    Bought a "like" new SS Hunter with 5 1/2" barrel. Jams 1st round into the ramp on a consistent basis and jams with an ejected case hanging up frequently.

    It's like the shell sits to low in the magazine and catches on the feed ramp. Especially bad with hollow points, but I've tried all kinds of ammo and it's something ion the gun or mag causing the issue

    Internet research shows this to be a fairly common issue with a myriad of solutions, most involving modifying the mag itself.

    Anyone have this issue and does anyone have a solution?

    there was a post on rimfire central named sgw gunsmith. He had a great tutorial on "tuning up" magazines, I did it with mine and have no problems with misfeeds. go to that site and do a search for him.
