Remington R 15

My new Remington R15 appears to not have a chrome lined barrel nor chamber, and the inside of the bolt carrier, does not ether, I shot this rifle last weekend, and did not clean it. Got it out again the next day, to shoot it again, and it was jam city, until I cleaned it, after that, it was perfect. It eats hornady factory ammo all day long, but you can forget about steel case Russian crap. It will not feed it, without jamming. It don't matter how clean the rifle is, it appears to only like brass case ammo. Anyone else seen this.

Not to call you out but are you sure your cleaning it right?

No upper reciver that I have ever seen has been chrome lined. Also you dont need a chrome lined bore and chamber on a hunting rifle and thats what you have a hunting rifle.

On the jamming issue. I have never seen a rifle that will not feed wolf ammo. Your upper reciver should start clean and be dunked in oil before shooting. GO right ahead and lube the hell out of the BCG with some CLP, Slip 2000, miltech etc a wet AR is a happy AR.

Re: Remington R 15

I have been shooting AR type rifles since August of 1981, Thats when i joined the U S Army, so Yea, i know how to clean a AR 15, I have a Bushmaster XM 15, and it has the chrome lining in the chamber, and in the bolt carrier, So the only thing i can think of is, Like you said, it is a hunting rifle, and thats the way it's built.

Some one told me today that the rifle is for 223 Remington ammo only and that i should not shoot NATO 5.56. I looked at the top end of the barrel and sure enough it says 223 REM.
Also i have never had a problem with shooting steel case ammo, in any of my AR's
COLT, Bushmaster, But this Remington R15 Will Not Feed it. No matter what, Especially Wolf.

And i read on another forum that this rifle is made by Bushmaster.

Re: Remington R 15

Just read a article on the Bushmaster site that some of their rifles have 4150 Chromoly Vanadium Steel. so they will not be chrome lined.

Icanhithimman, you said you never seen a upper of a AR-15 that was chrome lined????

Yep I said that. Never seen an upper that was chrome lined in my life. Barrels and chambers are another story.

As for the 223 rem/ 5.56 thing I would not worry about it. Think of it like this have you ever seen 5.56 dies for sale?

5.56 has to operate in a broad range of weapons plaftorms under conditions that the avarage guy will never put their weapon through. Thus the chamber is a bit looser and the pressue at which the ammo is loded to is much higher.

Remington is owned by the cerbuis group they own lots of stuff to say the least remington, bushmaster, AAC just to name a few. I hate them lol

Re: Remington R 15

I have never seen a upper that was chrome lined ether, thats why i asked you after the fact, since you mentioned it. I like chrome chambers, it makes for easy extractions, especially on surplus steel case ammo. I have heard all the debates and BS on the 223, and 5.56, the should and the shouldn'ts, and i still fire all of it in my ar's, and nothing has blown up yet. But it is strange this rifle will not feed steel case ammo, it could be an extraction issue?

Re: Remington R 15

could be alot of things. You have a few choices, stop shooting wolf ammo upgrade your extractor to the crane or replace bolt or whole bcg with better model like BCM and then you could mess with the spring and buffer weights.

I suppose there could be an issue with 5.56 ammo in a 223 if the chamber was out of spec and it caused excesive pressure. Could brake the bolt but I have never seen it happen.
