    I found two clips where the rounds on the end were LC 68. The others were a mix of 70, 72, 74 and 76. They all fired and ejected normally. I guess the short-cycling ammo (LC 68 and LC 72) had seen less than optimum storage before it was issued to me at a DCM event.

      Orlando, you seem to be correct. Now that the rifle has had a few hundred rounds through it it's cycling ALL of my surplus ammo with no short cycles or other malfunctions.
      It's also about 30 degrees colder than it was in early November. The rifle has been well greased and lubricated throughout.

        Cold soaked rifle and a clip of LC68 between 0 and 10degF for several hours. Fired off the clip with no problems.

          Thought I'd make the point that the rifle functioned properly right from the beginning with M2 "spec" ammo. It's been the wimpy old DCM stuff (2400fps) that caused problems.
