I took my JRA M72B1 out to the range a few weeks ago. I fired about 60 rounds. I had two ammunition related failures to fire. It wasn't the rifle, it was two rounds of Golden Tiger (older lot, bought maybe 5+ years ago) that failed to fire. The rifle did its' part and swatted and dented the primer quite adequately, but they just didn't go. On the third try with both rounds, they went. The rifle already came sighted for me at the 50 yards I was testing at. No other failures, just that failure of two rounds of GT. The Brown Bear I also fired had no issues in the rifle. I like the M72B1 better than the AES10B, it seems a tad less unwieldy for some reason, maybe the slightly shorter barrel...
