Did some shooting this PM and my Gold Cup failed to go into battery a time or 2. My load was 5.0 of 231 and a 200 gr swc. Is this a functin of the recoil spring or a bad round? Thanks.

Perhaps it's your taper crimp.

Take out your barrel and use it for a go/nogo guage. Drop your reloads in the chamber one by one and see if they drop in freely or if a few hang up.

In a gun that has been running perfectly before I would suspect the ammo.

If your Gold Cup has been running and now its a little sluggish and acting up do a real good cleaning in the chamber. Using lead bullets can produce a little build up in the chamber right at the shoulder. You may have some lead/lube packed in there.

Also the taper crimp is critical as already stated. Then it may be time for a new recoil spring if its been a while and a lot of rounds since the last one.
