Ive owned my 1911 for about a month now, Ive feed everything through it from JBHP +P's to the cheapest wal-mart FMJ's and havent had a malfunction yet "knock on wood". I asked my wife to pick me up some ammo while she was at wal-mart today and she came home with TulAmmo 230gr fmj's...Steel case, ive never seen those, I usually give my superviser my brass because he reloads and when I asked him if he wanted the steel case he said "heck no" but then again he doesnt reload nickel either...something about it affecting the dyes. Anyway, I fired two clips through my pistol and it fired great, actually it seemed to chamber more smooth than some higher end stuff. I know this ammo is cheap, but does anyone know the pros/cons of the steel case? Im betting its "dirtier" than good brass ammo, it looks pretty cool though. I may have just gotten lucky with my pistol, I didnt have to sand the feed ramp to void out the 500 round "break-in" period that you sometimes need to do, its just feed it all without issue, although when I chamber the first round I notice with some ammo, usually the personal protection higher end stuff its a little "tight" when I release the slide, like it barely fits, but with this stuff it just slams home with ease...if that makes sense. srry this is a bit long winded just to get some info on this steel case ammo Wanna kill these ads?
