Hey Guys, been a while. To keep things short...
I was at the range shooting SGL31 which has been flawless through 8K rounds. While shooting I had two malfunctions and also a failure to extract out of the chamber. Cleared them thinking it was a weird anomaly and on the next 2 or 3 rounds a case was stuck in the chamber bad. After destroying several cleaning rods and even getting one stuck in the barrel for a while a nice veteran helped me dig the case out with a sharp flat head.
I later googled to see if anyone else has had a similar experience and it seems that there are several reports of the ammo not running right. There was even a guy who took dimension of the case and said the case neck or mouth was a hair thick.
I contacted Century aka RSA to see what they had to say:

Just like with any ammo manufacture sometimes there maybe a bad lot that gets through. We our working on fixing the quality control of our ammo manufactures and have addressed this situation.

I just wanted to inform you that last week I was shooting your 5.45x39 cartridges in my SGL31 that had previously had ~8k flawless rounds through it. I had multiple jams in the first magazine ending with a stuck case in the chamber. Hopefully the barrel is not damaged by the casing or the procedure used to remove it. After my range trip I went home and found that this seems to be a common occurence on the internet. I just wanted to inform you and get your take on these experiences.
