I personally try and avoid steel cased Ammo in Handguns, I suppose it can be shot safely in most Carbines.

Put over 1,000 rounds of those through my sig and walther with no problems whatsoever. What exactly are your concerns?

Just wondering how it performs in a semi auto pistol. I have shot steel cased through rifles but never through handguns.

I left it on the shelf for now mainly because the Walmart's suddenly have brass 9mm around here. However at that price, if its reliable, I am thinking it may be good to stash some away.

Send me a case and I will give you a range report.

I have shot a lot of WPA steel case 9mm. I have never had an opportunity to shoot any Monarch, but I would / will if I see some to buy.

I've seen where some steel case 9mm has caused a Walther to "stutter" in FTEs.

Two guys, using 1 handgun, on 1 target. The pistol got a little warm and the coating of the steel case was hanging within the chamber. I gave them 5 rounds of brass casings and the handgun worked perfect.

Monarch ammo in any caliber, brass or steel cased, has been very reliable, consistent and clean in all my guns. On top of that, the price is fanatastic too.

I had problems with some of the TulAmmo (also steel cased). It fired OK, but it would jam up in my magazines. I carry XDm 9mm Compact. The double stack magazine seems to offset the rounds just enough to where they can jam against each other. Could be surface roughness or coating. The brass casings are smoother and do not have that problem.

The real challenge with modern steel case ammo and FTEs is not the coating. Rather it is the fact that steel cases are less "elastic" than brass and do not expand and contract as quickly,thus giving some firearms FTE issues.
