Problem with Franchi 48 AL or ammo?

I recently purchased a Franchi 48 AL in 28 gauge and have been shooting it for a couple of weeks with different loads. One of the loads is the Fiocchi 3/4 oz. high velocity load. With this load, I am getting brass bulging on the face of the hull. It looks like the brass is flowing into the ejector cut out on the bolt face. I also tried the Fiocchi Golden Pheasant load and Polywad's 28 spreader load with the same result. The only load I've tried that did not do this was Winchester's 1 oz. Super X load. The gun functions fine with all of these loads, however the bulging brass must be a sign of high pressure. Also, I don't think I'll be able to reload any of these hulls. Is this a problem with the gun or ammo? Anyone else have this problem with this shotgun? Thanks in advance.
