That's a fine rifle. I'm guessing that since it's always the last round in the mag the problem would be with the follower or the spring. As the rounds are stacked in the magazine they would align themselves with the next round below. The last round would be affected by the angle of the follower. I'm not sure about the 452 magazine but on some the follower could be installed in either direction. If the magazine can't be dissasembled then check to make sure the lips aren't spread more than necessary. This too will sometimes allow a round to "nose up" as it is pushed into battery.

My feed problem is usually the FIRST round in the mag (five round mags) - after a couple of shots, I can fill the mag, and it's no longer a problem, until the next time I go shooting.
