Aluminum Gas Checks
« on: March 31, 2020, 09:14:12 pm »
Gentlemen,  I think this has been addressed before, but is anyone using aluminum gas checks instead of copper?  If so, any difference in performance?  Need some .30 caliber checks and thought I'd check before I order.

All I've used for years.  https://www.sagesoutdoors.com/   The only difference I've noted is that they're cheaper.

What calibers do you use them on?  I need some in .30, but I'll eventually need some in .45 for the .45-60 and .45-70 bullets, too.

I doubt you'll notice any difference unless you're doing some serious bench rest shooting. I've only used the .30 cal, so far. They also have copper, if you prefer.
