I am sorry to hear that Bilt, particularly because I have 500 rds of steel case fodder. Brass NATO rds in Battle packs were not much better but I am old enough to know any mass produced item can produce a lemon or two and a 16" LT Wt barrels heat up in a hurry.
I may yet find the right load the rifle loves n the barrel harmonics produce good to excellent accuracy.
. God willing, it will not be the most expensive load on the market.
