you need to remove the lacquer from the chamber. to do that use a chamber mop or very large shotgun type patch soaked in denatured alcohol it will disolve the lacquer instantly on contact. if you dont you can experience the same situation with brass if any was transferred to the chamber.
the reason its ok to use on chrome is lacquer simply will not stick to chrome. what it does is the heat melts the lacquer on the steel case and sticks to the chamber walls. lacquer has a very strong affinity to uncoated steel. thats why you see some folks using steel ammo just fine in a AR15 and others nothing but problems.
