I was cleaning my rifle today and I noticed that in front of the gas block on the barrel that there was a ring of exhaust leak all the way around the barrel about 1/8" wide in front of the gas block. It stood out very clearly because I have a stainless barrel. Is this normal or not?? The reason I'm asking is because the last time I was at the range every once in awhile the rifle would not chamber the next round after shooting. I could pop off about 20 rds and then the next 4 wouldnt chamber correctly. If I pulled back on the charge handle it would load them manually. It is a brand new DPMS upper. Or am I just having problems until everything wears in since the upper is new?? I do have everything lubed up decently with CLP. Today I gave it a really good cleaning with brake clean and relubed everything that moves. Any information would be a great help.
