I will not buy Tula my guns don't like it.
For personal protection I only use US made brass cased.
For everything else buy what you can, like they say "Buy it cheep, Stock it deep!" that was back when it was possible.
For my AKs I have used corrosive bulk ammo & did a good cleaning afterwards.
I bought a box of Russian 9mm steel case ball ammo this summer. I do not remember the name, but I can go check it out at the hunting store. Anyways, 1 of the 50 rounds misfired out of my Sig P226. I have shot many hundreds of rounds out of that gun, and this was a first. For practice, sure. The ammo was cheap and abundent. For real world applications, hell no. I will stick with my Magtech hollow points.
For me, the Russian ammo is crap. I dont mind paying more for good American made brass ammo for target. And I will spend whatever it takes for personal protection ammo. Not worth my time or life messing with that tullammo crap. I dont own cheap firearms so they will get quality ammo. But to each his own, do what you want with your own firearm. Good luck!!
I shoot steel case ammo when breaking in a new gun. After the break in phase I prefer American made ammo. Right now ammo is hard to get but with experience you can still get ammo right now. I just bought a case of American Eagle 147 gr FMJ ammo for $240. It took a couple months of inquiries to find the American Eagle ammo. You have to be active and joining an ammo buying group really helps a lot. Remember when participating in these buying groups cash talks. You can't use a credit card or be a pain is rear by writing checks. Just get a receipt for your cash so if the deal falls through there is no doubt about how much you have in the pool.
