CBC Ammo SITREP?

I did the 'Forum Search' option , but didn't come up with a result that was any younger than 4 years old ... so ... I figured I'd stick my neck out ....

I have a buddy wanting to trade me some of his "2013 Ammo Hoard" for some random jargon I have lying around my shop.

The majority of the 7.62 x51 ammo that he has is the CBC / Gold Box M80 from 2012 / 2013.

Has anyone run into any issues with it since it flooded the market back in 2013? I don't see much of it available anymore, and was wanting to make sure that there weren't any 'failures' associated with it.

Thanks in advance.

There have been a few different calibers with recalls with the CBC brand name.

7.62 surplus ammo Post #14...

As I have noted before on this Forum, I would walk away from CBC brand names (July 2006).
"Oh by the way, I do not list Corrosive ammunition here or brands that are labeled with Animals or Metals."

I don't think any of this stuff is affected by that recall.

From what I gather it is solely 1975 production dates in the recall, and everything he has was produced in 2012/2013 and sold by MidwayUSA back during the '2013 scare'.

It's solid ammo. I was purchasing CBC back in 13. Very solid brass.

I bought 2 50rd boxes, nothing noteworthy, including the accuracy.

Not long ago I pulled some CBC M80 and was pleased to find stick powder, which usually burns cleaner than ball. What I didn't like was the exposed lead at the base of bullets. Very sloppy, often on the outside of the jacket. This will melt before the bullet leaves the barrel.
