I've been seeing a lot of threads about feed ramps lately and I have no idea what they are or what they do. I'd be happy if someone could educate me on this, thanks.

they are supposed to help chamber rounds more reliably who knows if it works its an "extended feed ramp" from the base of the chamber if you have an AR to look at.

Thanks! I don't have an AR too look at but I have seen the pics that Troy posted for a refrence.

LOL, well the pics told me what they looked like and where they are (Roughly) but not what they did.

The simple answer: more reliable feeding of the ammo from the magazine to the camber. Ray

The nose of the bullet will come in contact with the feed ramp, then it will "ride" up the ramp, guiding the round into the chamber. The extended feed ramps help if the rounds in the magazine aren't pushed all the way to the top, and would otherwise miss the standard feedramps, causing a stoppage. -Troy
