Default TulAmmo?

Hey everyone. So I went down to the local Wally World today to see what they had in the way of ammo. I saw something new that they are stocking called TulAmmo. I've never seen it before but its really cheap for .45 at about $15 a box of 50.

So I was wondering if anyone has used this ammo or even heard of it before? I know it's a steel casing and made in Russia, but that's about it. I just figured for shooting paper, you can't really beat that price.

I shoot the 62 gr. stuff in my Mini 14 and it eats it up. I would not use it in a pistol, at least not one that I like.

Is it really that bad? What damage can it do?

I just don't like the idea of steel cases in my beloved 1911 and it really is pretty dirty.

The last several times I've been into Walmart they've had plenty of Fed Champion ($16/50) and WWB ($33/100). Personally, I'll gladly pay that extra dollar or two a box for brass cases instead of steel.

Considerably better quality and US production for a pretty negligible price increase.

I've seen the tulammo there and figured you get what you pay for. I'll stick to the federal champions.

If you have any pride in your weapons at all,stay away from lacquer coated,steel cased,nasty primered russian crap. Unless you have an AK-47. Its the dumpster diver of the gun world,it'll eat anything. No class

Default Tula 62 grain .223

I fired the Tula 62 grain .223 through my AR and the stuff seems to be quite underpowered. I had several stuck cases. Now, I used the same ammo in my Romy SAR 3 (5.56 AK) without any problems. I do not know about their pistol calibers though.

I've been told that it's not worth the savings to use steel cased ammo in a semi-automatic

It can have a laquer on it that will get in your gun, which is bad

Steel is also a hard metal, and has the potential to do damage to the inside of your baby. Brass is used for a reason, it's soft, so if anything were to be damaged, it would be the case and not the gun

Treat your baby well, spend the extra few dollars to keep her happy

I think it's pretty common for steel cases to be used for rifles like Mosin-Nagants, but personally, I wouldn't use it in a semi-auto

Just my 2 bulle
