Went to the range today with my Grendel with its side charging upper. Gun shoots fine but i was having intermitent feeding issues with full mag or near empty mag it didnt matter. Its a 10 round clip from Alexander Arms. Sometimes it would wedge a round in the action. A few times it didnt pick a round up at all. When i got back home i bent the feed lips upward and put it back into the gun. Slowly pulling the charging handle back and easing it forward the bullet tip contacts the feed ramp perfectly either side and feeds so hopefully that will fix that problem. If anyone has anything else to add that i might check. feed ramps look ok to me. The other thing i wanted to discuss is brass ejection. My brass ejects and lands at about 4 1/2 to 5 o clock position constantly. Does this sound proper position or not. my 5.56 carbine ejects at about 2 to 3 o clock position, but that upper has the brass deflector on it. What are your thoughts on the Grendels brass throw. It never failed to eject a round. In any case i was a little disgusted because of my magazine issue it kind of irritated me so i didnt have as good a time as i would have liked. But the gun sure shot smooth and was a thrill to shoot. I just couldnt stay focused on trying to get a group with my feeding problem. Oh the ammo i was using were two different kinds i only had the one magazine. The ammo was Hornady 123 gr and the Lapua Scenars 123 from Alexander Arms. Both rounds shot sweetly through the barrel. But both had feeding issues. I would say more so with the Hornady. The lapua seemed to work better but still had problems. In any case i bent the feed lips. Is there any guidelines for what im suppose to be looking for on the procedure for bending them? Any help from you gentleman on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
