Potential project: First strike matrix

With all the good things I've been hearing about FS rounds I've gotten the urge to try them. I've done a couple mods on my matrix that turned out well so I was thinking the next thing would be to make a breech that takes first strikes. I have a couple ideas for feeding them but I'm not quite ready to hack up a breech just yet.

My biggest concern at the moment is getting the rounds to feed without jamming. I read that Tiberius guns have a tapered bolt for using FS rounds. A standard matrix bolt is not tapered and has an o-ring on the tip to seal the breech when it fires. If I can get a reliable feed system working, are the FS rounds just going to catch on the bolt?

Your thoughts please.
