I run Tula exclusively in my ARs without any issues. 9mm no issues. Cheap decently accurate ammo. I save my brass ammo for my bolt guns. Shoots no different than the wolf ammo I have

I see very little difference in the Tula and the Wolf. They both probably come off the same production line.
I believe Tula and Wolf ammo come from the same factory complex in the city of Tula Russia.

I prefer training fodder to cheap ammo, makes me sound more, sophisticated

Tula, Wolf, Brown Bear, and the generic American brands like White Box, UMC ANd American Eagle are "economy" products. They're great, low cost rounds that allow you to get a lot of practice, but you really should use the expensice "premium" rounds for serious social shooting.

Yeah I get factory ammo for self defense. I was wondering If the fodder would be good for IDPA.

Depends. If you're an "average" IDPA shooter, it should be fine.

If you're a true world class competitor, get a Dillon 1050, and load your own with the best premium components.

I just go there to have a fun day at the range with my gun buddies. I have been thinking about progressive reloading but it is costly.
