This can cause "stuck" cases, which is why most American AR manufacturers advise AGAINST the use of steel cased ammo. Additionally, because steel does not expand as much as brass, the bolt face gets pounded with each shot fired. The best solution to keeping your son's interest is to get him an AR-15!!!
That's what he wants!! A local friend of his, a NYS trooper, has one for sale but my son doesn't have MONEY, being a college student!!
