Yes Yes, I know already its garbage, varies too greatly in load, crappy brass, poor trajectory and accuracy. However is it safe? I'm just a bit concerned about putting it through a 60-80 year old rifle, like a Turkish 1903 for example. Thanks.

Other than the fact it's corrosive (clean accordingly) I've had no problems with it. In my rifle it's accurate out beyond 200 yards.

If it is corrosive, take a small cheap plastic funnel and some "sudsy ammonia" to the range. When you are done shooting, pour some the ammonia down the barrel from the receiver end. This will neutralize the nasty stuff from the ammo until you get home to give it a proper cleaning. This info is from the C&R crowd who know about this better than I.

Supposedly, even letting the gun wait until you get home can cause damage. I am sure that there will be many here who disagree, but why turn your barrel black if you don't have to?

Good ammo, I have shot quite a bit of it 39/41/44/49 with no problems or duds. Ammo isn't hot as stated and I find it more pleasent shooting than the 198 gr Ss load. Accuracy is very good thru my Turk 98/22 and GEW 98's.
