Several years ago I picked up a badly beat-up Mossberg 500..I completerly o/hauled & refinished it...It turned out so good my son, then about 32 years old, was in love with it.. I gave it to him for a b/d present. He's been hunting with it for about 5-6 yrs. Last week he told me he had trouble ejecting shells after firing. He brought it to me and I can find NO PROBLEMS w/ejection using dummy rounds. I think it might be the ammo he's using. I suggested he try another brand. I'd like some feedback as to your opinions.. Is it the ammo that's expandng and sticking in the chamber? I'd like some experienced views. Thanks. Concealer

Only ejection problems I've seen on my 590s (and a friend's) was due to the heavy recoil from slugs/sabots. Prematurely unlocked action and difficult to extract.

I had a 500 that didn't like high brass some days, loved it the next. I got that 500 in trade from a friend when it was a few years old and showing the signs of being rode hard and put to bed wet. Have a gunsmith check the action and timing. Could be it just needs a tune-up.

May your lead always hit center mass and your brass always land in your range bag.
