Tula or Wolf?

I'm wanting to buy a case of plinking ammo to shoot out of my new Colt LE6920(that you guys helped me decide on).
Does anyone have a preference between Tula and Wolf?
I realize they're both bottom of the barrel,but buying the Colt has put a strain of my "gun" budget.

Thanks for the link.I ordered two UMC value packs,15 boxes of the MFS(on sale) and 15 boxes of Federal AE LCT ammo.
I've noticed most places prices are pretty much the same on ammo.Shipping cost is the biggest variable.

I'd pay a bit more and get some PMC Bronze .223 55grain. Funtion and accuracy are great in my 6920. Went to a gun show yesterday and just about everyone selling ammo had it for $7 a box or less.

I second this, if you look hard you can get it for $6 a box. But $7 is pretty dang good...

check luckygunner.com, sportsmansguide.com, ammotogo.com

I'm sure others can give you some more suggestions.

Silver Bear is my favorite cheap ammo.

Very accurate too.

I bought 1000 rounds of Tula .223 when Cabela's put it on sale 2 years ago.

It jams every .223 rifle I own, including Ruger Mini-14's. I've never jammed a Ruger Mini-14 in my entire life until then. And when I say jam, I mean jam, not malfunction. It sticks in the chamber so badly, the rim breaks, and you have to extract the fired case with a cleaning rod.

An AR can't get through one magazine. It'll jam a Mini-14 at some point during the day.

And I still have 850 rounds of this crap.

I've not heard of problems with Wolf, but I've not shot much of it.

FWIW I've fired about 100 rounds each of TulAmmo steel, Wolf steel, and Hornady match steel through my Stag out of 5 different mags and haven't had one malfunction.

I'd try a bit of both before buying in bulk. The last Colt barrel I had did not like steel cased at ALL.

Only shoot brass case in that colt! If its the 1 in 7 twist then its close to precision...tight tolerance....you'll get a steel casing stuck with hot carbon. JMHO!

Currently preparing to clean my ARs for the first time since this time last year and only because I'm going to try out a new lubricant. A year, thousands of rounds of Tula, no cleaning, 3 failures to feed. How was I able to make it through?

I got rid of my last Colt barrel 2 years ago. My only current AR is built on an LMT 10.5" upper.

I can't speak for others' rifles, I built 4 rifles this year so far, each one gets tested with couple mags of Tulammo just to see how gas system functions=if it functions with lower powered ammo, it will probably never fail to cycle with 855 ammo.

I have had one failure out of probably 400 rounds so far, a failure to eject.

I prefer brass cased ammo for ability to reload--most ammo has went up about 20% this year. Tulammo is still $5 box at wal-mart.

It is coated with a polymer/shelac/varnish or something. I ran some thru a rifle with no gas tube to sight it in, and it wanted to stick in the chamber since it was not immediately ejected, but it was still able to be cycled out with the charging handle. I did not notice any residue or anything in the chamber when cleaning. It is also supposed to be non-corossive now, but I clean throughly anyway as it is dirty burning ammo.

for practice and testing I recommend it, also for stockpile, in case next administration decides to tax the hell out of ammo and ammo becomes 200% or more what it costs now.

Same here bud-- I like the M855 ammo. I was lucky enough to get 3x 840 round earlier this summer when it was still $360 each with shipping--hope those prices return

I've shot probably 1000 rounds of Tulammo. Other than one light load (that felt light) that didn't cycle far enough to strip a new round, but ejected just fine, I've had no issues.

I too have had problems with tula in my bushmaster. The case jamming in the barrel and without a ram it's impossible to get out. However this happens occasionally with all the steel cased ammo I purchased. I found a guy selling 800 rounds of mixed ammo for 80$. It was wolf classic military, tula and brown bear. Not every mag would have a jam but it happened more frequently with the tula...

yep.. I have been seeing this since 98-99 and its the reason I do not use soviet stuff in a AR.
