    How did you try to chamber the round? Did you lock the bolt back and try by releasing the bolt stop or could you have tried by riding the charging handle?

    That isn't normal, does it do it with a different mag?

    I believe it's mag related.

    Use a magnet to determine which mags are steel vs aluminum. Typically the mag that comes with the rifle is Aluminum, the FN mags in a box are steel.
