I tried out my new to me Benelli Elite guns. My son the12ga, I shot the 20ga. It was a matched set. The 20ga was having feed issues. I was shooting Walmart shells with the longer metal casings. I found it would bend the edge of the casing at the top edge. At first I thought it was something in the mag tube, but when I got home I tried those shells by dropping it in the open chamber and closing it. It seemed to happen on the feed end of the cycle.
AA shells with the lower casing didn't seem to have the issue.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

I tried different shells and I have a different problem. These shells feed ok, but now doesn't eject. Frustrating.......

I ended up sending it back to Benelli. We'll see what happens.
