Stainless steel cases and load your own, the steel cases easy clean and if you load your own you can get a low burn powder to save all the mess and you can melt your own bullet heads to suit your own weight of bullet heads for different types of shooting.

This also saves you money to improve you weapon.

Stainless steel cases, bullet heads...... I've heard it all. I can now die knowing I've lived a complete life.

Yes, all that time reloading makes the range trip worth while and its better than factory ammo

Where pray tell do you get these stainless steel cases? I have been using lowly brass to reload for the past 40+ years. I have been looking into plastic though.

my local gun shop stocks them, try magtech, i have to buy them already loaded, shoot them and then reload them.

plastic, that sounds great, apart from 12 gauge and 410 plastic shells, i have not heard of rifle bullets loaded in plastic cases, or do you know better ?

To my knowledge there are no such things as Stainless Cases. I know for a fact that the regular steel cases are very tough on dies and shouldn't really be used (plus most of them are berdan primed anyhow). The cases you're talking about are probably nickel.

On a side note, unless you're buying the more expensive brass cased ammo, it isn't worth it to reload for 7.62x39. The steel cased stuff is so cheap it would cost you more to reload it.

What the clown is referring to, is nickel plated brass.

So this reference of stainless steel casings, and referring to projectiles as "bullet heads" so strongly enforces the idea that this guy doesn't know an F'ing thing about guns, ammo, or reloading.

yes us clowns call silver coloured brass stainless, i did not mean solid stainless,
So sorry for the confussion and this guy does know how to reload, bacause when i started out i got all sorts of help and tips from reloaders all over the world, which i am gratefull for, so thankyou all.

I enjoy reloading when its quite and you dont get bothered, i enjoy reloading as much as shooting, reloading does take time to learn and is a art.

cheers chris
