StormLake 10MM 6" bbl and feeding issues

I bought above bbl (NEW) in 6" to use for hunting. I am working up loads using all NEW brass (Starline) CCI 300 &350 LP primers and Hornady 180 and 200 XTP bullets. All loads are OAL @ 1.260, lightly chamfer inside and outside of case mouth, and have gone from no crimp, to med-hvy crimp using a Lee factory crimp die. When i first tried the new SL 6" bbl with a ISMI 22# spring and SS captured guide rod, i had alot of FTF's. I sent the bbl back to SL, who polished the feedramp and opened up the chamber.They gave me GREAT customer service, but even now, i get FTF'S.....i'm going to the range tomorrow to make sure, but on un-crimped rounds, i can't even release the slide lock and chamber the 1st round. Maybe i'm asking for what won't happen, but i honestly thought that i could buy a name brand bbl, and not have so many issues...Would i be better off to sell this, and buy a LW, or KKM...I'll even spring for a BAR-STO if i can have 99.9 % reliability.....By the way, all cases were resized in a RCBS carbide resize die before loading....any help would be greatly appreciated...rsbhunter

Do the finished rounds chamber or fall short? If so, with new brass back off on the taper crimp. It should be tight enough to prevent set-back (chambering forces round deeper). Too tight and the brass may bulge an in a match grade chamber may prevent it from fully chambering.

They all chambered fine, it was just the feeding...i did polish the ramp and top of bbl, and it seems to have improved...might polish (small amount ) the face where the firing pin hole is , as it might be hanging alittle there...Thanks, rsbhunter
