I blew 2 topcovers a few months ago but it was my fault by not having the correct headspace.
After resolving that, I fired off 4k Yugo with no problems at all. +1 Bonus for being able to sell the fired brass for .80 cents a pound. That lowers the cost from 5.5 cents to around 3.5 cents a shot. Can't beat that.
While some have said the 50's ammo has deep primers, my 1919 has no trouble.
Buy it till your floor cracks , then keep buying it and pile it elseware.
