Looking for your input gunway who has used this ammo in there AR's what were you experiences good or bad..... so far i have had no problems at all!
two of the guys I work with bought 1000 rounds of this and never had a single problem with it
I bought a box of 500 about 6 months ago for 200 bucks and never had issues with it, I think its good range ammo.
Bought 100 rounds (5 boxes of 20), didn't make it through the first box before i had 3 FTE, last one i had to punch out of the chamber with a cleaning rod. Also heard rumor that this ammo my void "some" warrantys. Not sure but be careful, spent a couple extra bucks for better stuff.
My AR is made by CMMG. Their manual specifically states that steel cased ammo voids the lifetime warranty.
I dont know about for an Ar but my al Sks and walther love this stuff its cheap non corrosive and goes bang everytime couldn't ask for better range ammo
One of the main issues with steel cases is fouling. If you start with a clean chamber first, you "shouldn't" have too much problems. As steel doesn't expand against the chamber walls as well as brass, you get carbon fouling that blows back into the chamber. If you fire brass after steel, you can have major issues. The brass case will expand against the fouling and cause extraction problems.
I've never had a problem with an AK. Cleaning is fun, but I don't run that stuff through my AR.
Shooting Tul in my buddy's Bushmaster I had a failure to extract. Took it home, popped out the empty with a cleaning rod. Turns out the rim of the case broke just where the extractor grabs the rim. That was my first and last experience with Tul.
Never shot it in an AR but I shoot it in my .45 all the time. @rnhathaway is right though. It does run dirtier. My question is what does steel do to your extractor over the long haul? The rumor I always hear is that steel wears out extractors quicker than brass. Any opinions?
Come on. Crack a book.
Case swelled in my DD and it locked everything up. Had to wait for it to cool and then it still took some work. I was done with Tula after 3 rounds.
Usually don't have a problem with MP Shield 9mm, but failure to extract was problem on every other round with the Walther Pk380 (which is fickle with cheap ammo to begin with).
Works fine on my Beretta 92 and my M&P .45, but both of them will cycle just about anything. Almost a total waste of time on any decent AR frame weapon. I actually got more rounds before a FTE or folded case rim out of that cheap russian steel case ammo Cabellas used to sell.
