If your Krieghoff has a rough finish in the chambers the added friction could cause a round to stick. This wouldn't be as apparent in an unfired round or a snapcap as the round has not expanded due to the firing of the round. Thus your shotgun would function well on "dry runs" but might mis-eject on fired casings.

Was the fault only with one brand/type/box of cartridges? A box/case of cartridges with slightly oversized casings might also be a culprit.

Of course I am likely wrong on either count. In the picture posted in the aforementioned post it appears as though both extractors have gone through their full range of motion which would eliminate a mechanical failure.

Hope it all works out,
