Default Ejecting enblocs

Took my 5 mil SA to the range today for some exercise. I have already fired about 750 rounds through this rifle, mostly Greek, and some Lake City.
I was using enblocs from bandoleers loaded in Greece. The lot is 1969.
I fired about 8 clips, and at least three of the spent enblocs did not eject after the eighth round was fired and ejected. The oprod cycled fully , but the clip just sat there. I had to press the clip release to eject it. I notice that the finish on these clips is very rough. I have no trouble with my other clips, mostly SA and Borg Warner clips. Those are smooth; I tumbled them last year, and smoothed them nicely.
My question is- has anybody else had similar issues with these Greek enblocs?

Yes, stick with your SA and BRW clips. I use all AGE-1's in practice and competition, but I would not hesitate to use your SA's or BRW's. Just strip the Greek ammo from the JMO clips and reload it into your good ones.

We see this all the time. Guys go straight into competition with clips they have never tried in their rifles. The firing line at Camp Perry is a heck of a place to find a bad vlip.
