Federal American Eagle, 55 Gr XM 193 Ammo

I bought 60 rounds of this ammo ( 5.56 x 45 mm) recently, for general target shooting.
I have read some bad reviews, mainly primers backing out upon firing.
I plan on shooting this ammo in a Bushmaster with a 20 " heavy bbl, with a 1-9 twist.
Does any one forsee any major problems that might arise, in the event of a primer backing out ?
How about some remarks, (good or bad), from past experience ?

You should not have any problem what so ever with that ammo. It is clean and reliable.

My 1/7 14.5" Noveske HATED XM193. The only problem I had was accuracy, everything else was great though.Cases grew a ton, needed lots of trimming to be reloaded.

Top-notch ammo, IMO.
It may not properly function in .223-chambered ARs

Please check THIS link out for current .223/5.56 ammo reviews
