Jim,

I wouldn't recommend shooting a steady diet of Velocitors, Stingers, or Hyper-V segmented rounds. Any of these produce too much impulse energy against the semi-auto bolt.

I would recommend this IF considering modifying the bolt to end the binding. But since it's the receiver that's the problem and not the Kidd bolt, I'd sharpie up the receiver in the area of the bind...

At least one person determined the "wheel", as designed, was responsible for his "last round flyer" problem. The "reinvented/redesigned wheel" fixed it.

Back was meant from the shooter perspective. You are of course correct from the muzzle perspective. (muzzle is normally considered the front)

You already eliminated the main and FP springs as possible causes. A weak recoil spring that doesn't hold the slide firmly closed is another one.

The most likely cause is a dirty chamber. If you...

I'm not a crown expert by any stretch, but it seems to me that propulsion gasses would push the tail of the exiting bullet unevenly if the crown is not even. That would induce a wobble in the bullet...
