    What ammo are you shooting out of it ?? More specifically jacketed or lead hollowpoints ??

    My guess is the extractor or extractors are probably worn and us not holding the spent cartridge long enough for it to get back to the ejector so that it can be properly ejected.

    I'd pipe in, but I have no idea what a JC Higgins model 30 is....

    Well, if we could rule out the ammo first, then I would ascribe to sbower's theory.
