A goof friend of mine owns a Stag Arms AR. I've put a few hundred rounds through it myself. Never a problem with brass casings. Not even my reloads.
I would never dream of putting wolf in my Colt after witnessing a jam with it on the range. Took a hammer to get the bolt loose.
If you're buying factory loads, spend the few extra dollars for decent rounds.
What was the malfunction?
Like what has been stated before, steel cased ammo is ok to put through any AR. The problems can be fixed the majority of the time w/ a lighter buffer. Some rifles have tight chambers that can cause problems too.
It may not be as accurate but for $189 per 1K minute of man is cool w/ me.
Ive never had a problem w/ steel in any of my ARs. DD, Spikes, BCM, LWRC, franken builds, etc... Even a 7.62x39 AR.
A lot of high round count hard use shooters use steel cased ammo.
