For those who are looking for non-corrosive ammo, I just received a notice that Aim has PPU 7.62x54R in stock at $13.95/20.
That's just weird. I can (sort of) understand diallowing steel-cored BULLETS, but steel CASES?my range won't allow steel cased ammo.
Maybe if it hasn't rained in, say, a month.For what it's worth, I believe that the Herters is aluminum cased. This particular range also does not allow steel jacketed bullets. They claim that it can spark and ignite the range trash.
Indoor rangeMaybe if it hasn't rained in, say, a month.
Otherwise, a bit far-fetched. Especially when the bullet is going to end up hitting and passing through the bare earth that defines the impact zone on the backstop at just about ANY gun range, and will end up somewhere between several inches to a foot inside the DIRT. Dirt doesn't burn, in my experience.
If you happen to shoot at the City Dump, all bets are off, though.
Also , If you believe what you see on TV, the COPPER-JACKED, LEAD CORE bullets they shoot all over the place also spark if they hit just about ANYTHING (except the bad guy, of course).
