I was shooting my AR at the range and dialing my scope in when I noticed smoke coming out of the lower on my gun. Thats not right! So I checked the gun and I saw what looked like a spent cartridge that didn't get extracted from the rifle so I tipped the gun over and out came the brass but is was separated. I found the other side of the brass and shipped it off of Black Hills for inspection after a few emails. They then offered to send me some replacement ammo and asked me what kind of bullet. So I opted for the Varmint Grenades since I am in the Condor zone and they sent me two boxes that arrived today. I am really happy about that! :welcomeani: Thanks Black Hills!

I always ordered the cheapest stuff BH's had to offer, reman with the V max bullet. Still shot better than any other factory ammo in my guns. I'm reloading now, but thought Blackhills stuff was a good value.

It was great for me also ,but then they changed their powder and it was like shooting black powder. Bought some more a month later and same thing , so i gave up on it. 5 shots and the patch looked like you cleaned a 50'chimney.
