reverse gear grinding

Hi all new to the forum. I recently bought a 2013 jeep wrangler rubicon 10a 6 speed. whenever I put it in reverse sometimes I don't have it all the way and 3 times I have ground the reverse gear. Not hard I wasn't pushing the gear shifter anywhere it just made a wirling sound. As soon as I heard it I hit the clutch and shifted to nuetral. I have only had the jeep for 5 days So I'm still getting used to it. My queston is is it likely that I did any damage to the reverse gear? I haven't ground any other gear it just feels like I don't always put reverse fully in gear. Thank you for the help and patience with a newbie.

No real harm. Try grinding reverse gears at 60 mph! I find it very easy to hit reverse when shifting from 5th to 6th. Maybe my shifter needs adjusting? I've been driving a stick for over 40 years. This tranny is terrible!

I've hit reverse at high speed several times. Talk about a grinding sound!

Now I let the shifter "flop" into the neutral position then move it to 6th. I can feel the "wall" when I shift it that way.
