I ran across a small problem this weekend with a BFI 30 rnd mag and using speed loaders with them.
It took me a bit to figure out what was going on. I decided since I have quite a few rounds on stripper clips that I would start loading my mags with them using a spoon. After about 5 or so rounds would go in, the noses on the rest would tip up jamming the mag. I finally noticed what the problem was on the third stripper.
At the front of the mag the overlaps are tacked together and the inside piece was angled in slightly. This would catch the tips of the bullet causing them to tip up and jam the mag. with rounds in the mag the clearance was so tight it was hard to tell if there was even any clearance (this is the rounds on the left side of the mag where the end of the metal is). Handloading was fine with the mag. :(

My colt mag works fine using strippers.

Wondering if I can maybe somehow bend the piece out,
