The slant would help, but I don't think it will totally eliminate your problem. You are still funneling a group of paintballs down into the breech, and anywhere there is funneling like that you run into the risk of jamming.

The problem is that piantballs are a very finicky ammunition. They are too soft to really compress (like bullets in a clip). They tend to get sticky if it's humid, which makes them jam even more.

The reason companies like RAP4 build such a complicated magazine is because it is what works reliably.
