That’s a good thing, not a bad thing.


  1. 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?

  2. One of my cats does look a little guilty . . . . Nah, it's the lacquer.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Chris. The manual is silent on the subject. The extractor is good to go, but I'll keep on checking it.
