I took my Greek return to the range today for the first time and put a bunch of the Greek ammo through it. It ran great, not one problem. I did notice something interesting though, most of the brass had a small flattened spot on the side of the neck. Has anyone noticed this as well? What causes this?

I hadn't noticed this on my M1A but I really wasn't paying close attention.

That is caused by the op rod wacking the neck and that throws the brass out to the right front.. this is normal and nothing to worry about.

I'm glad to know it too, because mine does the same exact thingand wasn't sure what the deal was. Thank you. Are you the same HighPowerShooter as on Battlerifles.com?
