Yes and no.

They will function new, but you may have a few stovepipes (when I had these I believe they were more of a function of a poor extractor) and FTF stoppages.

Best thing is to load them fully and leave them for a few days.  Some here have suggested spraying the insides with some dry lubricant, if you wish to use them sooner.

Have fun,

Michael

I just took a couple of new ones to the range last week.  I was less than happy with them at first, many, many stovepipes.  I went back to my Ruger ten rounders and still had one or two so I suspected the rifle or ammo (Federal bulk pack).  I put a drop of CLP on the bolt moving parts, including the extractor and by the end of the bulk pack I could dump all 25 with maybe one stovepipe per mag.  Took the rifle home and cleaned it and am going to try another brand of ammo.  I hear good things about the Winchester Wildcat (replaced the Dynapoint).

you need to let them sit full of ammo at LEAST overnight before you use them. this will fix the stovepiping problem.
