    If I understand your post correctly the ejector is catching on the front of the shell base when loading. Are you sure it isn't an ammo problem? A slightly oversized or improperly sized base would cause that problem. The only other thing I would look at is the condition of the chamber. The shell should drop in easily and corrosion or dirt/plastic build up in the chamber could prevent that. I suppose you could have an out of spec ejector. With the barrel off does the ejector move freely? Does it protrude into the chamber when it is seated all the way? If it is an ejector problem it is probably best to call TriStar and talk to them.
