Well, sometimes (especially during the last run on ammo when you couldn't find any) it's because that is all that is available....
I have an AK - in the grand scheme of things it is not a very expensive firearm. I pretty much ONLY shoot Tula ammo through it. Have never had a problem at all.
I also, at the higher end, own an Ed Brown 1911. It is what I would consider to be expensive. There have been times when I could not find any .45 ammo except Tula steel case.
So I bought it and have no qualms whatsoever shooting the heck out of it in my EB - have done so many times.
I will say that, given a choice, I will buy Winchester White Box or other brass case (but lower cost) target rounds to shoot.
Bottom line is that this type of problem can happen with any factory loads & I do not feel the need to "baby" any of my guns with the most expensive factory loads.
I am trying to find the 'best' FMJ target loads for the least amount of money.
I guess that I figure if I paid that much for an EB then it should damn well shoot and feed anything that I want to put in it.
Just me though....
