Before anyone wastes both our times, I searched, no results.

Is steel cased (wolf 145-150 gr) ammo OK to use in one of Century's new Cetme/G3 style guns?

I know lots of folks swear it's bad in Fals, just wonder if the same in these guns too considering I don't know where the barrels are being produced or anything about them.

Thanks in advance guys.

Roller locked, fluted chambers chew up anything you throw in there.

No worries.

it will run like a hillbilly to a mud wrestling match, and it will be about as clean, my PTR91 runs tula fine. and at $7 a mag it is fun to blast through

Not a CETME but I had a case head separation using Wolf in my 21k a few years back. No damage to the rifle. Sent it back to TSC he said it's fine quit shooting crappy ammo in your expensive rifle (or something to that effect).

We could debate this for years but I am certain this was a perfectly timed bolt bounce - OOB. Maybe in a separate thread.

I don't understand how steel cased problematic hierarchy goes as follows (strangely only 308 and 223 are problem rounds)
308>223>(5.45 = 7.62x39 = 7.65x25 = etc)

I've shot Monarch (Brown Bear) and Wolf through my C308 with no problems. Except they are very dirty.

I've never shot any steel case through a G3-type, but have also never shot anything through it that DIDN'T turn it into a sooted-up mess.

Ain't shooting steel through any of my battle rifles. Yep save a few bucks with luck but only takes one bad round to ruin a rifle.
