It gets bad mouthed by many. It is cheap,but has never failed to go boom. Can't reload it, but that's really the only drawback. The smell is different. Might be dirtier compared to high quality stuff, but not really more so than any other cheap stuff.
He is asking about rifle ammo not hand gun. Although a comparison is helpful. Anyways, I would just buy one box of each and try it out. My .308 HATES steel case. It loads fine but I can not eject the shell unless I have a brick. NOT GOOD! My .308 is an old Mossberg 800A.
I have never seen any that really impressed me for accuracy. In my SKS, I'll shoot it all day long, MAYBE in my AR but in 5 years have yet to try it in that platform. In my handguns, no thanks. In my Rem 700, no way.
