    I bought some at WM last week, but it was banned by the local indoor. The bullet jacket is magnetic so I wasn't allowed to shoot it.

    But some I'd bought earlier in the year was not magnetic. Emailed TulAmmo, they replied the FMJ is now an alloy of copper, steel and zink. They must be running out of AC copper and looking for a cheaper jacket. Enough steel to make really cool sparks!

    So I guess I'll just take it outside later for fresh air practice.

Anyone know of an outdoor range in or near OKC that I can go to?

    I use the Tula and Wolf for matches and outdoor plinking. Pick the cases up with a magnet. Never had any breakdowns or appreciable wear.

    The Russians have been shooting steel cased ammo for decades without problems.
    I run steel cased ammo all the time and have yet to chip an extractor.

    Seriously, that is one of the reasons they are banned at indoor ranges. There is a lot of unburned gun powder on indoor ranges and fires have been started due to the sparks, it has happened. Just sayin', have no problem with steel casings whatsoever.

    I too have seen Tula strike sparks off a backstop. I now totally understand why indoor ranges without 2A's super-scientific backstop would ban it.

    I think that steel cases are slightly harder on extractors than brass cases but by the time it causes a part breakage, you've already saved way more than $extractor.

    My AR used to have problems with Tula where it would occasionally jam up really tight after firing and I'd have to mortar the thing to get the empty case out. I bought an AR chamber brush and actually cleaned the bore properly and the problem magically went away.

    Actually, that is the second concern for indoor ranges, fires can be handled most times. What is of utmost concern is the steel jacketed bullets may hit a support in the back and come back down range, and trust me it has happened at indoor ranges. That is the primary concern, if you will. I have many stories to tell on this subject of the steel bullets, not the casings, but not needed now.

    Every firearm Ive own shoots steel no problem. If it doesn't then it goes to the classifieds, period.

    I'm all for rumors that steel cased ammo is bad for your weapon. Supply and demand, the less people using it the cheaper it will stay for me.

    The way ammo prices are these days, that's all I shoot is steel. I don't ever have a problem in ak, ar, glock, whatever. The cheaper the better.

    This. Cold but in decent weather it is a lot of fun. Primative as a range should be, but cheap. Bring your own targets. if you are gonna be there a while. There are programs to print 8.5x11 ones all day for the price of ink and paper. Same goes for any range I suppose.
