    I found some Hornady 220gr FMJ online
    for 30.00/50. It has coated steel cases.
    Has anyone run this through their auto
    and how did it function. Thanks.

    I have. It functions smoothly in my Ed Brown Kobra and Colt Commando.

    I have a bunch of steel cased ammo (Tula 9mm). It shoots fine but it doesn't smoothly load into the magazines. They don't slide on each other well and don't stack well. I have thought that I had a full stack (17), even showed on the mag window. I popped the ammo out and it only had 15. The steel cases tend to stick and bind on each other.

    Maybe the coating will help.
    Also, some ranges don't like the steel.

    I will try a box of 50 and see if I have the same magazine issues. Thanks for the input.
