I've seen no feeding issues with the Navy MOD1 B/R I built up. I always use USGI enblocs.

Default Clips

There are some Chinese clips floating around and some that came with Greek ammo that were picky.

In all other respects the rifle shoots and cycles fine.
No, you should not have this problem. I've shot hundreds of rounds through my 308 and 7.62 Garands and never have any issues.

First round or two work fine, the next two usually won't strip off the clip, then the final four usually work fine. Figured the rifle was just new and "tight", and it might work itself out. After 200 rounds it's still doing the same thing. Performed the tilt test - passed with flying colors.

One clips had all eight rounds pop off properly. It's an older one, stamped SA on the base. Only one I have of that manufacturer.

I might take one or two clips and wire brush the park off - see if that helps.
How is your opinion rod spring? Also are you sure your gas port is clear and lined up. Is your gas plug tight and is it sealing?

No problems with mine either and I shoot it in Garand matches every month.

If your op spring is weak it could easily cause this problem. Not enough tension to strip rounds reliably.

Op rod spring is new. Guess I could swap it out just to check. The gas plug is tight with no issues I can see. Though I will unscrew it and check the gas port orientation.

Thanks gents!

I've only ever had one FTF with my .308 Special and I think that was due to the ammo not the enbloc clip.

Those are usually only a issue when trying too use American narrow extractor groove 30.06 ammo, they are intended too be use with the wider extractor grooved ammo like 70's and up HXP. JMO en-blocs shouldn't be a issue with 7.62/.308 ammo.
