Don't think so... I've spun the pedals that many times trying to figure out the problem and haven't noticed.... Plus it's a brand new chain....

No bends in the chainring, Oli thanks. It's a SRAM 971 with a missing link thingy.

wiggle each link, looking for tight spot (but I've found chain with tight link will skip without load too)

Chainring?

can you check your old chain length or swap chainrings for a goodie, could tell you you have a worn chainring.

305mm point to point is new, I can't tell you the guru details, but a few mm over won't help.
