Just pulled down 100 rnds and the reason for inaccuracy is quite evident. Not sure what the power is but load varied almost 4 gr, from 37.9 to 41.8 with the majority around 41.4.

Hornady puller does a nice clean job for my purposes.

Worked on breaking down 600 rnds of this junk today. Great way to spend a couple of hours.





Separated out a few of the different head stamps.

I had two boxes of it and the first box I didn’t have any trouble. I was even reloading the cases from it. But the second box I had to pull them all. I loaded some of the cases up from the second box to see if it was the powder they using with different powder, but I still had trouble. The cases are not any good just the bullets.

Default Split cases in a bolt action gun

When you have a split or ruptured case in a bolt action gun, is it as much of an issue as in a semi auto gun?

I had a batch of factory remanufactured 308 that had split cases. Blew out a magazine in my M1a and a mag in my DSA FAL before I realized what was going on. In my small sample, it was like a 4-5% failure rate.

I have a Remington 700 bolt gun I could use those in. Does that rifle safely deal with Venting ruptured cases?

Default Happened to me today

Was looking on line to see if anyone else had had issues with this Ammo and stumbled on this thread. Previously I had noticed flat primers when shooting this through my Navy Garand, but it was fine in my M1A. After being gone for 3 years in Japan I got home and fired off 7 rounds in the M1A. Smoke to the face, mag guts blown out, and soot in the remaining rounds in the mag and the action. Found the casing and it also had case separation right above the web. The crappy part is a donít have any other 7.62 Ammo. Guess Iíll switch over to M1 carbine till Ammo becomes available again.

That's what some 95-99.9% of the "once fired" 7.62mm NATO brass is - from an MG.

What rifle is in use that will generate thousands of brass casings in 7.62mm?? 5.56mm I can see, but not 7.62mm. Those are nearly all from MGs.
