Interesting read about steel vs brass

http://www.luckygunner.com/labs/bras...el-cased-ammo/
i have shot quite a bit of steel cased ammo (tulammo) and have had no problem to speak of. I prefer to shoot brass, but at this point when you can find "cheap" ammo and it goes bang, then why not shoot it.

How much would you say you've shot out of a single gun?

I shoot brass, mostly because I can reload it now.

Thanks!

Barnard, BAT, Stiller and Surgeon are names I hear a lot of.

I am planning on making, or attempting to make, my own rifle action. We shall see how it goes.

I shot 500 rounds out of my AR. Spikes upper, joebob bcg, arstoner 1x9 twist ar stoner barrel. not a single failure to eject or jam.

In fact the only failure to eject I have had was with American Eagle Ammo.

Does anyone have any experience with Blunderbuss'? I am considering trying to buy one just to have one, but I don't know what to look for.
