Why is the loading gate on a 30-30 Model 336 so stiff it is hard to load the magazine?

They've been that way from the beginning of this design. You need to use the tried and true method. Push the first cartridge into the gate, leaving the rim out. Then push that cartridge the rest the way in with the next cartridge. Continue this until it's full.
