    Lucky Gunner should be applauded for definitely going above and beyond the call of duty for doing this test. Thank you to them.

    I have always elected to shoot brass from firearms that were designed for brass. If I had an AK I would not hesitate to shoot steel from it. I think they did miss the mark when they implied that the average shooter would not go through 10,000 rounds. When you consider that the federal ammo boxes that I get have 420 rounds in them, and how quick one of those ammo boxes goes, it will not take olong to go through 10,000 rounds. I would like to see some testing on temparture ranges and longtivity. I try not to overheat my barrel. I am sure most of you have melted gun cases by laying a gun on them to cool done while you shoot something else.
