03, this thread is now 14 years old. I haven't even seen those guys around.AK47
I would highly advise not to use them in an AR Rifle. I was dealing with a Police Department this week about the gun blowing Primers out. It had me puzzled for a while until did some research and got a possibility for the issue with a tech at Hornady.
The Head Space was OK on the Rifle as well as the Throat Erosion. Next we addressed the possibility of ammunition. Which is always a consideration. But the same ammunition was working fine in other rifles. Come to find out the Rifle had not been properly cleaned for a long time regarding the the Chamber Throat area in the Free Bore Area where the Riflings start. And jacket material had been building up at the start of the Riflings over time. So when the Round went into Battery in the Chamber area it had a lot of pressure and resistance created when the bullet started down the Bore. This is a very rare problem because most people do a good job of keeping that area of the Rifles Bore clean. So what I am saying besides being exceptionally dirty it would be much easier for the Lead to also build up in that area causing pressure. Not only push the bullet out the Bore but excessive pressure to the rear. All this said to tell you I would highly not recommend shooting Cast Lead Bullets in the AR 15 Rifles.
I think its the new software. It makes recommendations based on keywords. I don't think there is anything mods can do about it.I never looked! What are they still doing on here for more that a year or two anyway
It is kind of like the Fore Sale Section here on the Forum. Items that I am sure have been sold, traded or what ever years before! I have brought this to the attention of a couple of the Moderators recently. I still have a Rock River Varmint Rifle listed for sale after all this time! It seems to me that Threads that are 14 years old falls into the same category!
However it is my fault I never looked at the date!
I guess it provides an excellent tool for a government to keep track of all we have, talk about and our activities?
What a treasure trove that would be for a Tyrannical Anti Second Amendment and Anti-Gun Government.
