Any type of ammo to avoid in my EVO?
« on: March 09, 2018, 12:24:50 AM »
I have a bunch of cheap range ammo, steel and/or aluminum cased, all 115gr, fmj. I dont reload so I dont, in general, collect brass. I dont shoot enough to get shorts wadded about damaging the gun by shooting cheap steel or alu ammo. Anything to avoid?

TuLa = high # of squibs.  Have had 3 in a single 50 round box.

Do a SEARCH on "evo". This has been answered before.
In God we trust; On 'starting load' we rely.

Immature reloaders ask: What's wrong with this gun?

The short answer=

Shooting steel cased ammo through your scorpion isn't really going to hurt it.  I doubt you'd ever wear out your gun with it.

Longer answer=

The quality of the ammo you are shooting (or the lack thereof) will go a long way to determine how well your gun functions (or not).

Tula is generally considered to be among the low part of bottom feeders where ammunition is concerned. Though I will recommend tula ammo before I recommend freedom munitions.  That's the lowest of the low where 9mm is concerned.

I did, searched EVO ammunition in the EVO section of forum, and came up with nothing, hence made my own thread. Don't know why, don't much care why. Seeing how this site runs, the info might be hiding in the ammo forum.

What i'll probably do is burn the cheap stuff spread out over 7 9mm and upgrade as replacement.

Search in the ammo section. ;)
I had the right to remain silent...

I shot thousands of reloads without issue...except anything with Berrys Target Hollow Point. Those jam EVERYTHING they are tried in.

Any one shoot Wolf ammo?
Their Wolf Military classic ammo is always on sale, and its steel case.  Its just a few dollars cheaper, but that can add up if you buy enough.
Thinking about picking up 500-1k, anyone have any negative thoughts.

wolf goes bang.  Good plinking ammo.  Usually a little on the dirty side where powders are concerned, but it shoots.

I wouldn't shoot aluminum cased ammo in a blow back design.  Steel case is most likely just fine, but I don't use that either.
