couple questions for the all knowing!?!

Couple question for the knowing more than me!!!

Got my Ultra Stainless II around Christmas time. and have been to range about 3 times. Try to go once a week at least, nice indoor range...
Yesterday was my first issue with this...But not sure if it was a pistol issue or a mag issue.. Had numerus infeed jams, to where most was able to give it a slap and it would feed correctly.
I say mags. because I was using the Kimber 7rd mag. and WC 10 rd. mags and seem to think I didn't pay attention at the time of which mags were doing it more...
Here are a couple picture of the feed ramp and below where the round tined to get caught....
So give me some clues guys...

Quite a bump between the feed ramp and frame in second pic. Suggest that be smoothed out.

Smooth out and stick with factory mags. If happens again, send it back to Kimber....

I would have thought that would have more depth for infeed on the frame, but don't want to grind and void any warranty.

there are many different angles ground or cut there but the one spot I thought would have more

are you slapping the back of the slide to get it to feed completely.

Whatever you do-do not touch the frame-any word like grind sends out a bad image-there have probably been more 1911's ruined by a dremel jockey.

What ammo were you using? Something new? Hollowpoints?
