Default Golden Tiger 7.62x39 ? re-loads ?

Did a search and found maybe 5 threads on AIM's GT-7.62x39.

1 or 2 people stated that people liked this better than Wolf. Im going to order something from AIM later today and was going to pick up 1k or 2k rounds. No one has said anything negative about them, so I think all is good?

As far as reloading goes - I do not have any reloading equip at all, have no experience or knowledge on the issue, but keep all fired brass - are these candidates for future loads?

Edit: Would be using this for an SKS. ammomans prices are only $5 cheaper in the end, but are for wolf - as im sure you all know

the golden tiger is steel cased and berdan primed so it isnt reloadable (in the standard sense).

would the indoor ranges that have insurance policies that ban the use of Wolf ammo allow this russian substitute? it's all lead under the jacket, right?

You have to think about WHY certain ranges ban Wolf ammo. Some ban it because of the steel case, others because of the bi-metal jacket (steel jacket with a thin copper plating on top). Golden Tiger obviously has the steel case, and I'm pretty sure they also use the bi-metal jacket too. So I'm guessing that if Wolf isn't allowed, Golden Tiger isn't either.

My range (Iron Sights in Oceanside) has a blanket brand-based ban on Wolf. Although there's steel case / steel core issues, their primary reason for it is peoples' guns blowing up on them. Of the rare cases where they've had a kaboom on the line, usually it's some guy who decides to sneak Wolf in for some cheap shooting in a handgun, and that's enough to reinforce the "we should just keep that brand banned" thoughts.

No real sweat on my end, it just pushed me into reloading. I refuse to shoot my remaining stash of Cheetah 7.62x39mm.

The indoor ranges I go to (Targetmasters West in Milpitas and Reeds in San Jose) ban all steel- and aluminum-cased ammo because it cuts down their brass resales. They say it's because it messes up their buyer's reloading machines, but steel-case ammo is easily separated out with a magnet.

The outdoor ranges (Los Altos and Stevens Creek) allow steel-case ammo, but don't allow steel-jacketed or steel-core ammo, due to fire hazards from sparks. They use a magnet on the projectile if unsure.

I've shot steel-jacketed AND -cored rifle ammo at Chabot with the staff's knowlege.

I usually dump my steel cases in the trash instead of the brass bucket, too.

The last time I was at Steven's Creek Sunnyvale R&G range located in Cupertino the new guy wouldn't let me shoot any painted tip ammo, namely my Radway .223 Green and Czech silver tip. The older guy, Ted, wasn't there that day. He didn't use a magnet though... just no painted tips.

It was the green tip M855 that got their attention, which started a discussion about whether it was steel-core or not (my friend with the ammo couldn't remember, and I held my peace), so they pulled out a magnet to check.

If you have painted tip ammo that's not steel core, it might be worth bringing a magnet to satisfy them, as they're often not very savvy on ammo details, I've found.

I shoot at an old range out in the country near Stockton they don't care what kind of ammo you shoot. In fact they don't even have a range master.
