I just picked up a custom JP Sauer chambered in 9.3x62 that does not feed round nose bullets from the left side of the box. Will feed spire points from both sides of the box. Any suggestions?

Thanks

How does the misfeed occur? Failure to feed out, bullet nose hits breech face?

Here is how I make things feed; look at it when it is doing what you don't want it to do. Look through the situation and you can see what will need to be done to change it's behavior. A slow motion camera can work. Then, make the change required to the steel. It is either intuitive, or impossible, for some to envision.
One possibility is that the maker made the feed rails too wide, but that is a complete guess.

Bobster, the bolt starts to pick up the round and the round moves a little and then bolt slides over the top of the case. If you stop the bolt and pull it back then restart the bolt forward again it will feed.

My Mexican mauser 8mm/06AI does the same thing. It looks like the rear of the case is not moving up soon or quickly enough. Just from the left side.

Hipshoot, Have you figured anything out or just dealing with it?

AI cartridtes need the front of the feed rails operated on or they will do what you describe. Because they ain't tapered and Mauser feed lips, are.

Apparently, it is a bullet nose issue. Take some Dykem or a blue Sharpie and color the feed rail on the left side and any ramp in front of it. Cycle and look for the contact point(s). Stone that area until you get it to feed.

So far I've been just dealing with it. It has gotten a little bit better as the rifle was shot very little. I have been double clutching it a bit like you.
The front of my feed rails have been worked on but perhaps not enough.

Thanks Hipshot. I will have to get out the stones and do a little at a time I guess.
