Are you inverting your gun trying to chamber a round? If so it won't work. Are you using reloads? Anything over 2.55OAL probably won't work either. Sorry, need a little more info what your doing.

Is it hanging up in the chamber? Or it the rim having a hard time slipping underneath the extractor?
Try getting it to jam, ease off the lever, and then gently lift up and try and slide the cartridge underneath the extractor. f thats the case you might have to tweak the extractor.

To me your pictures look like a tight extractor is stopping the cartridge rim from fully seating on to the bolt during the feeding phase. Pull up on the extractor to relieve som tension and I believe you gun will start feeding properly.
