My thinking is that the rounds arent sitting high enough, or possible the ejector/top round holder are pushing it down?
According to 1927 Ministry of Defence of Finland's Mosin Nagant m/91 repair guide, the problem is most likely caused either by "teeth" of the follower assembly protruding too much or dented magazine wall. Less likely cause is failure of one of the springs.

3. the follower is leaning to the right a little bit attached is a picture of that.
From 1927 Ministry of Defence of Finland's Mosin Nagant m/91 repair guide. Loose translation by me from Finnish original:

"5. The follower does not move enough to the left when the bolt is closed.

Problem:
1) The follower's "tooth" or front end rests on the cut made in the stock.
2) The eccentric part of the bolt is significantly worn.
3) The top of the follower (which rests on the eccentric part of the bolt frame) is considerably worn.
4) The right wall of the magazine is bent inwards.
5) The bolt frame is so worn that the eccentric part of the bolt frame does not move the adjuster to the left.

Effect: Slows down shooting.

Repair:
1) The cut in the stock is widened.
2) The bolt frame is replaced.
3) The follower is replaced.
4) The wall is straightened.
5) Unless the fault can be rectified by replacing the bolt frame or the follower, the rifle must be sent to the gun factory."
