    Savage 110 Tactical Feeding Issues


    I recently picked up a new Savage 110 Tactical and it's an awesome rifle. My only complaints so far is the firearm does not seem to want to feed the rounds correctly. I'm new to Savage rifles, so this has caught me off guard a little bit but not new to firearms. I have my suspicions what's going on here, but I'm not here to be a know it all so I'm willing to listen to any and all opinions. Hopefully we can get this squared away and we're ready to rock and roll again. The firearm seems to feed the first 3 rounds no problem, but any more in the magazine then that and we're asking for trouble.

    I was under the impression this .308 caliber firearm came with a 10-round magazine but this mag doesn't seem to want to hold more than 6 and like I said above, anymore than 3 and we're not cooking with gasoline anymore.

    Your rifle has a magazine with a 10 round capacity. There is a problem with your cartridges or the magazine. Is it factory Ammo or handloads. Knowing the COAL and the COAL capacity of the magazine may shed light on the mag function issue. Also determining if there is a problem with the magazine by performing some spring/follower compression test may help. Lastly you could contact Savage or purchase an additional magazine to test.

    Hello,
    The cartridges are factory ZQ1 brass cased 7.62x51. The magazine is an MDT polymer magazine. I have contacted Savage about the issue but so far I haven't received a response.

    I have the same rifle and the feeding problem with the 10 round magazine is a common issue. The problem is that the magazine fits like a BB in a boxcar...lots of play. I have a 5 round magazine that I use instead without a problem. All Savage will do, maybe, is send you another magazine. Some guys on various forums report that another magazine worked. Other than that....who knows. Sorry this seems to be sorta negative but Savage knows about the issue and they just keep turning out the same old 110 Tactical with ill fitting magazines...so there ya have it.

    Hi wbm,
    Thanks for stopping in, great information. I had an idea that some of these Savage rifles weren't perfect out of the box but I had it on good authority that they were solid firearms regardless so I rolled the dice and took a gamble. Despite this relatively minor set back, I'm pleased with the rifle thus far. My expectations are to find a 10-round magazine that is reliable and to get this rifle shooting as advertised. If that isn't asking too much, I'm more then sure I will be very happy with this firearm.

    I hear ya. Overall I like the rifle. A lot of features at a good price. The magazine I have feeds correctly and I never had a problem with the 5 round mag. I would see if Savage will send you a magazine. Early on the 110T had ejection problems also. Savage did mitigate that with a modified ejector that mine had so no problems there.
