The Gold is unlike most other auto loaders where this is not possible in this case. The Golds have two cartridge stops with the primary one on the front of the bolt. When the bolt is all the way foward the first round is only held in place by the cartridge stop on the bolt. As the bolt moves backwards so does the first round in the magazine. The other rounds are then held in by the secondary cartridge stop. It continues to hold those rounds until the bolt get around 3/4 of the way foward. The secondary stop releases the rounds and they are stoped be the primary stop at the front of the bolt.Once long long ago in a far off land I looked down on a couple occasions and saw a live shell at my feet. Not that you are doing this but I simply was not pushing the shell in far enough.
I've seen this happen on a Charles Daly semi auto and two of my buddies 11-87's. I've never seen a Gold do it or even heard about one doing this.
It took me about ten minutes to make my Gold feed a live shell under the carrier while hand cycling it. I had to hold the carrier up and let the bolt go foward very slowly. I'll check it again tonight to look at the secondary cartidge stop.
