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.
My 1911 had no aftermarket parts. My Glock has nothing more than a little trigger work done to get it to 3.5 Both worked reliably with any other normal FMJ ammo. But as I've said hundreds of times, when it comes to ammo, or anything for that matter, to each his own. I will say that the tula seems to have a higher potential for failure when compared to other rounds. A few weeks back at the range some guy on the rifle lane was shooting it and ended up with a case jammed after firing. They rodded the hell out of it and ended up have to take it to a local smith to have it removed. It's just not worth that chance to me, be it a high chance or low one. I know if I shot it and got a jammed case, WWIII would start outside the range without a doubt.

I hate to agree with Hoss, but he's absolutely right here, on both points.

Fair enough. thanks for the insight. you're absolutely right though, to each his own.

a few weeks ago someone in the Beretta forum said they had problems with one jamming, but I've never had a problem with any of mine, regardless of ammo brand, type, factory load or home load, etc. only time I had problems was when using the cheap no-name generic magazine that came with mine when I bought it (used)

If you shoot 1000 rounds of Tula, Wolf, etc steel case, and you save $10 per hundred over brass case, WHO CARES if you have to buy a $5 extractor????

Or you could show a little respect to your guns and buy quality ammo
