One issue with a S&W 617

I have lusted for one of these for a while, and finally got one. It shoots good, but it has one problem unfired rounds are backing out and binding cylinder rotation. Anyone else had this problem. One thing I really like about it is it will shoot that 60gr. Aguila sub sonic load without keyholing. I want to use this for quiet pest elimination.

I've never had the problem of the cylinder binding. The only problem I've had was misfires in double action mode. Sent it back to Smith & Wesson. Then I ran 500 rounds of several different brands of ammo through it with 1 misfire double action. I guess I can live with that since it was a cheapo Remington Thunderbolt that misfired.
