Larry Potterfield, CEO and Founder of MidwayUSA, demonstrates the difference between a controlled round feed rifle action and one that is a push feed style action. Controlled round feed refers to an action that remains in control of the cartridge throughout the entire feeding process. As the cartridge is stripped from the magazine it slides up under the extractor and is held against the bolt face as it moves into the chamber. A push feed action, such as a Remington model 700, strips the cartridge from the magazine and uses it's forward momentum to chamber the round. The extractor does not retain the cartridge until the bolt is fully closed.
