    Needing to buy some ammo to feed my wasr - what is the difference between polymer and laquer case coatings? Is one better than the other? Or is one dirtier than the other? Thanks!

    Lacquer-coated cases are just dipped in lacquer to prevent rust. Not sure how they apply polymer, but it's a different material.

    The polymer is a little slicker. Doubt it makes any difference in extraction from an AK, and lacquer hardly causes as much buildup as some people think, but I'm partial to the polymer.

    That said, no difference as long as you clean the gun. Get what's cheapest.

    Gracias Deus- that's the thing - they're both the same price so I'll just go with the polymer all things being equal.
