New Hawkeye wont pick up next to last round from box

New Hawkeye will not pick up the next to last round from the box magazine. Mounted scope and plan to shoot tomorrow so I decided to chamber some rounds. I tried it numerous times. The round is ever so slightly tilted up so its not catching the round at the rear, it's sliding over it. I can touch it and it will straighten but as soon as I load another 4 rounds it does it again. So its happening with the last 2 rounds because its the round on the left side of the box mag. But its just that next to last round. Just to clarify, if I load 4. I can cycle the first two. The 3rd round (next to last) (left side) is tilted and the bolt slides over. The last round will cycle

I'll call tomorrow, just hope I don't have to send it off. Weak spring maybe? Its unfired so I don't know why it would be. Opinions?

4 rounds in the mag or 3? Does it work w 3? It very well could have a minute lip edge out of plane. Sand any sharp edges w 400grit. Check mag walls for any irregular bends ...if the first round lies next to the receiver raceway (left side) then the mag's left side lip needs a very slight upward bend. Very slight! I'm fairly sure your mag spring is fine.

I sent it to Ruger. It should be back Tuesday. They replaced the magazine and something else. Not sure. I believe it was fixed and shipped back the same day they received it.

Got it back. Works fine now. New mag box spring, follower, stock screws, polished chamber.

I did fire it right before I sent it off and ran out of windage on my scope turret. I wasn't impressed with the groups.I have switched scopes so we will see how it shoots. Im hoping the scope was the issue. They sent a target that was a 3/4" 3 shot group at 50yds. If I can average 1.5" at 100,i will be happy.
