    Yeah, my bushmaster actually VOIDS the warranty if I use steel case.
    Warranty's LONG out of date though.
    Am I blessed or possessed?

    -Sometimes I feel the heavy hammer spring may add some resistance to the lockback resulting in failures to feed in rifles with marginal ignition. Might consider lighter buffer springs for some rifles.


    -Fired 200 rds through my LWRC today using Lancer , Troy, MSAR and H&K Mags.
    Zero failures of any kind..... that is now 300 + rds though that rifle with no failures of any kind with this golden tiger ammo.

    Fired another 120 though thru 2 other rifles that did only have a firing pin upgrade had 3 failures to fire total but also some feed issues that I suspect may be due to marginal ignition in the absence of spring uprgade.

    So in summary it seems that the combination of Firing pin upgrade and spring upgrade produces near 100% reliability in most rifles.

    I found another another thing also:

    When comparing the Xtreme precision firing pin (of which I now have a bunch) with the RedXarms upgraded FP, I noticed the RedX was much more aggressive in adding length.

    But even more interesting when comparing I pushed them thru different bolts and noticed different bolts produce different degree of protrusion due to varing lenght between bolts (!)

    That means production variances between bolts exist enough to affect firing pin protrusion and impact in thru the face of the bolt.


    I am aware of one rifle having had 2 failures among 120 rds and weird ejection patterns when firing with either just spring upgrade or spring + hammer...I might look for the bolt being a culprit here ...

    Anyhow... it seems the ammo while not perfect in all rifles is suitable for use when adding hammer and firing pin upgrades...

    That's a lot of good analysis, Fred. Thanks for reporting on it.
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    Update:

    The as-is stuff with the 5.45mm style primers is sold out.

    The round itself is sold again with regular primers for 22 cents a round at SGAmmo.
    For that no upgraded FP and Hammer Spring needed
