Problem with my new (to me) Kimber

I recently traded for my first Kimber (a used Team Match II). I'm trying to work up a plinking load for it and every load I try the next to last round does not eject. Always the same round. Everything else works just fine.

Anyone have any Ideas?

I'd start by trying some different magazines. How many magazines do you have for it currently?

One trick to try; after loading the mag, rap the back side on the bench to verify everything is seated to the back of the mag. Doesn't cost anything and may solve your issue. Not long term, but should help in troubleshooting.

I've had good luck with Chip McCormick Power Mags and am really liking the new McCormick RPM's.
