    I recently started having an issue with my PTR91. I tried everything of which I could think to solve the problem, but I just could not figure out what it was. Well, I figured out today that it's the ammo listed above. I had several mags of it, and all malfunctioned. The mags of other brands worked flawlessly.

    Now, in trying to figure out what about this ammo is the problem, I noticed that they aren't quite as loud as the other stuff. So I'm assuming that it's just not powerful enough to cycle completely. Does this sound right to you all? The chamber has been cleaned like mad, so I don't believe the flutes are too dirty to allow it to eject.

    My buddy's M1A cycles it fine, but he said it does not produce very good accuracy. It does noticeably better with South African surplus.

    Unfortunately, I bought a TON of it because it was all that was available (last winter). LOL... Oh well.

    Hey, at least it's reloadable!

    I haven't used any of it thru an PTR91, but this fodder runs fine thru several different M1A rifles sporting different barrel length profiles, as well as a few M14S builds using Chicom receivers.

    The CBC functioned fine through all of them. ( Not a real surprise, as the M1A/M14 will typically cycle pretty much anything.)

    In terms of consistency, CBC left a lot to be desired. None of our rifles liked it all that much in terms of accuracy.

    FWIW...... this ammo dumps hogs just fine in the brush, and it's boxer primed to facilitate reloading the empty brass afterwards.

    Note: The PTR website had a list of various loads that the company does not recommend for use through the PTR91;s....... so the CBC fodder may fall into this category as well.
