    Your AK will eat them like candy.

    Go shoot away!

    No worries, that's the kind of ammo they were designed for. It just doesn't work well in guns designed for brass cases.

    The lacquer coated cartridges last longer in storage than the polymer coated type,and work better.

    mini 14 AND ak'S ARE DIFFERENT. Same with AR's using steelcase ammo-- either it works, or it doesn't.

    You should have no issues with polymer or lacquer in a AK. My preference is polymer (cleaner, no red residue- and polymer is heat resisitant).

    Lacquer ammo runs thru my MAK like **** thru a goose. Almost like it was MADE for it.

    There isn't much, at all, that causes problems for the AK. True battle rifle.
