Re: Varmint gernades

they work in mine with out an ishu even 30 rounds on full . MPG's are good for longer shots the V.G.'s are great for squirrel they POP!! at 100y with the MPG's they just drop with no POP best way I can explain it . Big thing is clean and use copper cleaner in the A/R every time out on ether one.

Re: Varmint gernades

Is it ok to use a cleaner with ammonia in a chrome lined barrel? Just got some 50 BMG for my bolt rifle. Figured I would ask before I did it.

Re: Varmint gernades

I was understanding the VG's had too soft a bullet and did not hold up to the hard handling of the autoloading. Not necessarily on the first but if it auto loaded two or three times, bullet can come apart in and lodge in the barrel. Next bullet loads and you have AR 15 parts all over. But in your defense one would think BARNES would warn against use in AR's.
