Just wondering about these was going to stock up on .308 and 7.62x54r ammo by Tulammo. Is the a bad idea? Can you store these for a Long time? What are the Pros and Cons about steel Casings?

Pro: Tula-Ammo is cheap at Wal-Mart.

Con: Due to the texture of the finish on the shell casing, it's slightly more difficult to load into magazines.

I've shot a bunch of Tula in my XDM45 and haven't encountered any problems.

I am sure it lasts as long as any other stored properly; cool & dry. I just think it's crap ammo, but hey, for SHTF, why not?

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.

Pros:

It's cheap, it is just as reliable as any other blasting ammo, and it won't harm your pistol.

Cons:
It's not reloadable (at least, it's not advised, and is difficult if you decide to do it anyway), and some ranges won't allow it for a variety of reasons (mainly ignorant/lazy reasons, at that).

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.
