Salmoneye brought up a good point about shell length. Some older shotguns had very tight cut chambers. I use an H&R to hunt deer and it is from the 30's. Some brands of 2 3/4 " slugs are slightly longer than others when open and get stuck in my gun when ejecting. Same with 00 Buck shot. At first I thought it was dirt build up, but it was the front of the shell welding into the area at the end of the chamber.
