Forget the Gold Dot ammo for now, use 230gr FMJ.

I have a Ultra Raptor Stainless, never had a failure with mine. I have several Ultra's none of them have had any failure's.
Even if you swap for a Pro or any other model there will be some degree of break in and 230gr FMJ should be used with any barrel length. Did you get one that needs some adjustment? Maybe? You must try what is recommended to eliminate other issues.
All my Ultra's will fire, and function with Speer 185gr Bonded Hollow Points +P.
I didn't understand the need to "trim" the "paperclip" takedown tool. The L-shaped wire worked fine with my Ultra's. However myself and some others use a NDZ "tool" it is much easier than the wire. Search on this site you should find the info.
NDZ tool is in this picture right in front of the business card and Breakfree, little black plastic tube, very simple but effective. Wish I had thought of making it.
