I could be wrong... but you might have two problems versus just a magazine issue.

Regarding the slide not going into battery fully. If this was surplus ammo, some cartridges have a size problem and or the chamber needs cleaning.

Either way; the easiest way other than a big freaking hammer to get it out of battery is small screwdrivers to work the ejector so it's not engaging the brass, it's a whole lot safer than forcing it into battery.

If it's the ammo, there was a post a while ago about doing the spin test. Take the barrel out of the pistol and sort your ammo. They either chamber or they don't. If you reload, they can be sized to work properly.

The feed lip on the follower "could have" been bent when you forced it into battery if the next round was out of place in the magazine.

Just food for thought.
