Well to say the very least, I was not happy. Had three misfires in 25 rounds. All three round were "struck" and did not fire. Also cause two jams in the receiver, which I believe may be because of a slight difference in case/head measurement.

Anyway, just wanted to throw out one guys experience, I have written Winchester, but no response as yet. stay safe out there. CSM-H
