Default First Range Trip with the SDS12

Well here is what I found:

Gun ran fine even with the 7.5 from Walmart going at 1200 FPS
However I would have a failure to eject on the last round 3 out of 5 magazines.
Ran a total of 50 shells, all shot and cycled fine.
It did that with some NATO 00 as well, same results.

Ran ten 2-3/4, 1oz sluggers and those ran fine and no hiccup on the last round but I only ran 2 mag full.

I suspect that there is something going on with the supplied magazine. All shots were mage with the largest gas port.

I just received three 10 rounders from SMG designed for the saiga... we shall see.
I really like how the gun shots and if I can get the last round issues worked out I would love the gun!

Is it a Cheetah ? Mine would not cycle the 1200 bulk pack. However anything 1350 even 7 or 8 shot cycled like a champ. RE: your last round issue : hand polish your bolt contact surface and rails also you can polish your gas puck mine came a little abrasive out the box I just smoothed it out with some 800 SP then some Mothers Mag Polish. and make sure the gas chamber is clean and dry , hand cycle and keep shooting. Try the Wally Winchester Dove & Clay 1oz #8 shot 1350 fps @ 4.78$ a box of 25 about the same as those 1200s. They run 100% on the # 4/4 gas setting. All hi brass slug or θθ buck shot I change the gas setting over to 3/4 since #2 wont cycle complete. #1/4 is just closed.
