2nd Amendment Report

I took out my Mini-14 today for the first time in several years, and tried firing cheap Russian steel-cased ammo through it (Tul-Ammo $5.27/box at Wal-Mart.) It worked perfectly! So I am done with expensive brass and keeping that rifle in mothballs, for reasons of cost.

Important disclaimer : This rifle is not a scary black color, and does not have an evil pistol grip.

    Did you them scary, ultrahigh capacity magazines?

    Why not recycle your brass? Load your own, it is cheaper and you control the quality.
    Separately, very decent group for offhand at 600 yds.

    • I reload 12 gauge, but don’t have rifle equipment.

      Holding a light rifle like a Mini-14 steady is much easier than holding a drawn #80 lb bow steady. I find that archery really helps out my rifle shooting from a standing position.

    Tulammo is great stuff. Glad to see it working in that cartridge. 7.62×39 is like 2-250 a case. I have an ASI Ruger from your home state…it is a custom rifle but I was shooting the Yugo surplus fine until it became unavailable and have switched to Tulammo, and it is still quite accurate. It will put 3 holes in coke bottle at 150y. Handloads did not do any better.

    And of course an AK will eat them up yum!

    Pretty good shooting with cheap ammo.

  7. Steel cartidges have always worked fine for me, it seems that the problem is mixing: http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/edu18.htm
