Polishing Feedramp

I just got my Systema back from being hard-chromed.Prior to being sent, I had polished the feed ramp with a Dremel and it fed all ammo I put through it w/o a problem.Now that the feed ramp is chromed I can not get it to feed HP's reliably.Any suggestions on how to polish it w/o ruining the hard-chrome finish?

KPS, you can polish it. I don't think I've ever seen one quit feeding as a result of being chromed. Normally feeding hollow points (shorter ammo) is more a function of the mag feed lips than the ramp. I would look at those first. The release point probably needs to be set back a little bit so that the round can pop up sooner. George
