Your statement "When it sticks the bullet gets dented on the tip by the feed ramp" makes me think its the ammo,. I shoot a lot of 9mm and never noticed a FMJ round dent from hitting the ramp.
There are some who will disagree but I find some guns need to break in. I usually run at least 500 rounds through an auto to ID any issues and it also gives me confidence in the gun.
What I would do:
Get some decent 124 FMJ and try that. I have read that some of the newest compact 9s are not reliable with light weight, 115 gr., 9mm rounds. Small guns use stronger recoil springs and they are set up to use full power or duty ammo as opposed to practice or range ammo. I have not experienced that problem but it could be an issue with your gun.
Usually if an auto does not function properly it is an issue with the magazine. If you have the same problem with the 124 FMJ then call the company and ask for new mags.
I like IWB holsters for small autos. I just purchased a Vedder for a small auto I have. It is Kydek. I am impressed with it. It was not cheap but it is worth the money. There are similar holsters out there that may be cheaper. They do make OWB for most guns.
I also have Galco, Bianchi and Safariland leather holsters and would recommend them. I would not recommend something like a foam Uncle Mike's holster for everyday carry.
