Exactly what load are you using? If it is low recoil, you can buy a set of springs from Cole's Gunsmithing to allow you to tune the 390 for heavy or very light loads.

Exactly what is happening, is it rechambering the fired round?

How new is the gun? If very new, it may just need a box of heavy field loads ran thru it to break it in.

How light a load is this? I had one that needed to be broke in to shoot light loads, 7/8oz, the others had no problems. I used the Cole's kit to allow me to shoot 3/4oz low recoil loads.

Shot 234 high brass and it hemmed up. Put a turkey load 3 inch with a light load behind it and it shot both great. Idk. Barrel only says 3 inch. Volley of hypersonic BB went flawless.

How far is it throwing the empty when it does eject? When was the last time it was throughly cleaned? How long has the current recoil spring been in the gun? Have you ever had the recoil spring out of the gun?

I would definitely strip it all the way down and clean it. I mean all the way. I would also buy a set of springs for it, less than $10 for the action and magazine springs and replace them both.

I would also throw them Hypersonic's in the trash or you'll be throwing the 390 in the trash if you keep shooting them.

I've never changed my magazine spring. I did get a custom stainless recoil spring from a guy on Shotgunworld. I clean my recoil spring several times per season. Its possible yours is either highly dirty or just worn our. Midwestgunworks has a replacement for $19.50 http://www.midwestgunworks.com/page/mgw ... ion-spring

It's the shells your shooting. That's the sacrifice while shooting auto loaders. You could upgrade your springs, but its a bit more costly than just paying a few extra $ for bigger rounds. If your using 2.5" shells stop. Use 2 3/4" shells. Use atleast a 1 oz load but I use remingtons 2 3/4" 1 and 1/8 oz loads and they cycle like lightening.

My gun as always cycled the cheap 7/8oz dove loads. His problem is related to his recoil spring.

Same here, and even low recoil loads with the Cole's Kit.

The factory action springs are $5.06 and the magazine spring is $8.39 now. I bought 2 dozen of each when they were $2.71 and $2.53 respectively. They fit both the 12 and 20 390,3901 and 391.
