What do you think of the Czech 7.62x54R?

I've had tons of problems with the Czech silver-tip ammo I bought sticking in the chamber. I've had several people tell me I just need to clean the chamber better, others say to stick with brass cases. I've been shooting the laquered steel cased ammo, but I've seen some bimetal cased ammo that's just as cheap.

So what do you guys think?

IIRC, "bimetal" refers to the bullet jacket, not the case.

the non-lacquered cases are "copper washed."

I have only used the lacquered version of the Czech ammo, and have not had problems with it. my only disappointment was that the fireball was not a dramatic as with the Bulgarian.

I scrub my M-N chambers surgically clean, and haven't hadany problem with ANY 7.62x54R. There have been reports of rough chambers, which could cause problems.

The ads I've seen specifically say "bimetal case."

I've been wondering if the bimetal would have fewer problems since there's no laquer to gum up the works. It's just as cheap as the laquered stuff, so I think I'll just order some and see how it works.
