Considering trying some S&B .223 for my ar because it does well in my ak. Have read that it will have blown primers sometimes. What is it and how dangerous is a blown primer. Thank you.

The term "blown primer" refers to the primer coming out of the case after fireing. The biggest problem I have seen from it happening is it can jam up your rifle.

It can also allow hot gases to impinge on the bolt face, firing pin, chamber, and other parts causing burning and pitting. Wouldn't want it to occure on a regular basis.

A blown primer isn't dangerous...it's a very content relaxed primer. It's a primer that HASN'T been blown in a while that you have to watch out for.

Blown primers pop out of the fired case, lodge between the bolt carrier and the inside of the upper receiver, and make you ruin your CAR stock by banging it on the ground, trying to clear the resulting jam. It also leads to a lot of swearing, at least in my experience.

I had one fall down into my lower. It worked it's way under the triger and jamed it up. Took me a while to figure out what had happened.

Please make sure you keep your face clear of the muzzle when trying this at home kids.

Actually, it can get worse. Much worse. [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=118&t=171710[/url] Edited to say: Crap, that always happens when I don't read the whole thread. [:P]
