Ruger American 450 Bushmaster feeding issue and rep

I bought a new Ruger American 450 Bushmaster recently and when I tried to sight it in the cartridges would not feed from the magazine into the chamber. After examining the magazine I noticed that the back of the Platform ( or follower ) in the magazine ( or clip ) was sticking along the back wall. I disassembled the magazine with a small screwdriver by prying the bottom plate rearward. I sanded about 1 mm (1/32”) from the back edge of the Platform and rounded off and smoothed the edges. I bent the back of the platform up a little and reassembled the magazine. IT WORKS PERFECTLY. Here’s some photos.
