    I only shot 50 rounds, but for sure this ammo has very hard primers. I had 1 FTF which did fire on the second try, and one double-trouble stoppage.

    I believe it is a known offender. See this thread, if you haven't already.

    havent had any trouble with S&B in my pair of M9's nor M40.

    the primer sealant can gunk things up but have to shoot more than 100 for that.
    definitely clean striker channel after firing it.

    the primers arent as strong as glock owners let on. steyrs will ignite small rifle primers with ease.

    Have not shot it thru my M9, but I had a half-case that malfed my Glock 19 with some regularity due to skimpy powder charge.

    I shot close to 1000rds this weekend in my SBR'ed HK94 and suprisingly there was zero residue from the sealant. I expected little flakes and such all over the inside and especially the trigger group, but there was none to be found. It is fairly clean ammo also.
