Default Tula %4 FTF

Took 2 boxes of Tula 9mm to the range today. Had 4 failure to fires. I know it's cheapo ammo but never had that many problems.

No problems with my two boxes of .45 ACP Tula. All have fired in my Kimber Ultra Covert II.

Guess it's not the ammo for your pistol.

Tul ammo usually works pretty well. I am not saying they didn't get a bad batch of primers, but that many duds is unusual. I use Tul ammo to break in new guns.

I have bought a crap ton of Tula and have had 1 failure to fire, the primer was struck good, just a FTF.

With that being said, I still like Tula, its excellent plinking ammo and makes up about 40% of my stash. I would trust it for just about any situation in my rifles, for handguns, it plinking ammo only.

I just ran 150 rds of Tula 9mm thru my ruger last friday no issues here . I have it happen on no more than 1-2 per 250 rds of .223 sometimes but its a rare deal , I usually put them to the side and try again later and they usually go bang

Ran Tula through the SKS all day with no problems. The 9mm struck the primers well...just ftf. If the price is right i will still use it.

Tula is generally pretty reliable. Have you tried some other ammo? Could be a bad batch of ammo, or it could be your firing pin. Shooting some other ammo will narrow down the problem.

Of the Russian steel cased ammo, I've been the least impressed with the quality of the ammo that comes from tht Tula plant.

That being said, what gun were you running it in? I haven't had failures to fire, just some that were under powered, dirty, with crappy accuracy, and that some guns didn't like to feed or eject reliably, but it has always gone bang, when chambered.

Ran 400 .45 in one range session. Not a single FTF.
