I have a couple boxes of old brass UMC 7.62x39. The bullets are loose in the shell in some of them, the bullet can be wobbled and/or spun around in some of the cases. Is this stuff safe to shoot, or will it possible cause injury or damage my AK?

Send them to me and I'll find out!

Really without knowing the storage conditions, and seeing/feeling the cartridges, its all up to you if you feel like risking it or not

But some of us are a little more daring (cheap) when it comes to what we'll fire
