    Default Steel case ammo getting stuck in cylinder.

    I have some tula 38 special. And it sucks lol. Any thing i can do besides chuck it? I tried to pull it. So i could reload into brass casings. It gets stuck in both my revolvers.

    i personally won't shoot the steel case ammo in my revolvers......

    it might make trade or swap material to someone down the line that will put up with its issues in exchange for availability and costs........

    I only fire steel case in my Chi-Com SKS. The steel expands with the shot and stays tight. Brass expands and the contracts so it will eject easier. How much do you have? 100 rounds aren’t too bad to deal with but a 1000 would be hell. Try spraying some silicone into the cylinders and see if that helps.

    I have about 100 rounds left. I'll give the silicone a try. Thanks.

    Chamber walls, - including revolver cylinders - should be kept dry and free of lubricants and oils when firing cartridges. It's that pesky "pressure thingy" I read about in one of my manuals, but by all means do as you are advised via internet.

    Can you say "unintended hydraulic effect"? I knew you could.

    Just get rid of it! Why waste time with junk ammo when you load your own?

    Agreed but that’s why I say silicone. It’s dry and micro thin. It’s not a liquid after the propellant evaporates and there’s no residue, just a slippery finish.

    Save it for SHTF stash. You'll always have a reserve. I got some of that steel ammo in .357.
    Yes, it's bloody awful.

    Save the crappy troublesome ammo for a time when you might most need it to work well?
