Benellis: Speedloading M1S90s and M1 Thumb?

For the life of me I can't speedload my M1Super90 without covering my thumb in blood. The magazine spring is stuff, which I leave in the house fully loaded to ease the tension. My biggest problem is where the round 'snaps' in to the magazine...there's an indent on the piece that is on the bolt release. That thing is mighty stiff and I can't loosen it up. I jammed a snap-cap on the offending piece to try to loosen it up and left it around the house for a few days but it's still tight as hell.

IT's a new gun and has about 200 rounds through it.

Sorry to hear about that. I have never had that problem with my M1. I'll ask around at our 3-gun match this weekend and see if I can't get any info. on it.
