Lifter not positioned to feed next cartridge

My lifter doesn't return to a position high enough to let the next cartridge move into position - first round is fine but next one jams - if I manually nudge the lifter a fraction of an inch, the round feeds properly into position. Tried new lifter but same problem - installed old one again. Maybe bolt is worn but I wouldn't think machined steel would wear before lobe on lifter. I see bolts on ebay for a reasonable amount, maybe try that unless someone has a better suggestion. Thanks.
