I have shot about 15 boxes and never cleaned the gun yet. It was fine until I went in a layout blind that was dirty and grassed in this past week.
So, you've put nearly 400 rounds through your autoloader, have never cleaned it, are experiencing a hang-up, and are wondering why.
Clean your gun, pardner. Totally.
Better yet, have your gunsmith clean your gun. (Too many guys think cleaning a shotgun means running a swab through the barrel a couple of times....) Then get back to us.
