Johnson Rifle ammo picky?

My new CMP M1 doesn't like the 150 gr civvie ammo I fed it. Ejects, but doesn't always rechamber. The gunsmith says its the ammo's fault. Says the M1 is pretty picky about its diet if it must dine on the economy.

With that in mind, I'm thinking back to the days when The Johnson was released as surplus or as a new hunting rifle. I heard its recoil operated action could be a bit finicky. Notably, the M1 bayonet could cause problems, so a special Johnson bayonet was devised.

Does this mean the Johnson was also picky about its ammo?
