I shot some factory Federal American Eagle 110 FMJ's thru my 30 carbine Blackhawk today - case ejection was very stiff.  Do you suppose the cylinders need polishing?  This gun is a "pre warning label" pistol, but it's new to me, and is virtually like new.  Any suggestions?

I have had the same problem in a .30 Carbine and a .32-20 Blackhwak.
My problem was the chambers were left rough at the factory.
With maximum loads you could see annular rings on the cases.
The .32-20 is a convertable. .32 H&R Mag. loads that stick in the Blackhawk do not stick in my S&W M-16. None are over published maximum.
There is or was a Tech tip on this board that discussed polishing chambers in Blackhawks. It helps.
