Default RE: could there possibly be a problem with a winchester?

The cases of the WSM's are very fat and you are probably bottoming out the follower spring against the floor plate thus making a very tight fit with three rounds in the magazine.

You can try to bend the bottom section of spring that attaches to the floor plate and straighten it out a little so it does not have the bow in it. That might give you the little bit of room you need for three cases. Or you can ask your dealer to try another follower that may be a little thinner than yours.

Is it the CRPF model or the CRF model? I thought my Model 70 CRF was a little rough when closing the bolt and even when flicking off the safety to fire. My new CRPF doesn't exhibit those symptons.

I had the same problem with my M. 70 synthetic stainless in 300 WSM. After firing the bolt was very tight and hard to open. With more shots fired it got worse as it heated up. It turned out the lugs were not seating evenly and needed to be lapped. Once this was done the problem disappeared and it now shoots excellent. I'd suggest having it looked at by a Winchester authorized warranty location. Lapping the lugs could increase headspace and this must remain within 3 & 6 thou. (I think). gg.
