What sort of ammo?
Some bullet designs will hit the rifling sooner than others. A 147 gr round may hit the rifling before being fully seated, whereas a 115 will likely drop right in w/ no drama. When you pull the round out are there rifling marks on the bullet? Not sure? Mark it with a sharpie or similar and try again. If yes, try a different ammo design and see if that fixes it.
Rounds should drop unassisted, fully into the barrel (Google "Plunk Test") If it doesn't then there is a problem with either the ammo or the barrel.
If, after your ammo passes the "plunk test," the pistol still doesn't want to go into battery without a fight, a call to Springfield is probably in order.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?
