Has anyone found that the black coating on the barrels is causing the rounds to feed hard into the chamber? Will a chamber bore clear all of this out? The reason I ask is my rounds are rather difficult to chamber. I have to use the forward assist with almost every round. When they eject, there is some black residue on the casing that doesn't look like burnt powder. I've chambered a round and pulled it out and there are no chamber marks on the copper so I don't think that is any issue. This is only happens with Independence 55gr FMJs. I can shoot PMC X-Tac without any issues.

You could drop a reamer in there and clean it up but my choice would be to stick with mainline ammo if I didn't reload. It may well be only that lot from them is "tall" . I would measure the shoulder movement with various ammo and see what the variation is from the unfired to fired.
