What causes this?

I have Ruger SR9 full size pistol. I love to shoot it. The problem is that when I use Winchester target ammo, I shoot the bulk box from Walmart, out of 100 rounds, I will get 5-8 failure to ejects. I have shot over 1000 rounds of bulk Federal and over 250 rounds of Remmington bulk ammo and over 100 rounds of Remmington hollow points and not one single fte or ftf. I have a pisture of one of the fte cases if I can figure out how to post them from my phone. I dont know why its only with Wichester. . I dont know if anyone can tell by the pictures. Some strange horizontal marks, could have been made by the feed ramp. Thanks for any comments. This gun has been flawless with anything but winchester.

Are the cases bulged? Looks like it but maybe it's an illusion. If so, send it back to Ruger for repair.

I dont think so, its just the picture. The Winchester ammo is the ONLY AMMO this happens with. The gun has jammed about 15 times in over 1300 rounds, and it was only with Winchester brand ammo or reloads, I could see the problem with the reloads when that happened, they were bulged a bit. Guess Ill just stay away from Winchester.

FTE only with Winchester Target Ammo . Are they weaker than other ammo ?
Group size is nothing if you did not hit what you aim at.

Some guns don't like Win. White box. Use another brand ammo. Some shotguns won't work with Win. Walmart shot shells. Buy Fed.
