It is not that it is so bad, the steel case is a mild steel and "should" not harm the gun.... But steel does not give as much as brass and it can be a little more sticky in some guns. Some guns love steel some don't. I know that a lot of the competition speed shooters that are pounding thousands of 45 a month have started to shoot steel case because it is cheaper (and most only shoot factory). The ones that I have had a chance to talk to say they have not noticed any gun damage.

Test a few and see how your gun likes it and go from there...
