The problem you experienced is commonly experienced by 870 shooters and is believed to be due to the use of steel bases utilized by the Winchester Valu Paks marketed by Wal Mart. As far as I know other Winchester shells will not give you this problem.

There is a related issue experienced with new 870 Express models, which sees to be related to many coming off the line with tight chambers. Those with the problem often loosen up with use but the problem can be cured by polishing chambers with steel wool or the like.
