Try different ammo. Also you said your new to guns, did you clean it before use? Often companies put extra grease on new guns and this can cause jams if not cleaned.
If after cleaning and ammo switch there are still problems contact ruger. They have great CS.
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
