Because he doesn't like how messy it is?

What's the point of owning an AK if you're afraid of getting it dirty?

Yeah, all those Russians with fucked up aks from shooting what the gun was designed to do....

I've shot a shitload of lacquered ammo and have had zero issues.

Thanks for not contributing to the higher price of ammo, dick-nuts.

Neither do I...not because i won't, but because they won't...and I'm not going to detune them so they will.

The AK, and the other hand, will shoot whatever it can chamber.

My thought as well.

I'd say it's his gun and it's nobodys fucking business what he shoots through it.
I personally shoot a lot of laquered ammo and have never had any problems myself.

poorer?

I never liked Wolf .223 because I was worried the smelly lacquer shit would gum everything up.
Then ammo got expensive and they came out with the polymer stuff...now it's my primary plinking .223

your rifles are defective, and you should make necessary repairs.
Link Posted: 2/15/2013 10:51:37 AM EDT
Maybe it's not the steel case or lacquer he;s really worried about? Maybe it's the steel-jacketed bullets, which do wear barrels faster than copper-jacketed bullets do?

I dunno, how about you don't get wrapped around the axle about what other people do with their shit?

If somebody can actually get that stuff to melt from a hot chamber I would be absolutely flabbergasted.

The lacquer melts and smokes a little.
I've never seen it as an issue in an AK, but people used to post pics here of their AR BCGs and chambers all gummy from shooting Wolf.

I can't hear about AK ammo snobbery without thinking of the guy I was in a rifle class with some years ago. He was running an AK, and "splurged" on a case of nice, shiny new brass cased Winchester 7.62x39 ammo for the class. Jam after jam.... torn rim after torn rim... the extractor was just tearing right through the soft brass. We scrounged him up some cheap-ass Combloc steel "garbage ammo", and he finished the class without a hitch.

When I had an AK, I *preferred* lacquered ammo over the gray poly coated stuff.

Golden Tiger w/ Lacquer FTW.

ETA - I still shot the gray crap though.

Wrapped around the axle?

Hardly, brah.

I'm simply trying to help a gun newb.

Every malfunction I've had with AK's was with Russian ammo, to include seized chambers.

Every AK variant that I have seen that runs like a champ runs on Sako brass-cased Finnish military ammo, with copper-jacketed projectiles.

Bi-metal projectiles will wear your bore out quickly if you shoot high volume, so there is good reason to avoid it if you want any kind of accuracy life from your blaster.

I'd tell him he is right, and he should only shoot 75+ cents a round BRASS CASED 7.62x39.

Tell him to avoid this place like the plague.
Judging by some of the responses, at least half of the "experts" here have never been in the same room with an AK.
Link Posted: 2/15/2013 11:18:43 AM EDT
I would thank him, more for me.
Link Posted: 2/15/2013 11:20:07 AM EDT
I wouldn't say a thing. His gun. His ammo. His money. As an adult you have the right to do as you want. Personally I think steel case ammo is crap. Others love it... I reload, most I know do not. If I had an AK I'd shoot brass only so I could reload it.
Link Posted: 2/15/2013 11:21:13 AM EDT
Huh? Has he tried the "blowtorch an empty case" test yet?

Possibly from the hot gasses dumping into the action? The ammo needs to be manufactured to the characteristics of the rifle. If lacquer coating worked in DI rifles, we'd be using it.
