Is it true that aliminum ammo is bad for your gun or rifle?
- Anonymous1 year agoFavorite Answer
In hundreds of thousands of rounds of shooting, the only squib load I have ever had with factory loaded ammo was Speer .45 ACP with an aluminum case.
I doubt the case material had anything to do with it, but low priced ammo with poor quality control might.

Not if you are using the correct ammo for that gun. The aluminum is the casing that holds the powder charge and the primer.

Aluminum work hardens and get brittle, Cases split and can leave metallic residue in the receiver, which is not removable by standard cleaning methods. Many ranges will not permit aluminum cased ammo to be used. Aluminum is also not as easily recycled as brass. Aluminum will also corrode, creating a dangerous round. Brass cased ammo is typically still good after 50 - 100 years.

its ballistically poor due to its light density

Not bad for your firearm. Manufactured soley as a cheap form of ammunition, non reloadable. You can still save the hulls and recycle them though!
