Default Tulammo Survey

After having two malfunctions in my SKS and having 20 out if 50 rounds failing to extract with my M1 Carbine, I've figured I should take up past experiences of Tulammo. Good or bad. Share your reviews and experiences of Tulammo of any caliber. What are your views of it?

If your ar will run it without issues you're in good shape.

I never had my P226 misfire until I used some 9mm from them. Just one round though. Still, one is too many for me. I would only use it for practice anyways. Do not gamble with your life.

This is what my LGS sells....

well last time I used Tula in my ar I went through a little over 1,000 rounds. I had one primer blow out. Heard it pop when I pulled the trigger. I ejected the round and the primer was gone but the bullet was still there. I threw it away put the mag back in and threw some more lead. Never had another problem. Also used it in my xd .45 never had a problem with it either. The only reason I stopped buying it is bc you can't reload steel.

Yeah I've shot about 125 through my SKS with no problem, just really really dirty. Then Friday I went to the range and the very fire round spilt and sent gas in my face. Then 75 or so rounds later I got a squib and a lot of unburnt powder all over the inside of the rifle.

all steel ammo is dirty. The case doesn't expand the same as brass. So it doesn't seal as good resulting in a lot more blow back.

Of the Russian steel case, the stuff that comes from the Tula factory seems to be some of the worst. It accounted for a lot if the complaints of Wolf ammo (Wolf is an importer, not a manufacturer).
Ammo made at Barnaul, Ulyanovsk, Vympel, and Novosibirsk plants, seems to be more consistent, and more reliable.

About Wolf, is the WPA stuff worth it? I've found it for $4.99 a box online and it's in stock. They said on their website that Wolf will give a 100% satisfaction guarantee on their ammo and if it doesn't live up to expectations then they'll refund the remaining ammo and shipping. They seem confident. It is steel cased so it'll be dirty, they have brass cased but I can't find any online. It sounds expensive due to brass casing. All the brass cased x39 I've found is $.50+ a round

i don't support russian ammo, just a personal stance.

but a friend i have buys it all the time. he got some tula and it gave his AR fits, probably about one FTF for every 10 rounds.

but he also had some "brown bear" ammo and that ran very well.

You would need to check the packaging and see where it is manufactured. Wolf imports from several factories.

The brass am in Wolf's Gold line of ammo is made at the Prvi Partisan plant. Some of their polyformsncr ammo is made at Tula, some of their ammo is made at Ulyanovsk.
