tongue and groove subfloor

In the process of laying down a subfloor using tongue and groove. On several of the pieces I have had a hard time getting them to lock in. There is about a .16" gap from the pieces being totally lock. Could this be a problem? I am using 23/32 tongue and groove, span is .16 oc, screwing and glueing.

You sometimes have to use a hammer to persuade the T&G material to totally lock together. Use either a piece of 2"x4" or a scrap piece of the T&G as a buffer so you don't flatten out the groove where you're smacking it into place.
