It is also possible that the particular gun does not like that brand of HP ammo and instead of the round sliding on the feed ramp into the chamber, it is catching and bouncing straight up. Try round nose and see if it solves the problem. If not, try other magazines.
If not, keep going through the frustrations like others have done until the gun gets "settled in."
