Default tulammo

How is tulammo in any weapon? I've heard its not great but because its steel cased it shouldn't be used?

I thought it was as dirty as the Wolf & Bear stuff, but a buddy has been using it in his DPMS AR with full success. I had previously thought it would be rough on the poodle shooters.

I shoot it because I don't reload, and it is cheap. I have shot thousands of rounds of the stuff, in 9mm and .45 ACP and I have had no problems at all. I think it is good stuff. That said, it is not what is in my carry weapon.

Great range ammo, it is dirty but most cheap ammo is.

Dirty practice ammo is a good thing. It forces some lazy folks to clean their weapon.

My Saiga AK loves the stuff and I haven't had any problems. I haven't fired it in my AR or in anything else.

been running steel cased ammo down range since the old Lacquer issue days,( literally many thousands of rounds, .223 .45 .40 9mm) the Polly coated steel is as good as any brass and is soft steel, as soft as brass.
Anyone that says it will damage your gun... I would take what ever they say with a grain of salt....

The only people that have problems with steel ammo have crapy guns. If your gun won't run it seal it bc it's s***.
