just as good as any, you will see LOTS of negative steel case sayers even tho they never shot 1 rd of it. It is no dirtier then name brand ammo. The steel case is really soft steel and will not harm your extractor any worse than the hi-class brass. Do not use lacquered coated because you will have problems with shells fte, use phosphate coated and you should have no problems and if you do have problems your pistol is the problem. The target below was shot at 50yds two handed rest with my 2000$ Baer. If all the negative you hear is true I wouldn't use this pistol to fire cheap russian ammo, as you can see it is very accurate as well. The 3 or so flyers are the first 3 shots and are within 2" of the center shots.
