Aguila 150gr Ammo for 300 Blackout

Post by markr6754 » Thu Sep 19, 2019 2:05 am

Bought 3 boxes of 50 of this ammo from Gander Outdoors. Had a chance to shoot isn’t Sunday. The first round fired fine. Not so much the second - blew the primer out and apart into my AR. Anvil went upper, cup went lower. No signs of anything amiss except for a really black primer pocket.

Got home to deprime, and discovered every round, except blowout, had crimped primers. First I’ve encountered that in 300 BLK. I shot Sig Sauer 208gr subsonic the same day, as well as some Sellier & Bellot....no one else crimped the primers. At least that told me the reason one primer blew out...it wasn’t crimped. But what did they screw up to require crimping the primers in? I’m not sure I’ll even bother reloading these. I sure don’t need the brass.

I had the same issue with them, the primers would find its way into my trigger and lock it up. I found the flash holes were off center, I trashed the cases.
