I jump j.010 on the bolt gun, same as the AR version. My reamer has zero freebore. Who did the barrel job and why is there so much freebore?

Green is copper and /or brass oxidation, exposed to air or moisture. I would surmise the humidity got in to the case when they were loaded.

Good pick and a memory that will last a lifetime. My grandson loves to break clay birds. I started him at 25 yards and worked up to 100 yards. Kids really enjoy seeing them break.

I've seen some conversions that work with a standard .223 bolt and a few that jammed or wouldn't feed properly. Any chance of converting the original back to the Fireball?

Could be copper. Try some JB bore paste. If it's a stainless barrel, it could still be corrosion. Having said that, if it still shoots, fuggeddaboutit.:D

I would try CCI standard or BR4 primers. IMO, magnum primers in a tiny shell like the .223 are not needed and could be the cause of your accuracy issues.

Thumbs up Good news

Was reported on accurateshooter.com that they have intentions to rebuild and may take six months to a year. Good news for a change.

For those that use FB, updates will be posted there.
