    Dirty, low powered, not superb in accuracy.

    Cheap, fairly reliable.

    cheap and reliable is the key to those words. not for self defense but if your gun will eat it, feed it. my beretta px4 hates that stuff, my glock and springfield have not problem with it.

    I'm in the dark as usual;)

    What is it and where is it made? Steel or brass cases?

    Its one of the cheaper ammo groups out there, tulammo is made up of a steel case berdan prime and standard lower grain fmj rounds. Theyre russian i believe id have to look at one of my boxes

    Funny that this thread just posted

    I picked up two boxes of 50 230gr FMJ .45 ACP since WallyWorld did not have the WWB

    About $15 bucks a box, it was worth a try.
    I did not have a chance to try accuracy on paper, but the plinking accuracy was acceptable. Pop cans at 30 yards were challenging with a satisfying number of hits.

    I would agree that they are a bit dirty, might even caused the return of the dirty extractor!

    I don't see that these TulAmmo would hurt the kimber, and might recommend them to visiting shooters, if the WWB is not avail.

    Kind of a crap shoot whether it'll run well in any given gun. Many guns are going to gobble it down just fine with no major side effects.

    It's only about $1-2 cheaper per box than brass cased FMJs, so I'll probably never go down that path. Some folks are happy to save that $1 and find it performs well for them.

    It's all about individual preferences.

    I stay away from steel case ammo. My understanding is that it can be hard on extractors. Plus it is dirty to shoot. For a couple bucks more I'll stick with brass cases. That makes pretty cheap reloading brass.....
