Thanks everyone for all the great help!
I did contact SA and after a few days and one follow-up was told that this was 'normal'.
So next steps for me will be to try different mags.
I will also try different bullets. Those Sierra MK are kind of expensive and overkill for the type of shooting I do. It was just what I had on hand.
And while I did try and clean the mags on the inside, I neglected to pay attention to pushing cartridges all the way back.
So lots of fun stuff to do and try out over the next few weeks.

Thanks all

Fred

Thanks from boomerpusher and Rich D

Let us know how it goes when you get the new mags and then shoot again using the new mags and different ammo. Pics of it would be great!

That should clear things up for you!

I'd suggest that if Springfield thinks it's normal that they have a serious problem.

Wouldn't be surprising.YOu might consider this as potential culprit.

You can smooth the action out a lot with a solid round op rod guide regrdless.

You could also look through the Ammunition section and check out some great info for handloading, especially about your COL.
