Default Beretta 20 gauge double feed

My beretta 20 gauge (al 390) silver mallard has a problem cycling heavy loads like 3in steel shot it cycles light dove loads with no problems but the heavy loads recently began to jam in that once fired two shells eject from the magazine causing it to jam in the receiver. I have cleaned the gun top to bottom inside and out but the problem persists and I can't figure out why all of a sudden it's doing this. Any advice ?

Look at both the magazine and recoil springs. It sounds like either the recoil spring is too weak or the magazine spring is much too strong. It could also be that the bolt is binding up on something towards the back of its stroke. If this is the case take the gun to a gunsmith and he should be able to identify the problem and fix it. Otherwise a replacement spring should fix the problem.

Never Forget.
