I've never seen, let alone tried, International ammo. Based on what I see from your photos, it looks like pretty shitty stuff. It's almost as if they are destroying the brass as they load it at the factory.

@Shaun Meeds , in the future please try to post in the appropriate section with a proper title and a better description of your specific malfunction if your want someone to be able to help answer your question.

I've edited your title to better describe the issue and moved your thread to the appropriate sub forum. I also took the liberty of removing the picture you posted 3 times. Once is sufficient.

Just so you are aware; poorly titled, misplaced, and ambiguous threads are subject to deletion without warning.

Not a problem. We've just switched to a new format as well so everything is all over the place until I can sit down and reorganize what the new owners got all jumbled up.

Never had a malfunction in my 4595 but to me that looks like really thin walled brass, like they reloaded & trimmed old brass too many times then didn’t size it properly.
If that brass is too thin it’s not safe to shoot in a blowback carbine.

should call it ‘World Peace’ ammo cause if that’s what you’re bringing to a fight, you’ll be surrendering by sundown.

I know ammo is hard to come by but I’d rather toss that stuff in the trash or donate it to someone that reloads to salvage the components before I’d risk a kaboom.

new owners? who would they be..
Like do you want the whole break down or did the dozen or more posts and huge thread about the new software roll out not cover it?

Vertical Scope has been flying their newly acquired gun forums under the Outdoor Hub/Carbon Media banner for several months now after acquiring several companies in control of thousands of forums.

I was thinking the same thing! Those cases look like bullet jacket from the photos. The only time I've seen cases look like that was either a bad extractor (which would do it all the time) or reloads that had too much bell lip left on the bullet. It doesn't look like that's the case from the factory just by the picture. Try running your thumbnail around the case edge and feel for burrs or a part of the case lip not being tight to the bullet. I'd contact the company with a phone call, get a name and an email and send 'em some pics. They'll probably send you a gift card or something (or more shitty bullets).

The box says "made in the USA" unless that's just the box,
