Factory ammo has had more issues than reloads for me. Every brand, weight, and style bullet have been tried. PMC, Remington, WWB, S&B, Browning, Blazer, CCI, Fiocchi, and others.

 

The only stuff I haven't tried are steel or aluminum case. Maybe I should try them. 

 

Plus the reloads I use run in every other gun I own, and they run in other's guns as well, all without issues. Even personal reloads with new brass and different powders have similar results.

 

Same for the magazines,  Glock, Magpul, ETS, SGM, 17-32 round, and no rhyme or reason.

Did some grinding, bending, and polishing today. 

 

Setting up a super high speed camera to film the action and see if something can be caught on film. 

 

 

you'd be in the extreme minority

No, bad description on my part. 0% failure.

 

98%, or GM was the score.

 

Nothing close to a failure. All 115 grain fmj SAAMI reloads from 17 round OEM Glock mags. Threw the casings 8-12 feet on average.

 

Before the match...

Bent the ejector up until touching the bottom of the bolt.

Polished and filed the extractor on outside edge, top, bottom, and especially the face under the hook.

Sanded the groove where the extractor sits.

Rounded the edges of the bolt where the ejector rubs on the bolt.

Cleaned the receiver guts and ran the gun dry.

Used a dental pick to make sure no debris was on the bolt face where the cartridge sits.

Polished the feed ramp.

Cleaned each mag before the match, but not during.

No gun malfunctions. 219 rounds.

 

400 round match today. Eight 50 round average, 30ish second stages today. The goal is 0% failure for the match. I haven't done a thing to the gun between matches. I didn't even wipe the gun or mags down after finishing shooting today. Just flagged and bagged.

Still evaluating the results. Sunday's match didn't go as well. Had 2 FTE issues, but it was 435 rounds fired. 0.5% +/-

 

I did not do anything with the gun between the SCSA match and the hi round count match, so 2 FTE over approximately 650 rounds using the same reloaded ammo I always do.

 

There was one thing I noticed in addition to the ejector height in relation to the bolt. The ejector is metal and actually slides on to the magazine adapter. There is about 1/64" top to bottom play in the fit. I'm going to try beveling the "crack" on the bolt where the ejector rubs a little more to lessen the chance of the ejector catching on the bolt. That would allow the ejector to rub on the bolt a little harder. Just seeing how far I can push the performance the other way.

 

All in all much better performance. The failure rate was probably as good as any other pcc/reloaded ammo combination.

Both those dudes were on my squad at the International Revolver Championship a few weeks ago. They're awesome shooters.

 

I'm also willing to bet their carbines are, ah, somewhat less than stock...
