My son purchased an early model of the 5 shot Taurus 45 ACP Tracker 445 that had tight chambers which barely passed the cartridge minimum specs test. Unburned powder and lead build up on the chamber mouths and sides contributed to the problems you mentioned. A quick solution was to size a 45/70 case using a 45 ACP sizing die to the depth of a 45 ACP case. Use it as a cleaner or scraper for the chamber mouths followed by a clean patch. A cleaner burning powder and jacketed bullets mostly solved the problem but not entirely. Tight chambers and grungy chamber mouth build up will contribute to cartridge set back in these revolvers and will lock up the action. Watch for high primers also.

Be safe!

My wooden nickel's worth.
