I can't speak on the glocks but I've talked to guys who have ran 1000s of steel through there glock no problem but my AR shows no sign of extra wear and it doesn't run awhole lot dirty in 5.56 them brass federal 5.56MississippiGlock said:That's the basic reason I ask. Steel case 10mm is the only 10 readily available at the LGS. And is obviously much cheaper. But I have also heard rumor that steel casing can damage your gun, but never heard exactly how or why
You threw me off with your Avatar change Dutchs loldutchs said:I shoot at 3 different inside ranges and they ask you everytime if you are using steel case Ammo. They will not allow it in their ranges. Quote: We had too many near serious accidents! Not worth it.
the indoor range here there a sign that says leave your brass if you rent our guns. but if you bring your own they ask you to take it with you are throw it away?dutchs said:Point well taken!! Definitely could be capitalism at work!!
Thanks shaker! That's what I really wanted to know, the actual reason people say no steel, and those people are only the indoor ranges. I knew it had something to do with them recycling the brass and didn't want steel casing mixed in, but was unaware of the other problems you mentioned.shaker223 said:Much of the steel cased ammo has steel core bullet so it tears up their back stops. I've expeimented with reloading steel cases too and the range said no because they said the cases mar/scratch the clear herculite glass that seperates stations. Also, as mentioned earlier the brass is recycled and it might as well be sorted at the beginning. Thinking that way, they might as well turn in the steel as scrap too.
