I did manage to get a few semi bursts with last 1/3 of the belt.
I tried all three gas settings. I'm using FMJ ammo. The belt links are new, and I know I'm loading it correctly. Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong.
it could be your belt is to tight. I have a few new belts at the shop that are to tight for the bullets to feed. each gun has at least 60 rounds of live ammo and 30 to 40 blanks run through them before being refinished. I haven't had problems with the feed ramps on the dsa receivers they seem to have gotten them right.
You need to hold the gun firmly when firing so it does not short cycle , this will cause feed problems as well.
