Nfg. That Russian crap is steel cased lacquered, and from what I’ve read it messes up chambers with build up. Couldn’t tell you first hand however as I’ve never used the stuff.

Shoot them but dont let one sit in the chamber. Will expand from heat and get lodged in there.

Bang is better than no bang

But quality bang wins every time.

I've seen the case lock up the action on ARs but usually the rifle was poorly maintained (not lubed well)

It's on my mind because a wholesale place I deal with is giving away 48,000 rounds of LSC 123 grain FMJ 7.62 x 39

Giving it away? Flip it at a super cheap number for your buddies, or shoot it through a gun you don’t give a shit about. An AK will digest it. 48k rounds even if made of shit, are still worth something…

Was buying 1000 at a time for 49 bucks from cheaper than dirt a dozen years ago.
In an AK, they never jammed.
Fired 1000's.

Agreed. Yes, they're raffling it off. Say it's worth 15000+ at retail. Even more than shooting it, I'd just like to look at in my warehouse.

forgot the most important part - manufacture is Barnaul. Never run into this maker myself. (Not that I wouldn't take the pallet if I win it, just trying to understand more its true worth / quality.)

Do not get lacquer coated ammunition because they can get stuck in the chamber

Just for the record, most German WW2 weapons used steel because of the shortage of copper needed to make brass. If the weapon is well maintained I do not believe it should have much problem with it as long as the cartridges are relatively well made (there's plenty of shit brass out there too). Because the biggest difference is the elasticity (for lack of better term) of the case and its ability to expand to form a good seal with the chamber and prevent blow back of propellant gases, if you use these rounds in a weapon that doesn't take steel case into consideration in design you tend to end up with more carbon and a dirty action. Or at least that's what I've seen.

Steel cased ammo does not usually work in revolvers that use ACP ammo requiring 1/2 moon clips.
Also, they are brutal on pistol extractors.
I have had to replace several.
But, I was also burning 4 to 500 rounds thru them every weekend.
Other than that, flawless in my AK.
My AR does jamb every once in awhile with them.
This was from using Wolf and Tula.

This is what I would use for an AK, I believe the loose tolerances on the AK make it a good fit and I don't think it will have any issues. I would shoot steel case, if nothing else was available in other calibers, but I don't buy steel case for anything but the else.
I wouldn't turn this down if someone tried to give it to me...
