My son in law just bought a second hand Remington Model 597 22 rifle. Sometimes when a round feeds, it points straight down in the magazine instead of going into the chamber. The rifle sometimes mis-fires as well. The mis-fires might be due to cheap ammo.

Any suggestions on what is going on with the feeding problems?

Only thing I can think of is the feed ramp, if your are brave enough a dremel and a good stone can fix that problem IF that is the problem
