It sounds like you might have a loose belt. That can cause circles to come out of round. When you look at the model on your build plate, if it goes oblong from right to left, try tightening the x-axis belt. If it's oblong front to back, try tightening your y-axis belt.

Try setting your gap on your thumbscrews to 5mm with filament loaded into the toolhead. It also sounds like heat creep as b-morgan says. Also, after this happens are you making sure to clean any residual filament out of the teeth on the hobbed bolt?
What brand/type of filament are you using, and also the temperature on the hotend? Is it cutting out a bite mark in the filament when you unload it? Also, what toolhead are you using?
