This kind of thing seems to be one of those internet myths that is repeated over and over again by folks who have no actual experience until it somehow becomes the "truth". How many times has Tok ammo been fired in a Mauser C96 without a blowup? Better yet, how many times has one blown up? Anybody actually hear of a catastrophic failure from shooting Tok ammo? I have never read of one. There is a guy in Florida who relines Broomhandles and he says it is okay to shoot Tok ammo in the Broomhandle. If the above poster Clark is the same guy I think he is, he would have blown up a Broomhandle or two by now just to see if he could blow one up.
