Default TulAmmo???

Steel cased, the 9mm 115gr runs great for me. Was shooting Federal and Winchester as well, but the TulAmmo was very accurate. How much wear can steel cased ammo do to my Glock? Heard its not best idea to shoot steel cased - thoughts?

I shoot WPA steel xase 9mm all the time, no worries. I also shoot WPA and Wolf (actually I think Wolf makes WPA) in my AR too.

Got a RIA Tactical 9mm on order just so I can shoot a 1911 for $8 for 50 rounds.

Just clean your pistol when it needs it, keep the moving parts oiled and you should be ready.

The stuff stored in spam cans may have a lacquer coating that can build up in the chamber. The steel case I have purchased "by the box" has not given me any problems due to lacquer.

I, too, am indecisive about Russian ammo. But with an AK 47 and the price of ammo I am leaning toward the purchase of Wolf 7.62x39 steel casing. AK's eat anything.

I don't trust Tullammo one bit. We have had countless light strikes on many pistols and barrel bulges when using them in two of our glocks. We had to discontinue using it for our upcoming All steel Tournament this weekend.

I personally will not run steel cased or aluminum cased ammo thru any of my weapons. I know people use a lot of it without any problems but I don't like the idea of steel against steel and brass was chosen for a reason. Brass has a natural lubricity to it, it expands and seals very well, it is much softer then the surrounding material so it will not damage the weapon, it is also reloadable which is important to me as a reloader.

From what I have learned about TulAmmo is that the lacquer problems of the past have been resolved and the steel casing is now a "softer" steel. Any steel casing will not be as hard as the barrel. Ditto for aluminum.

The biggest problem for steel is not the hardness tearing up your gun, but the potential for the steel shavings to muck up the works in a gun. Brass (and aluminum) will scar without shaving, whereas steel will shave off and those little particles can fall into the wrong places. So that reinforces the recommendation to clean your gun well after each use of any steel cased ammo.

Any bets this reply opens a can of worms?

I will agree with you about the aluminum but the steel used to make firearms is not as hard as many believe. Firearms manufacturers are more interested in machinability for production.

Tulammo is good, cheaP practice ammo that will not harm your weapon in any way.

It's dirty, but you're supposed to clean your weapon anyway, so that really shouldn't matter.

The U.S, manufactured tens of millions of steel cased cartridges during WW2, with no problems whatsoever.
