I was at the range and watched a guy blow up his HK91 a few benches over from me at the range he was using high velocity 175 grain Ammo. Kabooom!
I notice that the American eagle ammo is a 168 at 2,650 FPS and a hard primer.
The Springfield manual says to use nato spec Ammo.
I’d like to know if it’s safe to use Ammo like this 168 Australian Ammo that’s rated 2,780 FPS or do you risk damaging the op rod etc? (Not too concerned about slam fires with softer primers)
There’s a video of a guy shooting it in 3 different AR10s, not sure if ar10s have the same limitations as a m1a or not.
I have no interest in shooting 145-150 m80ball type Ammo.
