slide jamed

Went to the range today with my 1911 and was shooting 230 Gr RN lead over 4 GR Bullseye and had shot 87 rounds when the slide locked up to the rear, it was not back far enough to engage the slide lock and could not be moved in either direction. I tried tapping the slide on the bench but it would not move. Packed up and went home got a rubber mallet and gave it a good solid whack to release it. Field striped and cleaned the gun oiled it up and reassembled the gun thinking that maybe it was just dirty, racked the slide and it stuck in the same place, but I was able to just hit with my hand and free it up. I am totally frustrated! Any one have any ideas?
Thanks Steve

Field strip the pistol again. Put the slide back on with no barrel, bushing or recoil system bits. Manipulate the slide back and forth. If the slide goes back and forth freely; I would think the bushing and the barrel no longer play well together. Look for an anomaly in the OD of your barrel. It may also appear as an anomaly in the interior of your barrel such as a dark ring.
