Had a couple hours to try the new BCG today...and success!

Had the lightweight BCG in at first, and had an immediate failure to completely extract:

Swapped in the standard weight KAK BCG with dual ejectors and it ran like a top. 90 rounds of 10-rd mag dumps later,with zero malfunctions I think this one is ready for the ranch to get a real zero. This was all .308 so I need to test some 7.62x51 again to rule out a tight chamber (possibly from a worn reamer), but time to start dialing this one in.

I would like to get some version of the lightweight reciprocating mass to work reliably on both .308 and NATO ammo, even if I have to get the chamber re-reamed, but at least I have a combo that I feel comfortable taking game with now.

more info on the cons of shooting steelcase and steel jacketed ammo thru an AR. Maybe not more info, but corroboration from an alternate source.
