Yeah, standard velocity rounds will not cycle the slide on an AA. CCI Mini-Mags and Remington Goldens are about the only things that feed. AA kits need to run really wet. Cleaning the barrel doesn't make a difference, lube does.
If you keep it heavily lubed, you should get close to 100% with CCI Mini-Mags. The Remington will give you a fail to fire rate of about 2% because of the low quality of the ammo.
