Testing Various .223 Russian Ammo in my POF P-415
 
5 Attachment(s)
I am going to test four different types of two different manufacturers' .223 Russian ammo in my POF P-415 upper. I will test the following ammo:

Wolf 55 grain FMJ, Silver Bear

Silver Bear .223 62grn HP

Wolf Military Classic .223 55grn FMJ

Brown Bear .223 55grn FMJ

I plan on firing 40 rounds of each. Much like wine tasting, I want to make sure that my upper has a "clean pallet" for each flavor of ammo. I want to know what steps I can take between firing each type of ammo to insure a "fresh start", and be able to accurately note/judge each type of ammo. What I'm trying to see is which type of ammo will feed reliably in this POF upper. I had several stuck cases using Tula 62 grain HP.


Thanks!

Hi just thought I'd tell you that my daughter and I went thru over 3,000 rounds of brown bear at a carbine course at Blackwater last year without any fail to feed or other problems. I found wolf to be very dirty shooting. PS beautiful rifle!!

The only thing that Wolf makes that I will use is their primers, and even those tend to leave the primer pocket kind of dirty.

I've shot thousands upon thousands (probably close to a Million lifetime) of Russian manufacture ammo through many different firearms, granted 75% of it was 7.62x39mm out of AK-47s and NEVER had problems other that greater powder fouling than you get from some better made stuff.

I've shot Russian steel in all my pistols, rifles and (obviously not steel, but Russian) shotguns.

I buy American every chance I get, but when it comes to ammo, American manufacturers gotta compete. They do very well in other areas, but not military types. :confused:

I am still waiting for the results video that was removed 2 days ago. The same day, same morning it was posted.
How about OP gives us a written rundown instead?

Right no, ArNoob

I think 100 rounds would leave you a clean palate as long as you ran a chamber brush and bore snake halfway through.

If there was some factor that caused failures, chances are that ot wouldn't show up right away.
