OK, a while back I was at the range and was using my Remington rolling block that's been rechambered for .357 Magnum. The Mag-Tech rounds I was using were doing fine, no extraction problems, misfires or anything. I wanted to try some 158 gr American Eagle ammo. The first round was very difficult to extract. I checked the primer and it didn't look like it had been over-pressured or anything, it just took some extra effort to remove it. The second round stuck worse and I had to pry on it with my pocket knife to get it out. I went back to the Mag-Tech ammo with no problems, and have not had a problem with it after firing another 2 boxes of Mag-Tech. I showed the two American Eagle casings to my gunsmith and he couldn't find anything wrong with the primers or any other indications of malfunction. I suggested maybe a batch of soft brass. He said it could be a possibility, but not likely. He re-checked head spacing on the rifle and mic'd everything. Everything checked normal. I just decided since I only had a couple boxes of American Eagle .357 Mag that came in a bulk shipment of assorted brands I'd use them in my S&W pistol, where they seem to work just fine. Then the other day I went to the range with the aim of repositioning the scope on my Bushmaster in order to get a little better eye relief. I fired a few groups just to see where it was shooting and make sure it was in the ballpark. I was using a couple boxes of American Eagle .223 FMJ ammo that I had picked up during the shortage. I had 3 misfires out of the first 10 rounds. The primers on the misfires didn't look like light strikes. I switched to PMC .223 FMJ for the rest of the afternoon and didn't have any more misfire issues. Has anybody else around here had issues with American Eagle ammo?
