I have a Bushmaster XM15 E2S . I just purchased it a few weeks ago.The day I brought it home I had a jam which I cleared.I was firing 5.56 and the bullet case from the jam was missing the primer!! Should I not use this ammo any longer? The box is labled with a date I think thats 1981.
The bullet had fired......the jam was just with the case.Thanks Shane 22three

make sure you disassemlby you upper/lower and make sure that primer isnt floating around inside.

We need to have more info on the ammo.

Manufacturer and/or headstamp marks on the bottoms of the rounds, and Lot Number if showing on a box, would help.

5.56MM Ball M193 14 Sep 1981 LOT 27 Mal 9-81 made in Malaysia all this indformation was on the white box of 20 rounds.I have since cleaned the weapon and there was no primer that I saw.Perhaps it fell out when I cleaned it. I fired alot of 5.56 in the Army in the early to mid 80s and I never saw that one happen! Thanks for any info!! Shane 22three

What sort of "jam" was this a failure to eject, failure to extract, or ??
