Lucky Gunner has undertaken a very impressive look at Brass vs Steel cased ammo for the M4-style carbine. They did a great job of mitigating variables and recording data. So much so, that this report is going to tell you a lot more than whether steel or brass cased ammo is preferable. I don’t know if they intended to from the outset, but they’ve provided the shooting community with a much larger look at several brands of ammunition and how they perform and affect the carbine.
It’s well laid out, in an easy-to-read format with plenty of photos, videos, and graphs. But there’s no point in me extracting tidbits of data from their report to provide here as it’s a rather vast resource that I’m sure gunners and manufacturers will reference for some time to come. It’s well worth a full read. No, I take that back. This is a must read if you are serious about the carbine.
I am very impressed. Well done gentlemen.
