Spike’s Tactical arranged for AIM Surplus to send me 1,830 rounds of 5.45×39 – a tin of surplus and 750 rounds of Silver Bear. I’ll be putting a good portion of that through my pre-production T&E Spike’s 5.45 tomorrow, and more over the weekend. I’ll be recording all of the shooting. I don’t expect any malfunctions, though – I’m 800 rounds in so far with zero hiccups.
A big thanks to Spike’s for sending me the upper and the ammunition, and trusting me help with some of the development work on the upper (although, as I said, it seemed pretty well sorted out when it arrived).
