Hornady Goes Downmarket (ish) with Steel Match Ammo by Robert Farago | Nov 04, 2010 | 2 comments facebook twitter linkedin email That’s a good thing, not a bad thing. comments Chris Dumm says: November 4, 2010 at 17:48 I love cheaper *anything*, especially ammo. Steel case rims can be murder on extractors, , though, so check your owner's manual before going crazy with this stuff. I shoot nothing but Soviet-era surplus 5.45×39 in my AK-74 (which was built for steel-cased ammo) and the gunsmoke smells a lot like cat piss. Who knew it was the burning lacquer?

The extractor is good to go, but I'll keep on checking it. Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
