    This may have been posted 2 or 3 times already - I'm not going to download your PDF to find out. A search will come up with this....

    Brass, if I wanted to shoot steel I would get an AK.

    My AR's dont like steel casings, especially Wolf ammo. I have had them split at the neck and really lock up in the chamber. I wont shoot that crap anymore. Brass for me whatever the cost.
