... but I had my first failure to extract with my S&W/Daniel Defense build. Over the last month or so I'd gone pretty close to 500 rounds of steel case without cleaning and had been noticing the spent cases were looking real crappy so it wasn't a big surprise. I had to kick out the stuck case with a cleaning rod, then twirled around the chamber brush and finished shooting with no other incident. Anyway my DD is no longer 100%! So now I'm not gonna have a "filthy 14" myself and will do a little more cleaning now. Not a big deal, I just wanted to know. Also my ArmaLite is kicking out cases that look just as crappy though it still never has had a malfunction. But I'm going to clean both ARs well tomorrow. I'm sure both would have gone a lot longer using brass cased ammo but at the price of steel case I'll continue using it for the bulk of my shooting. ETA: Also took my 1913 Luger and put 100 rounds of Federal Champion through it. Not one malf! My buddy who never shot a Luger before couldn't believe it, almost 99 years old and still functioning like a new gun. (It's a mixed numbers gun so no collector's item.) And we fired my Glock 23 a little, my Taurus MillPro 9mm with no malfs. My buddy had more trouble, his Ruger P345 was having magazine problems and not picking up the next round very well. Happened on two mags so not sure what was going on. We also fired his Ruger 22/45 and it's a great little pistol. All in all a fun day and we came back too tired to clean guns. Watched Full Metal Jacket and drank beer instead!
