My only concern with steel ammo, especially the Russian brands do have a polymer coating sprayed on the cases which when fired through a hot gun will leave deposits in the chamber and mechanism. I've seen AR's lock up and fail to fire after this stuff was shot through it with regularity. They say they have changed the polymer formula and I haven't heard one way or another if it still is problematic. The cases are also harder, including the primers which have been known to fracture firing pins and break ejector claws right off. Outside of that, I guess it's okay to shoot... LOL!

I haven't got to Tul Ammo, but I did run several boxes of steel case Wolf through my duty Glock.
It left my hands filthy and I went thru some powder solvent cleaning the thing, but it was fine.

The Silver Bear steel case 5.56 is also fine for my ARs.
Many have told me to not mix brass casings while shooting steel.
Steel isn't as accurate, but close enough for range shooting or plinking.

Save the good stuff for defense, hunting, competition.
