Tulammo
 
Has anyone shot Tulammo out of a ria 1911 .45? I've shot it out of my high point 9 but really crappy. I've shot it out of my tarsus pt40 and it was great. It is cheap and well I shot to much according to my wife but I would like to know before I go and buy any cause money is little scares right now cause of the holidays thanks for the info

I shoot only brass cased ammo out of 1911's. Just personal preference. I'll use it in a Mini 14 or Mini 30, but not my handguns.

I have shot it out of my RIA Officer's a few times. It ran fine, but I reload now so I don't use it anymore.

You will read a lot of warnings about steel cased ammo. After quite a bit of reading the thing you need to know is that steel cases may "shave" if it scrapes a hard surface, thus it may leave small shavings that fall into places you don't want them. Brass is more forgiving and will scar.

If you clean your gun thoroughly after shooting you should be OK with Tulammo. It is not ammo I shoot regularly, but I will shoot a box once in a while.

The 7.62x39 is very poor quality. Inconsistent primer seating does not work with my Mini 30. I can not see where quality would be good on other calibers if it is bad on one. No problems with Silver Bear and Wolf works.

If brass cased, it should be ok.
Some of the pistol steel case ammo has a polymer coating. During strings of rapid fire, it may start out okay, but as the handgun warms up, the polymer creates FTE's in some.

Then when the polymer cools, you really have to clean up with more than solvent to remove the polymer.

While it was issued to the military, they did not shoot the handguns at the rate a competition does.

Thanks so in other words probably better off buying brass and save money in the long run. Thanks a bunch

Also I want to get different grips for my ria. Where would be a great place to start. I prefer somewhere I can hold up to my gun to make sure I will like the look and like the feel. Thanks again

I have purchased 4000 rds. in the past year or so 2000 7.62 x 39 and 1000 each of .45 acp and 9mm and I have never had a problem not one fail to fire in several thousand rds. I put 100 through my p-10 yesterday and again no problems at all. I have used a good quantity of Wolf as well without issue.
Must be the good clean living :p

I've heard a lot of bad about steel, but I am not a gunsmith or scientist. I only use brass bc I have heard no bad about it, it's history of working, and it doesn't tear up my hands and finger tips as steel does. Steel hurts after a while when you refuse to use a "loader" as I do.
