Sorry for not posting informationally lately, been quite busy. Today's topic is choosing practice ammo in brass vs steel case. What's the difference? For those of you just starting off and looking for practice ammo may start looking at pricing for different types. "Why is this box of 100 rounds of 556 4$ cheaper than this other box of 100?" In regards to ammo there are many variables that affect pricing. The biggest is choosing steel case or brass.
Brass: the most common casing type. Brass is reliable and overall best performance as a casing. It can be reloaded several times to make new bullets and are typically used to make more accurate ammunition. Brass is a softer metal and is easier on your weapon.
Steel case: the cheapest of all casing types. Cant be used to reloaded. Typically not safe to use at ranges for most bullets contain steel in them that damage ranges. Can be corrosive to your weapon. Harder on your weapon because of steel casing and also wears out your barrel faster. Can be accurate enough depending on situation but not the most reliable or dependable round.
Aluminum: weakest of all casing types but the lightest. Typically only good for pistol calibers. Not as reliable as brass. Prices can be cheaper than brass.
Above in the photos is the results of a test that @luckygunner completed on 4 of the same ar by shooting 10,000 rounds of certain ammo through each. Only the federal is brass and it came out on top. The others are common steel case ammo that were shown to jam and wear out the barrels before the end of the test. You can buy replacement barrels with the money you save on buying cheap steel ammo that will result in overall cost effectiveness but be sure to evaluate your given situation. Dont shoot 10,000 rounds of steel case and not replace the barrel of an ar. This would result in terrible accuracy and poor training. Some weapon platforms handle steel case better than others (especially russian weappns) AK's, SKS's and mosin nagant's are excellent for steel case and designed to use it. ARs are not (can be done with replacement barrels). #staystrapped#staydeadly#ammo#boogaloo#gunownersofamerica#newshooter#gunnerd#gun#progun#2a
