winchester model 70
I too, own a Winchester Model 70 Sporter XTR 3006 and just bought extra magazines as they are removable and holds 4 cartiges. The new magazines seem to be tighter than the original and cannot be loaded directly from top. The ammo has to be worked in at an angle. Winchester parts salesman claims that the newly purchased magazines are correct and this type of loading is correct.
Is there anyone familiar with this rifle and the detachable magazine?
I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks
