Ok, I only shot 50rds, so it's not a definite result.
But, those 50rds went bang every time, ejected every time, and the next round loaded every time.
It did not seem loaded hot, as it didn't seem to bash the carbine around.
Was quite enjoyable to shoot.

5/15rd KCI M1 Carbine magazine also of course worked flawlessly.

No idea of accuracy, was just shooting to check reliability.

~100yrd results with tula 62gr HP .223 and the savage axis
My rest was a range bag up front, nothing rear.
Top left & center groups are from a different box of the same ammo, seemed to open up more. They were also the last two, and I didn't wait between shots.
I did have one failure to fire. Good primer strike, no ignition at all.
For $8/box, I'm impressed. I expected a shotgun pattern.

It might be the grain weight did you happen to try a different weight load?

I shot the .308 and the 62gr HP .223 on the weekend.
Went boom everytime. No probs.

I was just shooting holes in paper, my goal for accuracy was hitting a sheet of paper. :)

I was pleased that it was clean and did not stink like surplus ammo.
