No problem, I have had good luck purchasing USGI en blocs from forum members here. Reach out to members here in the Want To Buy Threads and I am sure that members will hook you up with what you need.

HTH.

Have also used the AEC's and found the park to be a bit rough/thick.
If you have a tumbler for reloading throw them in there to smooth out the park.
No tumbler, apply some gun oil...remoil,clp..and smooth the outside and inside of the clip with 0000 steel wool and wipe off any excess oil.
Give this a try before spending any money on USGI clip....you got nothing to lose.

Tried it and the PPU rounds just bulge and will not seat properly. A weird problem. I have one USGI clip and they fit correctly.

What are the markings on the clips that don't work for you with PPU ball?

When you say bulge, do they not appear set correctly in enbloc? Such as after loading they arent perfectly staggered?

I also have AEC 3 clips. I just bought 540 PPU rounds. I loaded 2 enblocs so far, they are staggered in clip perfectly with no play or rattle. I have a couple clips loaded with the American Eagle M1 amd am getting bulging issues and play in clip.

I havent fired the PPU yet.

I found that if a wrack the loaded rounds by squeezing and working the two rows against each other, that there will be a "click", and then the rounds will be seated properly.

I just loaded a bunch of PPU today in AEC 3 clips. After loading I found that if you face the clip toward with rounds vertically up and down (where you can see 2 rows of 4 up and down) and press on the opposite side of each row with opposite force, you can get them to snap into place pretty quickly. As for cycling issues, haven't shot them yet. Will find out on Friday.
