I keep hearing that, but I've been buying Wolf brand .223's for the longest time and I've never had an extractor problem. For the price differance, get the cheap ammo and another extractor, it's still cheaper than buying full price!

If you do go the cheap stuff route, one thing I also advise is watching out for cheap Russian crap (except Wolf) that has copper jacketed steel bullets that can really but a hurting on your barrel. The copper rubs off and the steel eats up rifling like a monster.

I also have shot up about a thousand rounds of Wolf 7.62X39 in my Ruger with no problems... As far as steel core ammo, i thought that was done away with or illegal a while back. Used to get Norinco, a Chinese steel core round but the BTF says they were "cop killers"... And i would assume they are bad for most guns like mine, as they were made to shoot out of AK's and SKS which have chromed barrels.
