Safe yes, will it feed or eject correctly is questionable.

I am curious, as I did not realize that steel core was questionable with regard to it ejecting and feeding correctly. This would be good to discuss. I figure since M855 is partially, or in some circles actually considered steel core, that this was not a problem.

Explain yourself.

Um.. I think he meant steel cased. Steel CORE ammo is just fine... as it would have zero to do with feeding or extraction.

steel cased, core, or jacket is fine.

The only thing steel core is not good for is metal target, which some ranges dont allow to to wear and sparks

It is safe IF you are not standing in front of the muzzle.
