Nice score! My guess is, with a little TLC that's going to be a fine rifle. By all means, a thorough cleaning, Check all things mentioned and if you still have the ejection problem consider different ammo. I have a couple thousand rounds of Federal that won't run in my 10-22 or Ruger 22/45. The only ammo that runs faultlessly in both is CCI. I use the Federal in my 39A and Single Six.
You did real good!

Clean thoroughly, check the buffer and replace if needed. Do more ammo testing before anything else. It may not need anything else, of course as someone mentioned, a new feed throat might eventually be needed

It's likely just gummed up. M60s are much more gummy prone than other brands and for some reason, novice/lazy shooters that don't clean their guns own more Marlins than anything in my experience. My 123456XX serial 60 looked like it was packed with grey oatmeal when I bought it and I got it running 100% with no new parts. Nearly every other 60 I've owned was clogged up when I got them.
