Has anyone had trouble with Golden Tiger primers?
I've bought and shot a fair amount of it over the past few years, no problems historically. Recently I bought a mixed lot of ammo off GB and included in that lot was a few hundred GT 7.62x39. When I went out shooting with the GT, it seemed like I had an awful lot of duds (close to one per mag). Heavy primer strike, but no bang. I don't recall this ever being a problem in the past with this brand of ammo, and the AK has been solid otherwise. It spit out wolf and golden bear just fine on the same day it was having problems with the GT. Just curious.
I had 2 cases of Golden Tiger a couple years ago that averaged 1 dud per 100 rnds. A few other members also reported having issues. I think it was just a bad lot as I don't think anyone had had issues since.
I've always had good luck with Golden Tiger, I think they're probably the best steel cased 7.62x39 going.
Just went through a 1000 rounds of Golden Tiger 7.62x39 this summer. Fired it through a Saiga, Bulgarian Arsenal & a Chinese AK.
Not 1 problem.
I just bought another case of GOLDEN TIGER !!!!
