Default Tula ammo

Any opinions on steel case ammo especially Tula? My metro arms 1911 won't even cycle more than one round without jamming and my 25 is fail to fire every round....anybody else had this issue or not?

My Glocks shoot well with Tula. But my DD AR15 hates it, will FTF for sure. Don't know why ;(.
Tula is cheap ammo good for target practises.

I primarily shoot TulAmmo through my Hi Point 4595TS carbine and never had an issue.

I would stop shooting it asap!!!! Send it to me and I will properly dispose of it for you


All kidding aside, I have run it through just about all my weapons and it has performed excellent. Make sure its clean and lubed well.

How bad on a chamber and extractor is steel Tula, on a 1911 style pistol?? Lucky gunner had 500 rounds for $157. Would it eat the extractor off??

You will probably stir a lot of opinions on that KyTB , I have never been afraid of running steel ammo in my weapons. The way I look at it, If i have a gun thats ammo picky i am not gonna trust my life to it with any type of ammo.

I have noticed no ill affects of any type. How much is an extractor ? prob under 30 bucks ? how many thousands of rounds til you wear it and how much ammo savings would that be ? HUGE!!

Now I dont give my Kimbers a steady diet of steel cased but they have fired some with no ill affects. Would I run it through a lower end 1911, hell ya. If I spent 2500 bucks on a nighthawk, I prob wouldn't skimp on ammo.

If it would what does a extractor cost ? $20-$30 Im not a 1911 guru so i dont know much about them . extractors are hardened steel the steel casing are not its going to take a long time to wear out the extractor . For practice and pllinking it doesnt take much to save yourself money
