I was at the Range a few weeks ago and a guy showed up and parked on the bench next to me. He had a Bohica 50 cal. After he fired his first round, he and his friend were beating on the bolt with a piece of wood and a hammer.
I was shooting my M99 that day with some of my reloads so they asked for my help and opinion. They eventually got the bolt back and the case out. They were shooting some of the Federal ammo and looking at the case they had just fired, it had some sticky black spots on it. I asked if they had cleaned the chamber and they claimed that the rifle chamber was all clean. In looking at the rest of the Federal NEW ammo in their box, it wasn't all shiny like you would expect it to be and had spots of something all over them. If I worked at it, I could eventually scrap some of the stuff off with my fingernail.
The also had purchased a box of Barrett ammo and I showed them the difference in the visual quality of the Barrett compared to the Federal. I told them to try to clean up the Federal ammo before shooting any mor in their Bohica.
They had no problems with the Barrett ammo.
