I think the magazine follower is tilting forward and down when the bolt drags across it on closing. So I am thinking there might be a follower design that has changed. Last night I was dropping cases on the follower and watching the movement when the bolt starts to move forward. The front of the bolt hits the back of the follower and moves it first forwad and then it tilts down in the front as the bolt closes over it. The action is perfect to jam the bullet tip into the rear of the barrel face.
There may not be a solution other than to snap the round under the feed rail and let it come out of the magazine as designed.
