    What is the difference between the two. The only difference I see is the MC is 2 grains heavier and has a lacquered case, and its cheaper. I've also heard however, that you should stay away from lacquer as it'll eventually stick in your chamber.

    The spent shell from Wolf MC I’m looking at now does not appear to be lacquered – at least compared to the Barnaul case I’m comparing it to. The MC shell may have a light coat of something over the steel.

    Lacquered shells are not a problem provided you clean the chamber well with a brush and solvent after each session. My Yugo and Russian SKSs function fine with lacquered shells after a good cleaning. My AK uses only MC and it’s functioned perfectly after hundreds of rounds. The Barnaul and Brown Bear are used in the SKSs only. I don’t mix the shell case types during a session.

    Don't worry TOO much about it then. I'm not sure if it's corrosive or not, though, so you might want to take that into account. In fact... I think that's the difference between the two types of ammo.
