Default Steel Ammo

So when I first started doing research about guns prior to my first purchase, a friend of mine told me to never ever get steel cased ammunition no matter what gun it is.

Being of a little stingy with my money, I saw and bought 200rds of 5.56 Tula Ammo. I've heard it's not bad to shoot them but the opposite as well.

I'm gonna throw this analogy out there and forgive me if it sounds stupid. Buying a nice gun is a bit similar to buying a BMW. It's fancy, it performs well, and it will be fine as long as you take care of it and keep up with its maintenance.

Does that thought add up and make sense when using Tula Ammo or any steel cased rds at that? As long as I take care of my gun it should be alright, correct?

OR, is it more along the lines of this analogy. Your gun is like a BMW, what you feed into it will affect it's performance. Always use fill up with premium unleaded and never anything less of quality. Would you guys say the same about your firearms with the type of ammo you use?
