Trip #5
« on: September 18, 2009, 12:01:00 PM »
No pics, camera battery ran dry, sorry. :(
The wind was blowing directly at me from the front, and I can only take getting powder residue back in the face for so long, so this one was cut short. target at 10 yards, various handloads, everything worked just fine. Groups were nothing to write home about, but I think the combo of the wind and residue in the face was throwing me off. I will say I finally had a failure to feed, with a factory Remington 115gr JHP of all things. Quickly cleared jam, and back in action. This was after 110 rounds of various and sundry stuff, inlsuding a bunch of lead reloads, so that might have something to do with it. All the other stuff, and some of it was oddball I used to TRY to get it to jam, all that worked just fine, go figure. :-\ The jammed round was loaded into another magazine, and worked just fine. ;D
So now another 115 rounds, total of 538, with one failure not attributable to ammo. Not bad at all. No issues with the bulge, and at the range mags dropped free without incident.
I think this one will eventually be a real winner for CZ-UB/CZ-USA! 8)
