Yes- the spring pushes on the follower, which pushes the cartridge up. Too much tension, and the cartridge is shoved against the bottom of the bolt.

What is churning in pumps?

When a pump is running with its discharge valve closed. The temperature inside pump rises continuously as the same liquid is continuously rotating inside pump. Due to rise in temperature of liquid, metal component's temperature also begin to rise. As the mass of impeller is much less than the pump casing. The expansion due to heat on impeller is higher than the casing. As there is very less clearance between pump casing and impeller. A time comes when impeller starts rubbing against the casing which further increases its temperature and the impeller seizes with casing. This is known as churning.

How do automatic guns reload?

Automatic weapons typically use recoil or a gas blowback system to eject the spent cartridge casing and reload the next cartridge from the magazine. Blowback systems use the gas from the powder ignition of the cartridge to eject the casing and reload the next shell. A portion of the ignited gas is redirected to force the action back far enough to reload. Most automatic weapons use this design. Recoil systems are just what it implies - the recoil from the ignited cartridge forces the bolt back and reloads the next.

Can you shoot a 22 long cartridge in a 22 long rifle gun?

Tentatively, yes, although you should refer to the owner's manual for the manufacturer's stance before doing this. Depending on what action and feed system your rifle is, you may not be able to get .22 Long cartridges to feed from the magazine. However, if your rifle has a tubular magazine, this should not be a problem. Another possible problem to consider if you're using a semi-auto rifle is the possibility of short stroking, which may lead to stovepiping of the spent casing as it is ejected. Only if its bolt,single shot,or lever action.Sorry no Auto-Loaders...
