.410 xlr loading issues

Just bought new marlin .410 xlr yesterday, beautiful gun. Loaded four winny 1/4 oz slugs and wont feed into the chamber at all. Its like the extractor is way too tight, not even making contact and the slugs just lay flat ??? Had a similar problem with my 1895gs .45-70 and found info on bending the extractor, worked perfect for the guide gun!! Would you fine gentlemen know of any similar issues or your .410s? Thank you!

Well turns out the guy who sold me the gun threw in the ammo for free so I didnt think anything about it but he gave me 3" shells ::), wow I feel stupid now! Mistakes happen I guess, still have to work in the extractor tho.
Does it only take 2 1/2" shells?
yes you are correct. I had some nice shells ordered online(2-1/2) and waiting, but got free ammo from the dealer, very nice guy. He threw in some ammo with the gun. I didnt think twice about the shells probably because I was amazed to the quality of the gun :)
I'm glad to hear that.
I just bought a 410 XLR & a 410 Lever Action from Cabelas (blued & walnut).

Don't have them in hand yet.............................
