    Is it all the same ammo or different types?

    Either way man, good luck and keep us posted.
    On the bright side, "somebody" here must be right.
    :D

    wolf, tula, yugo mil surp, and some silver bear. I don't want to get anything more expensive because, well, its too expensive. The first few thousand rounds were a mixed bag of steel cased ammo.

    Great. This way you'll be removing ammo out of the equation if testing various brands and still having the same issues.

    You can rule out the magazines by testing without one. If it extracts and ejects when single loading, look to make sure you don't have excessive bolt drag. Pretty rare in a gun with this many rounds downrange, unless fire control parts have been changed.

    So what's the deal Tyler?
    Did you get your testing done or no?

    I went out yesterday and it wasn't a magazine problem. I think that when the finish started to strip it clogged the gas block. The reason why I believe this is because when I first took it out and started shooting it, it was only ejecting barely with a lot of failure to extracts. I went through 350 rounds and slowly but surely the more I shot (regardless of the mag) it started to function properly. It went from every other shot being a FTE to hardly any FTE towards the end. Any thoughts?
