I shoot steel case ammo in everything but my 30/06. If I could replace the 30/06 by just buying a new gun I would shoot steel case ammo for practice. Over the life of a rifle you will save over $1,000 to replace the rifle.

When I break in a new semi auto rifle or pistol I use steel case ammo. Steel case ammo will polish out casting marks and other imperfections that are soft metal/slag.

Buy all the steel case ammo you want, does not bother me and the fact I shoot only brass cased ammo has no bearing on the OP's original rant but boy do I feel good.

I've had two stove pipes in my RI AR 15. One steel cased Tula and one brass reload. Both occurred, in my opinion, because I didn't properly clean the rifle after I bought it. Got it home from the store, reached into my gun closet and grabbed whatever 223 ammo I could grab and headed out to the timber. Once I cleaned and oiled it properly, I could probably fire rocks without a jam.

I perfer brass, but I also reload. You hoot what you want, it is a free country. As far as people telling you how to run your rifle I feel ya. I know a few guys who seem to always know everything and whatever they say is the only way. They never let you speak and they are quick to correct. What can you do though, just keep trying to have fun and enjoy the sport.

It looks like none of you read Jeng Tao Tzu. "Wise men", he wrote, "will shoot bamboo arrows while hard wood is in short supply; and thus will achieve victory in the absence of an adversary!"

Come on guys

IMO, given the proper circumstances, steel ammo is OK. Personally,

I prefer it in the looser combloc actions. At the price, it's OK

for emergency stash ammo.

I reload, also, so brass is more valuable to me, too, but in guns

which aren't too finicky, steel is a fine alternative.

My ARs run well on steel cased ammo. i have a huge supply of military brass cased ammo; otherwise i would use steel cased stuff exclusively.

I run steel through my 7.62x39 build exclusively too, that's why I built it, to save money. The only thing I worry about is the salt eating the barrel. As long as you neutralize the barrel and clean it ASAP, there are no issues. I've ran 1K plus through it and it is still running like a champ. I hear the same comments all the time, but my boom stick will outrun most running steel. It's yours and do what you want with it. imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1399898883.122277.jpg
