Anyone ever shot MFS http://www.ableammo.com/catalog/ruag-ammotec-rifle-cartridge-20020-remington-full-metal-jacket-rdbx-rdbx-p-120549.html? If so does it do better than Silver Bear or Brown Bear?

I haven't tried shooting anything more precise than minute-of-pie-plate so I can't vouch for accuracy, but for plinking the MFS 7.62x39 is the most reliable com-bloc ammo I've ever shot through my AR's. Every single round has gone bang, while I still get FTF problems with Wolf. Seems to be less dirty than Wolf as well.

Friend of mine ran a carbine course with it. It went bang and went where he pointed it. I ran PMC, should have run MFS, just for $$$ factor.

I've shot quite a lot of it; its the exact same as Silver Bear - because it comes from the same place (Barnaul). It is just re-branded. MFS does put out other ammo too from different factories, but the steel case line is made in Barnaul.

Just tossing this out there - first thing I do on any combloc rifle I get is replace the firing pin with a new one, and the recoil spring with a wolff xp. Makes a world of difference in FTFs, even with the crappiest ammo.

What firing pin do you change it out to?

Same type of pin, just a new one. Mostly been using NOS east german firing pins. I haven't come across many combloc rifles in which both the firing pin and recoil spring weren't considerably worn.

Wish I'd known that; $25 cheaper today for MFS than the Silverbear case I bought. D'oh!
