From reading your other posts I could tell. So do I. I like it. Sounds like you do as well.

Do you have calipers to be able to measure the problematic rounds in question? I would like to see what's going on as I have never heard of this happening before.

Good money. My dad had a ex Seal friend who did off shore under water welding on rigs and various other things. Very good money.

My AR will shoot brass or lacquered steel just fine. My take is there are shooters out there with the .223 barrels who are having fits with their guns, and blaming it on the ammo.
I have heard the same thing. My AR is chambered to 5.56 but I buy 2.23 cause it's easier to come by and cheaper!
