Good buy for target practises. Works well on my Glocks. But i prefer Wolf ammo. They are both Russian made, steel casings and cheap prices.

I have the week off so I bought 50 rounds of some 5.56 and ran it through my bushmaster a3. I had no reliability issues and the 100 yard accuracy was on par with some brass ammo. Upon inspection after shooting I noticed some fouling but I cleaned it in about 10 minutes.The price is about the same as my hand loads and it will save me a bunch of time when i just want to punch holes in paper or get a feel for a new gun. Looks like Tulammo has a new customer!

My bushmaster AR hates Tulammo won't feed properly won't so ever. So I just stick with brass. But with my glock I use Tulammo almost extensively since it is the cheapest right now. No problems what so ever.

Weird how every gun is an individual.

ive used tul in my BCM just trying it out and the groups are quite a bit lower on the paper which generally means less velocity than my military loadings. dont have a chrono since i blew up my last one with a 458winmag... need to rectify that someday

couple hundred i shot cycled just fine and accuracy was accaptable for cheap junk ammo. if your gun cycles it nothing wrong with it so long as your not expecting black hills type performance

I shoot it and buy it any chance I can. Good ammo at a really good price.

I shoot a lot of Tula 9mm and .45 ACP. I have not had the first problem with it. It does shoot a little dirty, but I always clean after shooting so that doesn't bother me. The Tula is steel cased, so not a good option to reload.

I see very little difference in the Tula and the Wolf. They both probably come off the same production line.
