That's another +1 for the AK-47! No ammo limitations!!! Shoot on!!!
As for Tula
I don't know or care if it's the same "parent company" that makes all the cheap, steel cased Russian "plinking" ammo. (don't forget to add Golden Tiger in there too) All I know is that I have ran it and all its steel-cases relatives through just about ALL
of my "baby's" with out any
problems, other than a couple extra minutes on the bench taking care of the fouling left by the cheap powder and of course the poor accuracy.
On thing I can say is that it IS safe.
got an improperly sized case as I have in Remington UMC, PMC (Korean Crap, many oversized .45 ACP ) and Winchester (white box).
Nor have I had excessive LEAD
fouling that has been left by CCI Blazer even SJ types and others that I can't think of.
I'm just a regular shooter and not much of a loader at all, but I KNOW
this ammo is no more likely to damage your gun than any
other comparable "low shelf" target ammo that's made by some of the recognizable brand names in the same price range. All I have to back it up is thousands and thousands of round of testing in just about every major caliber in Rifle and Handgun.
That said. . . I probably wouldn't put it through a custom 1911 or my next AR build. . .
But for most guns it is just fine.
If you have a "couple extra bucks"
take the time to BUY AMERICAN!
Just my 2 (or more) cents. . . .
