You should watch the video where they tested TulAmmo, Wolf, and brass. The wolf and brass made it to 10,000 round mark. The TulAmmo caused a complete gun failure by 5000+ rounds and couldn't complete the testing. That was using 3 identical guns to.

I did see that. Pretty good comparison of ammo. That's currently my stock. Wpa

I use it all the time to make holes in paper and it works fine! Is it dirty? Yes a bit, but I clean my guns after a range secession so what? Its affordable, seems reasonably accurate and it works well in training exercises, essentially all I ask for. In a SHTF situation I'll take all I can get!

Same here, no problems at all with Tula in my rifle or pistols. In fact I have quite a bit in the safe right now and I'll shoot it before U dig into my Federal stash.

Folks, dirty is a relative thing. I found a new benchmark...PPU from Serbia. Now that is some nasty stuff, almost like shooting black powder. Was the only thing I could get
If I must deal with that nasty stuff, I think I'll just shoot my New Army.

the guys who had issues with it in your glocks/1911s...any work done to those guns? I had issues with some brands of ammo that had harder primers after I cut a few coils of the hammer spring in my Beretta. man was that a NICE trigger pull, well polished parts from thousands of rounds fired, and then lightned up with the shorter spring. however, I got tired of occasional mal-functions with hard primer ammo at competitions, so I replaced the hammer spring.

Anyway, I've got TulAmmo in 9mm, .40, .45 and .223 never had any issues with it in any of my semi-autos. no failures of any kind.

is it dirtier than other ammo? not so much that it caused me any problems. WHen I shoot, I go through a few hundred rounds at a time, and always clean my weapons afterwards, so I don't notice if it's dirtier or causing problems.

I have used it in the past, and I will use it again in the future. I'd like to be exclusive and buy nothing but American made, brass and copper rounds, but my wallet votes louder than my pride. for long term storage, I have brass american made ammo in airtight ammo cans with silica gel packs to soak up any moisture. If I buy the steel case russian stuff, it's for the purpose of target shooting, and it will be used before I use any brass case ammo.

I haven't even had any issues with it...
A bit dirty but really no dirtier than Winchester White Box. Not as accurate (or at least as consistently accurate) as some others but great for range use.
I have shot Tul 7.62X39 exclusively in my AK - probably 2000+ rounds. Never a problem.
