I found that the brass cased Russian repack .45 was fairly clean, at least when compared with the steel cased WWII GI ball. I've burned quite a bit of both and have found the steel cased ammo to be completely reliable and as new looking as the day it was made.
I'll generally take at least one spam can (600 rounds) to the range, and shoot it all. The dirt really cakes on but the deposits are soft and the gun is easily cleaned. I only wish I'd bought more of it!
To my mind, the only drawback to the WWII USGI steel cased .45 is that the cases are not reloadable. You might reconsider it as stocks should continue to appear on the market from time to time. I recommend it.

As far a cast bullets go the lead buildup in the comp is a bitch to get out even if you use the comp spray.

I have to admit that I wondered why I would shoot the corrosive primed surplus when I can buy new non-corrosive for the same money ? I didn't buy any for that reason . I realize that it's just a matter of cleaning , but I took the easy way out . Just lazy I guess

(Remember Phil, reloading is a hobby, you cant really save any money doing it unless you shoot 5000 rounds a year or more )
