Russian - MP-Pistol Forum

Russian

This is a discussion on Russian within the MP Ammunition forums, part of the Smith & Wesson MP Forum category; I see where some people are reporting good luck with shooting Wolf Poly through their M&P's, thoughts?...

I have no problems with Russian ammo. If I can get it for a good price I use it.

Excuse me... I did once. With a Kimber double stack polymer frame 1911. They would cause a jam every round. The problem was when the rounds transitioned from double stack to single stack the friction of the cases would cause them to bind. A wiping of carnauba wax and removal of the excess solved that and then they functioned 100%.

I heard that they use a corrosive primer that could cause damage. Of course I tend to think cleaning and lube after use should prevent that. But what the heck do you save in buying Russian? I'd rather buy American anyway

Somebody is telling you stuff that doesn't know what they are talking about.

New Russian ammo is fine, no problem, they haven't used corrosive primers in probably the last 30 years.

Surplus ammo is a whole different ballgame, the old surplus stuff should always be considered corrosive, no big problem as long as the gun is properly cleaned after use.

Here's an in depth review and test of new steel cased ammo, talks honestly about the advantages and disadvantages of steel case ammo.

I wouldn't use it personally............for the few bucks you save, it's just not worth it. I'll stick to the brand name stuff, who's reputations are a bit more trustworthy.

Shoot steel all the time in my 762x39 AR.
Avg 5 bux a box is considerably less than about 15 for brass.
I have shot steel case in my M&P shields both 40 and 45.
Have also run aluminum and hand loads so far they have gobbled up all it without a hiccup.
In fact the ONLY malfunctions my MPs have had was on WWB ammo somI do not purchase WWB in any caliber rifle or pistol.

I`ve shot both american and russian ammo... and sometimes, the russian ammo shot better than the american ammo. I dont care how dirty one ammo is over another, as i clean my guns when i`m done shooting for the day. Not cleaning your gun after using it is like dirty dish`s piling up on the kitchen counter... not in my house. A cleaned gun is a happy gun.
