I would never normally consider .45 ACP as casual “plinking” ammo as it is far from cost effective. With this ammo, it IS cost effective, the price is amazing!

I purchased 500 rounds of this ammo for my Glock 36. It arrived quickly and I was off to the range to enjoy some good shooting. This ammo was such an exceptional performer, I ordered 500 more rounds. It is very accurate, it does not leave excessive residue in your weapon and in firing now over 350 rounds, I have had no misfires or jams. I highly recommend it!

Bought this ammo for the cheap price and the previous reviews were solid. Shot about 300 rounds of this so far and only had one malfunction. I shoot the Sig P220 and I have an issue loading the rounds into my magazines (I can only get about 5 or 6 loaded). Not sure what the issue is because it loaded into a Glock mag w/o issue. The rounds are accurate, the price is reasonable and the shipping is super fast. (Posted on 9/24/14)

I've used about 650rds of this ammo so far with no ftf or fte this ammo works just fine in my 1911's. It's accuracy is pretty consistent too, it's not like $1 a squeeze accuracy but it'll do. It is a bit dirty but it's worth it. And as always super fast shipping (Posted on 7/16/14)

Fired 250 rounds of this to break in my new cw45. After about 150 rounds the front of the gun was black. Around 190 rounds the gun slide froze up from the carbon build up. I sprayed some more frog lube on slide and did a light cleaning. I did not have any FTF or FTI , so its decent ammo. Just remember you will have to do a good cleaning after 100 or so rounds.

Warm it up in the oven, and don't get it so hot you melt anything, you don't want melted or you can apply right after you take a break F/ Shooting,, as the weapon is hot, this stuff soaks into the metals..

Not for my G21
Review by Sean
Ammo Performance
Bargain?
Reliable?
I have a G21 as noted above and a Hi-Point 4595 carbine. The first round I loaded in the Glock stopped half way in the chamber. First time I've ever seen my G21 fail to load properly. I shot the 13 rounds I had loaded in the mag without further problems. It seemed to be as accurate as the Blazer ammo I normally shoot, so no problems there. It may be nothing, but the finish on the casing just seems to not work for my G21. Good thing the Hi-Point loves eating this stuff, and every trip to the range I go through 100 to 150 rounds with it. Great price for .45acp ammo and good quality. I will definitely be buying more Tula ammo for the 4595. (Posted on 11/1/12)

I ran 500 rounds through my Sig Sauer 1911 Nitron Rail (5" barrel). I suffered 2 double-feed malfunctions. These are the first double-feed malfunctions this gun has suffered, and I believe this is due to the ammo. Otherwise, I am pleased with the performance. I will definitely buy again.

Went to the range early October & shot 400 rounds with my S&W 1911. Did not have any failure what so ever. Very good ammo.

Con: Most indoor ranges do not permit using steel cased ammo, especially Russian ammo.
Other than that, the ammunition performed flawlessly. I clean my pistol everytime I use it & did not notice any additional powder residue buildup with this ammo. For the money, I could not find a better price anywhere on the internet. (Posted on 10/12/12)

It's cheap but...
Review by Mike L

Ammo Performance
Bargain?
Ran about 400 rounds through my G30sf. No problems with the gun whatsoever, but it's a Glock, so they are not picky. Accuracy was about average. What I did notice was the smoke and sparking from the ammo. When I say sparking I mean both from firing AND from the rounds hitting the metal backstops at the indoor range I shoot at. This makes me wonder if this is, in fact, a metal cored round? On the plus side - it's CHEAP! With .45 rounds getting so expensive, it's nice to see something reasonable out there.

Bottom line: This is good enough for now, but I will probably experiment with other rounds later on, even though I know they will be more expensive. (Posted on 6/12/12)

Went through 150 rounds the other day in my Remington 1911 R1. Awesome. No misfires and very accurate. Didn't appear to leave much residue either (I fired some other brand at the same time which is a little dirty so hard to tell with the cross-contanimation).

Definitely a good deal: about $.30/cartridge. I couldn't find that price anywhere else on the net and definitely not at my dealer. (Posted on 3/13/12)

I haven't shot any of the ammo yet but upon close inspection of a 50round box I noticed the case rims don't seem to be as evenly cut as brass but maybe that is just inherent in the material being steel instead of brass.

Q: Is this ammo new or reloaded?

Posted On: 2/2/12 By: Eri

A: This Tula .45 ACP ammo is brand new factory ammo, not reloaded.
Q: Is there a coating on the steel and does it come off on the receiver when it gets hot?

Posted On: 10/8/11 By: David

A: This Tula ammo has a polymer coating to protect the steel. It will not come off onto the receiver or barrel.
Q: I have heard that steel jacketed ammo is generally bad for guns and causes excessive fouling and deposits to build up. Is this true and, if so, is there a way to prevent that problem and still use steel jacketed ammo? Thank you!

Posted On: 9/29/11 By: Chris

A: This Tula 45 ACP ammo has a bimetal jacket, which is composed of copper and steel. The jacket is soft enough that it will not damage the rifling of your barrel. The case is made of steel, but this steel is mild, and, like the bimetal jacket, will not cause excessive wear in your pistol. You might find that this ammo does cause additional fouling in the chamber of your pistol because of how steel acts during firing - brass expands to seal against the walls of the chamber, while the steel does not do so as effectively - but this does not take much more time to clean than any other ammo type. A good chamber brush should be on hand no matter what kind of ammo you shoot.
Q: What are the drawbacks of using steel cases? Why do many shooting ranges not allow steel cases?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Masher

A: Steel cases are not reloadable and thus have much less intrinsic value. Many shooting ranges resell the brass that is left on the ground or placed in brass buckets, and steel cases would have to be sorted out from this brass. Thus, they do not allow steel cased ammunition on their range.
Q: Is there a performance difference between steel and brass case in .45 ACP? Thanks!

Posted On: 9/27/11 By: Greg

A: Some pistols function better with brass ammunition than with steel or aluminum cased ammunition. Generally, the fewest problems will be had with brass ammunition - but there are many firearms that will cycle steel and aluminum cased ammo without any problems. The only way to find out if your pistol is reliable with any particular ammunition is to shoot it in your weapon.
