the ammo is combat effective, but you wont win any bull's eye matches with it.

if you want the tightest groups for cheap, hornady's steel match ammo is great

I had a box of this ammo jam in my brand new ar-15 just last week. Some guns will take it, some wont. I guess its the same deal with all firearms/ammo but it seems to happen more with the tula stuff. At least, to my buddies and I. All of our rifles are made by different manufacturers too = /

Weird as I too have the PSA upper... Maybe I got a bad batch? I do not want to risk the case jamming in the chamber again though. I will just have to spend the extra pennies for silver bear.

nah, you are correct to imply that some guns just dont run on it. you could write to PSA just to confirm, maybe you have a tight chamber

if SHTF, ill save you some brass ammo... but you come here to get it lol

Yeah. It shot great with brown bear ammo. I cant imagine that is much higher quality. It certainly does cost much more

Ironically enough, It appeared lacquer coated. I meant to say, it doesnt cost more. its like 10 cents more at my local store over the tula ammo. My rifle eats it up. My buddy's doesnt like that either. He has a crate of federal tracers or something.
