Tulammo.......

So I put 2 boxes of their 180grain fmj's through my 27 today, and absolutely no issues. I've seen some negative reviews on it (ie: very dirty..ect) but at $12.xx for a box of 50 at Wally world... Any reason I shouldn't stock up on it for range ammo?? It wouldnt be used as hd/sd.

It's under $9/box at CTD. Might want to check on the cost of shipping for ordering 5-10 boxes from them.

I reload for most of my firearms, but the steel cased stuff is great to have on hand for trips to the range where I don't want to bring my brass home.

This one sells the 9mm for $9 but .40 for $12, I've been doing some shopping around and might have to check out other walmarts around the Austin area. Idk why but I feel like paying another dollar or two to have them in my hand now, might out-weigh waiting for them to be shipped. I'm looking to buy some serious bulk soon... So I'm shopping around still.

MIne is the same...

Used TulAmmo today and not a single issue....it's pretty dirty but I have to clean the gun anyways after shooting so who cares.

I will be buying more in bulk for sure.

Put a magnet on the bullet/projectile. It's steel. Save it for a rainy day, literally. If you are shooting outdoors anyway. This type of ammo has been banned by a lot of ranges also. It has been known to be the cause of many wildfires. Steel bullets hitting rocks and such, results in a spark, which in turn can ignite dry vegetation. I have also witnessed a number of bad Tula rounds that don't go bang everytime. Junk in my opinion.

At most, it has a steel core.

Any truth to the steel case wearing out the extractor much quicker? Thats the only issue I possibly have with it.

I shot some 9mm along with cheap Federal, and the Tula was definately less consistent in the pistols that I tried it in - Glock 17 and a Ruger SR9. The Tula groups looked like buckshot patterns from either pistol. I'll pass.

My 30sf loves tula, as did my sr9c, as well as my wallet. My BG380 on the other hand takes two trigger pulls to fire each round, so Tula is a no-no in .380 for me.

No, actually the core is lead. I have pulled the bullet from a Tula round and melted the lead out of it. What is left behind is a fairly thick, copper plated steel jacket.

It's not steel cored ammo. It has what is called a bimetal jacket. A very thin layer of copper over a steel jacket.

Yea, just the other day I had a guy doing an off duty qual with a BG380. He was shooting Tula and out of the 36 rounds, he had 15 of them that didn't fire on the first pull. Good thing the BG380 has double strike capability.

I've had good luck with the 180gr. .40. Very mild load to shoot. On the 9mm I'll get a dud every once in awhile. Mostly use it went I can't get anything else. Never seen it harm a gun.

I've had nothing but flawless function with Tula and Monarch both brass and steel cased.

I've heard plenty of people bad mouth it and buy more expensive ammo, but I highly doubt they have actually shot it. Kind of a mind set I've seen where they buy into the "hype" and won't even give it a try.

But like i said, I have shot 1000's of rounds of this stuff both pistol and carbine. My best friend who shoots matches with me almost exclusively shoots Tula through his Beretta 92 and XDM and he has never had a hiccup either that I've seen or heard about. He shoots Tula so often he gets teased by other shooters that he must be sponsored by them.

my experience with both 40 an 9mm:

Works okay
occasional hard primer
smells like cat piss
some magazines on other guns don't take to the steel case all that well.

If Tulammo (or any handgun ammo) had a steel core it would never be allowed into the U.S. because it would be deemed Armor Piercing.

Thankfully I reload so I'm not facing the option of having to shoot Tula ammunition in my firearms. SJ 40

I always buy a few boxes when in WalMart. 9,.40,.45, and .223.
Gives me a few hundred extra rounds when at the range.
Glocks seem to love it. It does stink.
Kinda nice not to worry about picking up brass.

I have run >2k of it through my G17. Never a problem. I still only clean it every 1K. It may be a "dirty" ammo, but the G17 likes it just fine.
