kmc X10SL on SRAM?

Anyone have experience with KMC X10sl chain on SRAM red? I'm trying it and having strange issues. It runs smoothly except that on the 13 cog (3rd smallest on an 11-26 cassette) it skips like crazy under load (while on either the big or small chain ring). On the 11-26 the 13 cog is the smallest on the 1 piece cone. Runs fine on 14, 12, 11, and remainder cogs under any load. Any ideas on what the problem is?

I run the same setup and have no problems with it. If all the parts are relatively new, and the derailleur is adjusted properly, it could be your derailleur hanger is a bit out of alignment.

Could there be a problem with that cassette sprocket? Perhaps a chip, bend, or additional piece of something?
