I have the same question, only I'm shooting 7.62x39 thru a Mini Thirty. I'm not worried about steel casings, so what is the best of the cheapo!
My first purchase was 60 rounds of Herters 123 gr HP. I had abou 10 of these that failed to fire on the first try.
Bought 50 rounds of brass cased Hornady SSTs. All fired just fine.
So, what about Tul? Or, any of the others? Any better than the others. I like the $5 price for plinking.... Just hate having so many FTFs.
So she says "sure Honey, I agree, you DO need a new deer rifle..." And that, boys, is how I ended up with new living room furniture!
