You did not tie into a MWBC that was not adequetly marked/installed did you.

Maybe you have a leakage in your circuit.....

If you know the circuit... I'd go to the first recep and disconnect the remaining downstream......

then try the GFI....

If it holds, its pretty definitive that you have a downstream problem.

If it trips, it is not definitive of the problem as there could be a leakage between the breaker and first recep.

GFI receps and breakers are subject to failure... and you may think you have a new breaker, but if bought from a BigBox, people do return old or broken material that gets back on the shelf.
