I as well as you know the outrageous prices of .308 ammo these days. My question concerns the cheaper steel cased ammo run through an A4.
I have thousands & thousands of rounds run through my DLO A4 already without any problems. Knock wood! I'm really afraid to start running steel cased ammo through it now!
I'm asking for experience from everyone that has run the russian stuff through their A4s. I'm talking full auto and I mean thousands of rounds! Any info will be appreciated!!!!

I ran 500 rounds of Wolf through my A4 just to see what would happen. I had to tighten up the headspace two clicks to get reliable operation, but then it ran just fine.

I have also run many thousands of the old Norinco copper-washed steel cased ammo with no problems except it broke several firing pins. Since they are cheap and easy to replace, I don't regard that as a significant downside. I would break one per shoot as a rule, then have no further problems.
