I can load 5 in the tube and one out of the 5 will drop out the bottom while I rake the slide (forgive me if that isn't the correct term). I thought maybe I wasn't pulling back on the slide hard/far enough but it doesn't matter. Here is a pic I took after I had a jam. When I loaded one shell in the tube to shoot it, it took me 5 or 6 times to get it to feed! It just kept falling out of the bottom.

Are you sure you have the shell completely in the magazine where the shell stop is holding the rim? I have seen people leave the last shell rim against the elevator and when the gun is fired, that shell drops to the ground.

Has this happened since you purchased the shotgun or after you have taken it apart for cleaning?

Try not pumping the pump action shotgun at the speed of slow.

Yes, 100%. I even push it past the shell stop. Plus it goes like this... a couple will feed fine then all of the sudden one will fall. Sometimes it happens as I'm going forward with the slide one will fall as the other is loaded.

I have not taken it apart yet.

I also tried this, going fast. Still happens.

The lip of the shell stop may be too short and the shells are making it past it or it is sticking open. I would take it apart and check for heavy grease deposits, burrs, etc. Pretty simple mechanics so not much could be going wrong.

If the lip of the shell stop is too low how could I fix this? I think this possibly could be it.

No one?

First, verify that is the problem.

Load it carefully and visually check, then see if the problem occurs.

On my 590, the last shell is sometimes pretty hard to get hooked in there. It varies by load type.

+1 to the above.
First, I would strip it per the manual and clean it. There might be some sort of debris under the shell stop that's causing marginal engagement with the shell rim. Also, the shell stop and interrupter are stamped parts. The edges are never smooth (nor do they need to be), but if you have an especially large burr or something, it could be causing a hangup.
This should end up being an easy fix.
