I have seen that stuff advertised on Gunbroker before, I have heard of a few guys trying to get it to cycle in an AR but were not able to, even drilling out the gas port and using a dead buffer spring. I guess it wouldn't hurt to get a box or 2 but unless you want it for the brass you would get tired of shooting single shot 1K times.

Ok, I got a box... :-\

No big surprise, it won't cycle my well lubed XCR. I don't even think it was close.

It is a bit like shooting blanks, with the XCR sounding like it is almost spitting the plastic bullet.


The brass is fine and probably could be reloaded.

:p

That's my assessment, but I don't reload. I'll bring them to the Cove Va shoot on Saturday and see what 1redgmc and Aussie think.
I suppose it is possible they could cycle a surpressed XCR. Not sure

Is $130/1000 for primed brass a good deal?

Depends if it is Berdan primed, if it is I wouldn't want it as i could only use it once.

Personally I'd want some very reliable independent confirmation that the brass and primers from some sort of rubber-bullet riot control ammo were up to the task of being loaded to full pressure with real bullets before trying it... thats got potential disaster written all over it.

Drop the primer out a weigh the brass. If it's close try a light lllload with a lightweight frangible. If that goes ok, work your way up.
