They're part of a regular annual service, 4 total, 2 on each side. But, lots of guys leave the older weak ones in specifically so as not to eject into the next station. FWIW I only have mine replaced about every 3rd annual or so...

The other thing that can cause weak ejection is crud build-up under the ejector itself. Here is an easier DIY, but be careful to guard against the detent ball and spring flying out as you remove the ejectors. Once thoroughly cleaned, I lube the spring and ball with grease which makes replacement easier, and also helps keep them from flying quite as free at the next ejector removal.

I remember when Hal DuPont was active in skeet and he loaded 1 shell for singles. He would open the gun and the shell would fly over his right shoulder and the next shooter would always catch it.

You may want to clean your chambers with either a brass brush, 400 grit emery cloth (lightly), or a brake cylinder hone (lightly). This is if your chambers arent chrome plated.
The other option is to try another brand of shell, prefferably one with a brass base.
