    I believe its safe for both chambers. The guy that's hooking me up said its mil-spec (for the Saudi and Jordan government) which I assume is SAMMI not SPC II.
    I'm as excited to have a few hundred LC cases as I am the ammo, should he some good stuff!

    Range today, shot about 1/2" at 50 yards, lots of cloverleafs. All I could do was 50 today, doing the 50/200 zero thing and o don't have a 200 anywhere.

    Well I got 15 boxes today, not going to shoot any until I get a good stack of it in my safe but the brass is annealed and has a crimped primer like LC brass but its not LC, its stamped "FC 6.8mm SPC". An odd thing I noticed is the primer has two small letters stamped it it, "AR", has anyone else noticed that?
    I should be picking up a case here soon for $500, hopefully two cases if I'm lucky!

    Yes...as shown in your other post where you asked the same question.

    300 AAC Blackout Chambering Cancelled:


    Some time ago, Savage announced it would be chambering the Model 10 Precision Carbine in 300 AAC Blackout. Since that time, we have tested many variants of this cartridge in various barrel lengths and rates of twist. This exhaustive testing left us quite unsatisfied with the accuracy we were able to get from the subsonic loads in this chambering. Accuracy with the lighter, faster loads in this caliber was actually quite good. But we believe the real value in this cartridge lies in the use of subsonic loads for suppressed rifles. Therefore we have decided to scrap the project.
    It is our understanding that pushing these heavy, slow bullets presents challenges not found in typical loadings and that our experience is not unique. Subsequently, many in the industry have simply adopted a lower standard for accuracy for these subsonic loads. While this does seem reasonable and we don't criticize any in our industry that have taken this approach, it just won't work for Savage.
    Our brand was built on accuracy and we are too protective of our reputation for building the most accurate factory rifles available. We would rather walk away from this opportunity than sell a product that requires an explanation.

    So you couldn't say more than yes? I'm asking because I've never seen a primer like that but if it's too hard to answer I'm sure someone else will chime in (which they did). Thanks.

    It states they use mil spec compound so yes they would be in the magnum range.

    I'm sorry...but your statement / question was

    "There's something I've never seen before with these, the primers are stamped with the letters "AR". Anyone else notice this or know what that's about?"


    I answered you: "Yes...we have seen these before..." and posted a picture of them here: http://68forums.com/forums/showthrea...233#post448233

    Then...a day later you post in this thread: "An odd thing I noticed is the primer has two small letters stamped it it, "AR", has anyone else noticed that? "...after I had already answered your question previously.

    How many times do you need to have the same question answered?

    When I point out the fact you are asking a question that was already asked by you and answered a day before...you post a derogatory response to the very person that initially answered your question.

    One of our responsibilities as moderators is to eliminate duplicate threads and posts.

    In most cases a duplicate question in separate threads results in deleting the second duplicate question or thread. You have now posted in two different threads asking the same question about the Federal AR primers.

    You have also posted in multiple threads regarding your purchase of Federal ammo. Apparently it's time to do some housecleaning of some of your duplicate posts.

    When you post a smart a$$ response to someone who was trying to help you...you cut off any chance of any assistance in the future.
