    Update: Independence 5.56 XM193I

    Long story short I dropped my rifle on the hardwood floor last night. I figured it's a good excuse to head to the range. The Strikefire was still dead nuts on, but the irons printed slightly right. The Troy fixed front hadn't budged either so I think the MBUS was to blame for a slight shift. The shooting wasn't the interesting part though. This was:

    As I was finishing up and I scooped up my brass I saw pronounced ejector markings. I've seen these before, but not this pronounced. This was a lot of Independence 5.56 XM193I. The FC brass seems to gouge much more than LC has in the past. There was even some cratering around the primer strike. Did a thorough cleaning after the session. Softer brass? Any thoughts on the photos below would be appreciated.
