    I would shoot the 3 boxes you purchased by mistake. But not buy any more. Nothing but brass for me too.

    What a great choice for your first gun, I call mine Special Favorite. I have shot plenty of steel case ammo including Tula and never had a problem in my PT 92.

    thank you all for welcoming me to your community, a little update about the magazine i bought last night, greg cotte has it already shipped and given me a shipping number. That's awesome. I read everyones comments about the steel casing, I think I will give them a try but a through cleaning before and after. I will ask the ranges if they are willing if i can just pick up the casings after myself and not mix it in with their brass (I dont know if thats the reason they wont let you so they dont have to sort). I am planning on getting training even maybe the concealed carry license (that's in the future not yet) as soon as i find more ammo.

    Let the addiction begin, my first was the PT-99 same as your PT-92 only with adjustable sights. I think these are one of the best guns out there. They generally will eat any ammo just fine. I agree with double checking with the range. The indoor ranges around be do not want steel core bullets because they can damage the bullet traps, steel cases are generally okay.

    Are you talking about the top screw on the drivers side? The smaller diameter screw that actually seats into a bushing under the grip and into the frame? That also holds a spring retainer in place.

    I've fired steel case ammunition from a variety of semi autos I've owned: Glocks, Sigs, Ruger's, 1911's, EAA, Taurus, Beretta, etc.. I've had 0 issues with the ammo. Russian made steel cased bi-metal jacketed ammo fires dirty. After every range session, I clean my firearms so it's not an issue. The newer polymer coated steel cases don't gum up the chamber like the old production lacquer coated steel cases used to.

    Ranges don't allow Russian steel case ammo because...

    1. The steel cases aren't reloadable. Some ranges sell abandoned brass cases to commercial reloaders, creating a small revenue stream for range operations. The labor for separating out steel from brass eats into that revenue stream.

    2. The bi-metal projectile is lead core, soft steel jacket that is copper washed. The claim is that the steel jacket eats up backstops. The most plausible reason for banning bi-metal jacket ammo is that it can spark against the backstop, and ignite range dust at the backstop.

    Before I learned to reload, I used lots of Russian steel cased bi-metal jacketed ammo. I now pay a little extra for reloadable brass cases. Even if you don't reload, pick up your spent brass cases. Save them for the possibility you might reload. If you know you won't reload, save the spent brass cases for trading fodder at gun shows.
