went to the range today with my new stag lefty. tried a few different rounds: wolf, federal and remington. noticed that the wolf ejected around 7 o'clock where federal and remington ejected around 9 o'clock. why is that?

anyways i loaded my first magazine of remington and after 4 rounds i pull the tigger, nothing happened. safely cleared the gun and looked at the round that was in the chamber to find it was .222 not .223! i checked the rest of the box (200 count) and they were correct.

what do you think? should i contact remington and voice my concern or just let it go?

I would be all over that one! :shock: Get on the horn with them pronto!

That could have been bad. Although I am an AR newb in the middle of my first build, I would think that could have caused some issues if the round went off.

Different ejection pattern might be the steel cases of the Wolf.

Was the problem round headstamped with .222 ? That's very strange, I'd give them a call.

headstamped .222 it did kinda freak me out as to what could have happened if it had gone off. especially with the amount of ppl at the range today.

You should contact them. I would want to tell them of the mistake and they will probably send you more ammo or some kind of refund for your trouble.

i've been using the umc in my 45, although i've never had that problem; i have noticed a lot more of cracked brass coming out.

accidents do happen. I'd probably call them.

As for ejecting, could be the steel case or the weaker ammo cycling differently.

Thats easy enough.. Just go and buy a box of .222... then every box that they send you for your troubles, just call them back and send them another .222 round.

I think they might catch on to that one real quick though... Not to mention the legality of it all.

Did you know the M16 was originally chambered for .222. Well you got a free box out of it although it was a dangerous lesson. The round may not have hurt your gun if it would have fired but then again who knows.
