99.9 percent (almost always 100 percent) of the many thousands of Russian (or some Ukr.) rounds used in my AKMs, VZ and Makarov have been totally reliable - and caused zero damage.
This includes about 500 rds. in my Sig P6 and S&W 3rd Gen. 6904—-
A little cleaning of the chamber (requires a few seconds), removes extra residue which builds up Outside the rigid steel cases.
Laziness is the only actual issue.

Both had been used by “State of KY” ....marked on the buttstock’s silver sticker.
Used only 2,000 rds. (Sold it only to find cash for a first LEJungle Carbine ).
Alll ammo was Russian Silver Bear.
—- Absolutely as reliable as my VZ and imported AKMs.——
Apparently the hard Berdan primers in Russian .223 works as well as our softer Boxer primers.
