Politically Incorrect: My carbon 15 loves steel cased crap ammo. I have shoot a couple of thousand rounds of tula threw it and the only problem I have had is 1 light strike. I have found silver bear to be underpowered that could be your problem. Run some wolf 223 and let me know who that worked.
mk222lr: it goes to say we are dealing with lower end ars my uncle and I bought 2 identical bushmaster xm15s new and we each bought a case of wpa polyformance (steal case) mine had no issues his was the opposite it was like the casing swelled in his but that just meant I got to buy his case of ammo cheap lol I have had close to 4500 rounds through mine and the only issue I have is wen I shoot the bolt some times doesn't carry the next round pretty sure its a magazine issue though
Crazy Joe Guns And Freedom: I changed the extractor spring on mine, harder spring. Not a problem with steel after that.
Jared Wiseman: I shoot steel monarch 223 with no problem. I wonder what was going on?
Anthony Nelson: I have a carbon 15 as well and it is an amazing ar platform for the price. I do shoot steel case without problems and I have shot 70 grain through it. I am in the works of getting a slide fire stock of my own. Did you have to swap out your buffer tube?
cordelmar: How you do on accuracy?
1brentleysv: i have the carbon 15 and have never had any problems shooting tulammo steel cased 223.
no problems what so ever, except i had extra money because it is much cheaper!
Robert Clayton: Tulammo is steel cased.. He said the gun doesnt eject steel.. Just brass
Joe Highfill: I have the same setup as you minus the frontsight. Is that a low profile front sight or standard size? Your reply would be great. Thanks.
Chris Parks: How much TulAmmo have you used? I have avoided using it but if it works fine in this rifle, I will as it's about half the price.
CaRrYoN4: What front sight do you have on it?
Terry Shurtleff: hey man i cant seem to install a rail system on mine.. im in the army and got a rail system from work.. is that my problem? should i just buy a civilian style rail?
Kent Payne: I also have the same setup as yours I've put 3000 thru it NEVER EVER ANY PROBLEM's some people claim this gun is crap I HAVE TO DISAGREE IT'S A FINE GUN
Deeagle50: I made this video when the only steel case ammo I tried in it was Silver Bear ammo. It is nickel plated steel cased ammo. I have since tried tulammo and wolf and it runs fine. As far as this rifle goes it is strictly a range toy and nothing else. I've got other AR's that would be my go to rifles.
ChasingTruth TakingFlak: Any AR worth a damn should run steel-cased ammo. There's a misconception that steel-cased ammo isn't "meant" to be run in ARs, it is, it should be completely fine.
In my opinion, with the AR being a weapon that you should be able to bet your life on, not running steel-cased is a deal-breaker.
Other people have said that their carbon-15s have no problem running steel-case, so I don't really know what to believe.
Politically Incorrect: I've shot about 750 WPA wolf steel case rounds with 0 problems.
daverock00: I got a carbon 15 a few months ago and shot probably 100 rounds of steel case tulammo and never had a problem with it firing or ejecting... I believe the buffer tube is commercial
Mike Gallaher: LOVE MINE!!!
ZhaoYun320: oh dude...damn...can it be removed or even bypassed?
Deeagle50: Your rifle is equiped with a California compliant "bullet button".
