I have had the same problem. I have a Colt Officer's model and run into fialure to feeds once I get around the 70 or 80 round mark. The spent round never clears the barrel and the new round is jamed against it. Its relaly a blast to try and clear this jam since it takes two hands and some strong fingers. Does anyone know the cause/solution. also, regaridng the ejected shells hitting you in the head, I ave no problem iwth this, but when my wife shoit my 1911 a few went over her head as well. Not saying you shoot like a girl, but I will check her grip next time and see if there is some common denominator.
