I have shot tulammo before, although i don't have a problem with that brand, I prefer brass so it can be reloaded.

^^^^me too!

I have 3 grand in my rifle, I can afford the difference for brass ammo. I realize a large number of folks use it without incident, but I never will.

Default Never had a problem

I just went to the range today and shot 50 rounds of tulammo through my G23 with zero problems. I have used this ammo frequently and have had no issues. It runs dirty?? I dont care about that because i ballistol all my babies after every range trip. Plus, i havent noticed a difference with the dirty issue from this or any other ammo.

I'm not worried about it in my firearms, because as mentioned, I clean after every trip to the range anyway, so even if it's cheap, dirty powder or the casing leaves metal in the moving parts, it all gets washed away anyway before it can do any real harm. I've shot just about every different kind of ammo available through my 92FS, and I do not see any abnormal wear on it anywhere. ...and it was a police issue weapon before I bought it, so it was used hard before I got it as well.

But what worries me is long term storage of the ammo. I like to keep a healthy amount of ammo around so I'm not "hand to mouth" on ammo. If I want to go to the range, I'll buy a few hundred rounds, put it away, and shoot some of the oldest ammo I have.

however, to save some money, I have bought the cheaper russian made ammo, but because of that, I've stopped my First in, first out of my ammo inventory, and will use up the steel stuff first.

Many 7.62x54R rounds have been around probably since before you were born^. They are steel cased and still shoot fine, although the primers are corrosive. Personally I shoot brass in all my hand guns, mainly because I reload, but I shoot whatever I can buy cheapest out of my Mosin.

I shoot brass out of my handguns. But the main long guns i shoot are my Ak and my .22, so i shoot cheap sh!t throught my Ak and .22s are cheap what ever you buy. Compared to centerfire rounds. But i just bought a Mosin a couple weeks ago and i can buy 20 rounds for $3.50 but its old surplus corrosive ammo. But a little windex down the barrel after shooting and it will be good as new. The ammo i bought for my Ak is brass but the primer is corrosive so the cleaning is nothing new to me for corrosive ammo. Its just real cheap to shoot and fun at the same time.
