This weekend I was able to put about 250 rounds thru my dpms 16" bull barrel. It only had 100 round prior. As I was putting it away I noticed what I could only call blow by on the barrel going forward from the gas block.

So my question is, is this normal to have?
rifle shot fine even with pmc bronze.

so basically you're saying there is gas coming out from underneath the gas block ?

interesting.... is is a clamped or set screw gas block ?
