabbed feed lip tool would work flawlessly if I could use it. The problem is I don't think I can remove the Box mag from the action. I have found through some internet searches that this is very common among shooters who try to do their own work. The way that the box is retained on the Savage 10 Action makes it pretty difficult to remove without deforming the box and would rather not mess it up. Instead I think I'm going to try a different approach and use some sort of plate placed on the lips and press them down and tweak them that way? any other ideas?
