I purchased 500 rounds of Sellier and Bellot 9mm FMJ at a gun show in January for what I deemed a good deal (50 rd boxes for $5 a box). Having never purchased this ammo before (i was looking for deals on ammo before 1/20/09) I've got a few questions. 1) I noticed the primer seems to have some kind of red laquor (sp??) on it. Is this the norm for Sellier and Bellot? 2) From talking with several of the operators at my local shooting range I was told that the 'brass' is actually brass coated steel. They went on to tell me that this could greatly damage my pistol due to steel being unforgiving in the barrel. Damage to the point of a kB! Is there any truth to this, or are they just blowing smoke? I've got a Glock, or as JD would say, a plastic wonder pistol. Thanks for the input.
