Never had a problem with steel cased ammo. This shoots much cleaner than the Tula stuff I used to buy. For the price, I bought 2 cases. Went through one case already and no issues.
Don't know how they manufacture this stuff but the chalky crap on the outside of the casings made it impossible to load my CZ scorpion mags to capacity. They would bind up after about 10-12 rounds to the point I thought I was going to break the lips. That being said I didn't have one malfunction out of the 250 rounds of it I shot.
This is literally the worst ammo in the world. I promise. Buy this if you want to practice malfunction drills and get rounds stuck in the chamber that have a ogice that is often too large.
Never tried steel cased ammo, but since it was Winchester and very economical, I tried it. Ruger LC9S, SR9C, 9E and a very old P89. In every gun it ran faultlessly, was very accurate, powerful and clean burning. A real test was a full 15 round mag in the P89, since the steel does not glide as easily on itself as brass and a full mag has a lot of pressure on the loads. no problem feeding or ejecting. Totally surprised by the high quality.
