I run steel-cased rounds in my AK's, but nowhere else. I swear they were made for steel. Wouldn't even think of it for my favorite semi-auto pistols, but then again there is no real need there as I am very well-stocked with brass-cased at pre-crisis prices in all the popular semi-auto calibers. Steel-cased in revolvers? Just haven't found the need... yet.What do you think of the ammo that uses metal casings? Hurt pistol? TulAmmo? Why do gun ranges not allow?
thanks. New shooter that bought some before realizing that it was metal.Some, if not all steel cases are coated in a rust preventive.....which can build-up in the chamber. Requiring a little more cleaning! As to increased extractor wear: AK’s used in very inhospitable climates and virtually no maintenance seem to function quite well against our troops! memtb
This.I like them. I run them in my .45 ACP 1911 and mine and my wife's AR's and in our 9 MM's. It wont hurt your extractor. Your barrel may wear out a little faster but it would take many thousands of rounds to do it. The cost savings would vastly make up for the price of a new barrel. The reason they seem to be so dirty is steel doesn't expand to fill the chamber like brass does so you get a little more blowback. Just clean the thing when you're done shooting it.
