If you were anywhere close to me I would love for you to fire them. I'd even furnish the ammo and thearapists.

Don't blame the tool, blame the fool.

You CAN put 87 octane gas in a ZR-6 Corvette, but you will not get the same performance and you may cause damage to the engine.

SKS's and AK's were designed to shoot steel cased, laquered ammo. They shoot it fine. A Chevette was designed to use 87 octane gas and it does just fine on it.
I respect your opinion, but the savings are more than a few cents right now. For range use, I'll continue to use Silver Bear. The black rifle is a little more tolerant IMHO. If an extractor goes south I'll replace it. Brass ammo wears on the system too. Your advice is well founded, but, for me, I'll gamble.
