It works fine. At my shooting zone the place is littered with the stuff.

I bought a 20 round box just for grins at the gun show last weekend. I have not shot it yet.

Didn't work so good in my wife's M4gery.

She shot over 300 rounds of it and two broke off in the chamber. Pulling the bolt open dumped powder all over me and all over the ground, dropping a cleaning rod down the barrel and the projectile would come out with a piece of the case neck attached to it. I sent in the upper for testing by them and they shot about 400 rounds of it and said they didn't encounter any problems. They did replace the case and I shot a little of it, in my M4gery. None of got stuck but it was considerablly weaker than Q3131a and wouldn't cycle in my M4gery using a PRI fatboy gas tube. Some of the case necks were cracking but didn't cause any to completely break off. I'm giving the rest of it to my dad for use in his Rem 700 Varmint Special.

I had a similar experience as gotm4, except mine almost blew up my gun.



Plastic ammo is a bad idea
