By jove I think youv'e done it
After going through the rifle for a third time I measure the round opening in the carrier and found the carrier had a tapered slot for the round.The opening at the breach was smaller than the rear. The carrier must have been dropped at one time and closed the opening just enough to keep from feeding the ammo. Thanks for all the help and suggestions you guys are great. I am going out this weekend and going to take the ole girl along.
If I pull my pistol run, if I pull my rifle run faster.
