<P>I bought mine the first year they came out. It chambers and shoots Remington's and Winchesters fine, but I've had consistent problems with Kent and Federals. The shells won't chamber fully, and if you look at the slide release button it's not all the way down. Maybe it was just a bug they worked out after the first year.</P>
<P style="MARGIN: 0px">Do you have access to a micrometer or a dial caliper? Measure the diameter of the case head just forward of the rim, next to the rim. If you find that the shells that fit into the chamber are slightly smaller than those that do not, then your problem may be a tight chamber, or oversize shells. Shot shells can vary considerably. A difference of only 1 or 2 thousandths of an inch can make the difference on whether they go into the chamber or not.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"> </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I had some Rem. 10ga. hulls which worked fine in my BPS10, feeding properly from the magazine tube when I worked the slide. I had some Fed cases which seemed to require me to work the slide vigorously for them to be released from the magazine. I later got some Fed. cases which would normally not feed from the magazine. I found there was a difference of .015" in rim diameters between the Rem. cases and the Fed. cases which would not feed properly.</P>
