    If you donít have the issue with brass itís probably due to cylinder fouling. Steel and brass donít expand the same or even at the same rate. Steel ammo will allow more blowback in the cylinder, combine that grit with the rough casing and you got yourself an issue. I shoot steel case in my AR platforms but I clean after every 150-250 rds. Donít have a problem with those due to the force of the extraction and I keep them clean. I also donít shoot anything other than polymer coated, no lacquer. Revolvers you are using your fingers to push them out. Steel case have their place but I wouldnít use it in a revolver.

    i have those little .22 Ruger single action pistols that, because the specs are so tight, a few rounds in every cylinder get stuck. .22 rounds wonít just drop in the cylinders, you have to gently push them all the way in. Both Federal and Winchester ammo are the same way. I need to polish the cylinder bores to help with that.

    Most of the ammo I have shot in my ARs (.223) is steel cased Wolf or Tula. All of the ammo I've shot in my SKS and my AR with the 7.62x39 upper has been steel cased Wolf or Tula.

    I have had one(1) jam with the AR and none with the SKS. The jam in the AR was caused by a tiny piece of steel that I believe was the punch out for the flash hole. It lodged against the bullet and would not allow the round into battery. That's the only issue I've had with it.

    I've never had occasion to buy steel cased ammo in any other round.

    I think my Hi-points eat up that winchester steel. But that stuff is so dirty. I find it now and then on my brass round ups. My son will run it in his Sccy.

    You’ll probably never have extraction issues with the 7.62x39 due to the tapered case design unless the extractor itself is messed up.
