Put 75 rounds through a new 1178 Rem. with 3 stuck shells. Seems they didn't extract and the bolt gets stuck. Have to pull the bbl to unlock it. WW Rem 2-3/4 heavy dove loads. Wondering if it is an ammo or extractor problem. I looked at the rim and didn't see anything wrong, have seen same problem in 870 when the rim is bent. My mossberg and beretta just keep going without problems, same ammo.

clean it and lightly lube the places that need it and shoot it some more,it may need to be broken in. tho my two rem 1187,s ran from the get go. but my short turkey barrel will not run low brass shells and is advertized as not doing that. eastbank.

is it a supermagnum 3.5"? i know mine wont cycle light loads like 7/8oz and 1oz shot. 1 1/8oz does ok but 1 1/4 or heavier is the sweet spot

Barrel length? All 11-87's with barrels shorter than 26" are not designed for anything but magnum loads. They might cycle the heavy field loads most of the time. They won't handle the very light dove loads at all.
