Posted over at the Cheaperthandirt blog, they talk about both the pros and cons of using steel cased ammo. While there are some down sides to using steel cased ammo, such as polymer coatings and dirtier powder, there’s also a few positives to using steel cased ammo. Such as cheaper cost and availability. Heck even WalMart carries steel cased Tulammo these days.
I’ve used thousands upon thousands of rounds of steel cased ammo in my Russian and American made guns, and while I’ve had a few jams, stovepipes and light strikes, I still feel steel cased ammo has its place. Would I use it for home defense? Definitely not, but for plinking at the range it’s hard to beat when you factor in the cost savings.
