A: This ammo does have a lacquer coating, but there is not any truth to the myth that it can "gum up" a chamber. Steel cases do not expand like brass cases, and there will be additional fouling in the chamber because these cases do not seal against the chamber walls like brass does. This is mistaken for the lacquer coating causing issues.

A: Steel cased ammunition is safe and can be reliable in any properly manufactured and maintained weapon. It is recommended to clean the chamber in between shooting brass cased and steel cased ammunition, because of the different ways that each type behaves as it is fired.
