Bigger booms are better booms...

So I ordered some ammo that I suspected would be warmer than 115gr Blazer Brass to see if that had any effect on reliability. Judging from the ejection patterns, I wasn't wrong about the TulAmmo and PPU being hotter than the CCI plinking loading.

Over the hundred rounds, there were no malfunctions of any type to report.

This makes 430 rounds fired through the Steyr C9-A1 without cleaning or lubing, with one failure-to-fire (#8), three failures to extract (#234, #266, #276), and one failure to go completely into battery (#116). 1,570 rounds left to go.
