Checked the spring again. It seems fine. The problem seems to be, the round (s) following the initial/first round into the chamber catch on the follower and I can't close the receiver and chamber the round. Examining these bullets, it looks like the catch is hitting the tip of the lead bullet as they show a slight indentation.
Anyone else having this problem? If so, what steps did you take to solve it?
Looking forward to some warm weather and getting to the range. As always, I appreciate any and all feedback.
