I got my M1A home and I loaded up the 10rd mag, its a double stack so one round comes off the right feed lip the other off the left.

now off the left the round runs right into the "feed ramp" it will chamber the round but you can see the tip of the bullet its smashed just a little bit.

I think this will cause a jam eventually.

so did I get a bad rifle/ mag combo?

Will you just take the damn thing out and shoot it?

see the above post. The gun and magazines need to be broken in.

You need good old fashion USGI magazines.

Yeah, same here. That is the way it is. I've shot maybe 2k rounds through mine, no feed related malfunctions except when shooting lead bullets from the magazine.

NEVER load live rounds from an M1A/M1/AR15 in your home with the full force of stripping them out of the mag. ALL of these rifles have a free floating firing pin. There is a chance of a slam fire, albeit small, but a chance nonetheless. Only chamber live rounds at the range or anywhere you do not mind a round going off. It has happened before.
