Tulammo..

Discussion in 'Caliber Corner' started by tazmaniandevil, Aug 24, 2012.

  1. I've heard mixed reviews about Tulammo, and wanted to gather some intelligence from people who have used it before I go order a case of it. I'm shooting .40, so anyone else who has any expirience with Tulammo's .40 in a glock is more than welcome to tell me the pros, and cons on it! Bought ammo at basspro, and im like 18.97 for WWB? really? gonna look at some steel cased stuff..lol thanks gents!
     
  2. Tula worked just fine in my 27. I put 300rds through it just this past week. Just gets extremely dirty! Sure there is a bunch of hooplah about it's bad for the barell and such, I can't say either way. I don't know if it does any damage, but I don't believe everything I read on here. It is cheap and works just fine for me.

    I don't usually use it, I prefer blazer brass, but whatever I can find cheap is good by me!

    Not just dirty, filthy. I've fired a few hundred rounds of it with no issues other than my gun gets... discusting


    :rofl::tongueout::rofl::tongueout::rofl:
     
  4. Because of the really good price I bought a couple of boxes from Wally. Ran them through my G23 without a problem. Ended up buying some more including some for my .380. Shot a couple of more boxes of .40 and a couple boxes of .380. Still no problem with it in the G23 and because of some who complain of it being dirty took a close look and saw no evidence that there was any more 'discusting' or "dirty, filthy' buildup. Of course I was not firing from a prone position with my gun in the dirt. However in my .380 I did have several FTLs but other than that it was OK - meaning not noticably dirtier that I've noticed with other ammo. It's my plinking ammo. Just bought 400 more rounds to plink.

    I've run 9mm through my 19 and 26, no issues.
     
  6. I had a lot of fte with the .380 so I no longer use it


    Should be wrenching instead of using TapaTalk

    I've used a bunch of it in my 3 9mm pistols. ONLY problem I've had was a FTFeed in the G26. I use TULA almost exclusively in my 17 and at times in my 19. No problems and no excessive buildup because I clean after EVERY trip to the range. As range only ammo, TULA, the different color BEAR ammos and Wolf "military classic" work fine when I've use them all.

    I've only used 9mm in my g26.

    Unfortunately, I get a 2% FTFire ratio overall.

    I'll use it for practice, but not for carry.

    But then again, you asked about 40, not 9, so nevermind.:supergrin::upeyes:

    I've fired +1,000 rds of the stuff through my G23 and G35 without a hiccup. Another +1,000rds through a MP5-40. My MP5 doesn't like it because it's too weak of a load.

    Plus another +400rds of .45acp through a Taurus PT845 and +500rds through a 1911.

    +2,500rds of 9mm through my G23's LW 40-9 conversion barrel.

    Going out with my slide fire to burn off a few hundred rounds of 223. I do not expect any problem.

    I have on occasion hard primers in the 9mm. Every round fired the second time thru.

    I've used several hundred rounds of it in both my G22 and my G26. I've had maybe 2 FTF's. In all honesty I find it to be no worse than any other kind of cheap range/practice ammo. I didn't notice my weapons being any dirtier either.

    I use it in my SKS and AKs - that's about it. I've had ARs act up / choke with very few rounds and am looking to start reloading brass for my pistols rather than lowering ammo quality. I see a lot of people using it - even in matches. I'm sure it's getting better but until it goes the route of Cabelas Herter line (bargain brass by Selllier & Beloit) I'm staying my course.

    Cheap but dirty. If you are good on cleaning then it shouldn't be a problem.

    My Glock 21 loves it.
    My DPMS AP4 loves it.
    My AK47 loves it.
    My 1911 loves it.
    My S&W .357 loves it.
    The only issues I can really confirm is that it is dirtier than brass. I am not an expert but, from what I can find and figure is that the steel casings do not seal around the projectile as well as brass and this causes more "carbon blowby". I don't know. I can honestly say I have shot many round of this ammo and never run into any issues...This is just my amateur findings.

    By now someone has passed on the Tula is dirty myth, no difference from any other brand, fire a few hundred brand X cartridges, notice how dirty your glock is? Now fire the same ammount of cartridges of Tula. No difference. An urban legend in the works to be sure. Buy it, shoot it, clean your Glock period. It is my OUTDOOR range practice ammo, as the INDOOR range I frequent does not allow it, or I would use it all the time for practice. I have fired lots of it through my 9mm and .40 glocks, all work just fine.

    DITTO,
    I have put around 500 rds thru my G22 Gen4 and have not had any problems, and the gun is not ditier than firing any other round which for me is the wally world Federal. I have no problem with the tulammo and I recommend it to my friends who are just plinking at the range.

    I've only tried a couple of boxes of 9mm and a couple of .40. The 9mm was used in a Ruger SR9c with no issues. The .40 was used in a Glock 22 and I had failures to feed, BUT, I was using those cheap Korean mags at the time. I've had maybe 2 or 3 failures to feed with WWB and Federal Champion out of many hundreds of rounds with these mags, but Tula was failing to feed maybe 30% of the time. I suspect it would probably feed just fine in OEM Glock mags.

    I really just bought it on a whim because the local WalMart was out of the bulk packs of Fed Champion. The stores near me charge about the same per round of Tula in the 50rnd boxes and Fed Champion in the 100 round boxes, so IMO there's no reason for me to buy Tula.

    I run steel casings Russian made ammo through my AK (no corrosive), because its cheap and I am not going to do any reloading. Also, the AK is made to run on dirty crappy ammo.

    I've run 300 through my Glock 17 no problems and not as dirty as it was made out to be. I expected a lot more smoke when firing and more grunge in the chamber and barrel when I broke it down. So over all I'm very pleased with my experience.
