Definitely DO NOT use the Tula .45 ammo! I have a friend with a slug stuck in the barrel of his 1911 due to a squib round. If you look this ammo up on CTD there are several others that have had the same experience.
I have shot a few rounds of it through my AR and was surprised to find that it sparks off the steel gong. After a quick look at the description I noticed that this stuff has a copper over steel jacket, which is suspect in my opinion.
Like everyone else said, if you have an AK (like everyone should) blast away, but if you care about the well being of your gun spend a few extra bucks for some decent ammo

got 0 use for an ak. much less tula ammo. if the ammo does have steel in it be careful some ranges restrict its use and can get you range banned. ask the range master before using it.

Please don't start with the China rumors. It is made in the US as I live 4 miles from the factory and it is the same ammo that is sold at all the other stores too.

The Olin range winchester ammo is all white box just different types i.e. fmj,hp, different gr. etc.

I actually buy more federal as it is less money than the winchester. Never a problem with either with any of my auto loaders.

I bought a few $8 boxes of Tula .308 this weekend just for fun plinking...and in case I needed to try to shoot through any engine blocks (FMC stuff). I am curious to see how it performs accuracy and "dirt" wise in a bolt or lever gun.

I bought a box of 50 for $15 for my .45 yesterday and went to the range. I blew thru it without a problem. I did not notice any difference in the usual white box ammo I use. Cleaned my 45 last night and didn't notice anything different or dirtier. I'm going to see if they make it in other calibers as well. I liked it.

My Mini 14 eats it like candy. I won't use it in my pistols just on principle. However, if push came to shove, I would.

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've been using tulammo for about 2 years now and can honestly say for the price of it, its excellent ammo. It out shoots remington rounds in my hi-point .45 and my starfire 9mm. I havn't had any issues with it damaging either ones. I say buy a couple boxes and see if you like it, its cheap enough!

On my last trip to the range I grabbed a box of Tula and a Box of Federal. Compared to the federal the Tula just felt weak, and yes, very dirty. I don't mind picking some up if it's the last things on the shelf, but knowing what everyone has said, I wouldn't pick it up every day. Besides, that's usually the first one out of stock at Wally World. Ammo has been scarce around here lately.
