First for me...

So I'm out at the range laying down some lead with my Ar-15 6.5mm Grendel and all of a sudden my brass isn't ejecting out correctly. The brass was getting turned around 180 degrees and jamming backwards in the bolt. After taking the entire damn thing apart, and spending 45 min trying to figure it out, I find that my ejection pin is bent so bad I needed to take a hammer to it to get the damn thing out.

This was a first for me, I have never in all my years bent an ejection pin. I've broken and or replaced springs but never the pin. Nice thing is, weapon still shot 3 round groups that could be covered with a nickel BANG BANG

Is this from underground tactical? Seen their bacon maker series, pretty good looking rig they got.

That's not a normal part to break.

It is an Underground Tactical Bacon Maker. I wanted something that I could hunt with, plink with, but more Importantly reach out and touch someone with good ballistics. 6.5 Grendel is on par with 308 with half the kick and in an AR15 frame.

I agree not the typical part to break

Factory Hornady Ammo.

Got the 6.5 Grendel back from Underground Tactical. They replaced the gas system, bolt, and BCG. Good to go. These guys have great customer service.
