I would load a round in and take it right back out without cycling the lever. Push forward on the lip of the cartridge when it is loaded and then depress the "gate" (Loading spring) and the round will come right back out. My 2006 loved to scratch brass for the first few hundred rounds I shot through it. Hope you figure it out.

Hey there S -- Might check for a killer burr on the inside of the radius of the loading port. Drag a Q-Tip back out and see if it leaves a wad or is bald! If you're careful, you can remove it with a jewelers half round or round file, without removing the loading spring. Let us know what you find. Best regards. Wind
I did as recommended and found a burr there, also a little one on the door. I removed it with a file and polished it with very fine sand paper, the brass looks much better now. Thank you.

I'd guess the loading port too. Mine was so sharp it'd scrape a bit of fingernail each time I loaded it. I rounded it off & now it's a lot better.
