Sounds like an ammo issue to me. You said you only a problem with the Federal? I would stay away from that ammo in the case.
I have 10 Marlin 22 levers, between 39A's and 1897's, and have never had any issues like you describe. They are a very well built, beautiful gun!

If you try other brands of ammo that you know are fresh and have the same issue, it is possible that your rifle has a headspace issue. That would warrant a trip to the gunsmith. I have never heard of that issue with a 39A, but there is a first time for anything. Safety first!
