Not bad at all...
Review by Wolfgang

My wife and I both shoot Colt AR's. Bought a spam can of this stuff for range shooting; figured if it has some FTE/FTF issues every few hundred rounds, all the better as it will give us some real world practice on clearing malfunctions. After shooting up the contents of an entire spam can (500 rds), not a single FTE/FTF or stuck case. Zero problems. We shot with iron sights only, but groups were within 3" at 25 yards standing freehand; I'm not sure any match ammo would improve on that as we ourselves were probably the weak link keeping it from being bench-rest perfect. We don't reload so that isn't a factor, we like to shoot on the cheap, and we keep some Federal stored for Zombie time, but I have been impressed with this ammo. I know some people call it "dirty," but we actually clean our rifles after each day of range shooting so again, not really a factor in performance as we don't let our rifles go a couple thousand rounds without cleaning anyway. What I'd love to tell everyone is that it's lousy, horrible ammo so that the price stays low and it stays in stock, but alas, it's actually been fine and allows us more fun and inexpensive shooting time. My ONLY concern is that I've read some torture tests that attribute increased barrel wear to the thinner bimetal wash/plating as opposed to Federal copper jackets (see luckygunner.com) but then again, they were running a lot of rounds fast and hot with no cleaning, so the barrel wear may not be as significant in our case. At the end of the day, barrels are ultimately a wear item anyway after several thousand rounds; although I wouldn't want to cause premature damage I wonder whether our leisurely rate of fire and relatively cool (and thick, good chrome-lined steel) barrels don't negate the reported torture test wear anyway.
In short, I'll keep buying it where I can find it at this price anyway. (Posted on 6/20/14)

If your gun can eat STEEL shoot it. Some don't like it. My M&P 15 Sport has no issues. Some say it's accuracy is hurt because it doesnt seal as good as brass but from 50 yds open site I had 10/10 in a 8 inch group. (Posted on 5/21/14)

It's cheap, draw your own conclusions. I see the other posts about putting a 1000 rounds through without a problem. I'm just back from the range - goal was to fire all Tula .223 - I had a few hundred rounds from the great ammo scare of 2012 :). Wow, jams, feed failures, eject failures. I thought it was just the rifle. Nope, bought 20 rounds from the range (Federal, brass)... blam blam blam - no jams at all.

It *still* could be my rifle, but.... (Posted on 3/8/14)

I have never really had problems with ammo before. I know lots of folks complain about the steel having feeding issues in their AR's but I bought the steel to shoot of a break action .223 that I use coyote hunting. In less than 100 rounds of ammo I have had three fail to fire; one of which with a coyote in my sights. Then I also had one round that the bullet came loose in the barrel prior to being fired. I happened to open the action as I walked back to my truck to find gun powder pouring out of the casing and the bullet itself lodged in my rifle. I had to ram a cleaning rod down the barrel with gun oil to dislodge the bullet. I think this ammo can be fired down range while plinking but I would never trust it hunting or in a defense situation.

Like many folks I just wasn't about to run this cheap Ruskie stuff through my babies. But the great ammo panic of 2013 forced me to either use some of my U.S. GI stuff, try something new, or not shoot. Boys and girls I have to tell you there ain't nothing wrong with this ammo. I've run 1000 at a time ,without cleaning my Windham M-4 (my DI would have a heart attack) without a hicup period. It is slightly less accurate than Lake City , but it is certainly minute of ground hog at 300. (Posted on 10/25/13)

I heard many bad reviews on this ammo, so i never purchase any before. I Have a Colt 6920 and shot now over 1000 rounds using Tula and not a single problem. It was the only ammo available thats why i purchase it.

I did change the extractor spring to a wolf spring other than that is stock. I didn't try it with the stock spring to see if that help out ot not. I will do that next time to see the difference.

Worst Ammo Out There

This stuff is absolute junk. I could not make it through a 5 round mag without these failing to feed. I managed 10 shots (which were terrible @100 yds compared to only slightly higher priced ammo), and had one fail to eject, with the bolt closed. I had to "mortar" the empty casing loose (jarhead for slamming the *%$@ thing on the rear of the rifle) to get the thing loose. Save your $, and spend slightly more on something that is reliable. Glad I wasn't defending myself, or I woulda had to fix bayonets! (Posted on 6/25/13)

I have fired over 100 rounds thru my m-4 full auto no jams period, with a cyclic rate of 30 rds in approx 1.4 secs. Buy it all if you can. I'm going to try and buy 1000 rds/wk until I have 10,000, then I should be good for a while, ZOMBIES come please. (Posted on 12/14/12)

I was trying this ammo in a gas piston AR....tight grouping...no problem there...no misfires...no problems there....after about 50 rounds....the lacquer coating on the casing was literally melting onto the breech, causing jam after jam....the casings were sticking so bad I had to tap them out from the muzzle rod. I'll be buying brass from now on. (Posted on 7/5/12)

I've run 600 rds of this through my AR and so far only 1 stoppage. I would call that pretty good for plinking ammo. It is what it is, ammo at an affordable price! I would buy it again. (Posted on 1/25/12)

I have fired over 400 rds of this TulAmmo in the black box i purchased from Wal-Mart in Yuba City Calif and it has functioned flawlessly in my Savage bolt action 223. At $4.97 per 20 its a great deal. At 100 yds with a 3-9x40 cheap scope once dialed in I hit three 3/8 inch square bullseyes in a row then went home. Came back 3 weeks later and shot 5 rds at 100 yds and was within 1/2 inch of every bullseye in a 3-10 mph crosswind. Then shot 10 rds at 165 yds and was still within 1 inch of each bullseye(compensated for approx 1 to 2 inch drop) then shot 10 rds at 200 yds and 9 of 10 was within 2 1/2 to 3 inches of bullseye. I am nearly 61 years old and not in great health and consider myself a novice shooter, so this is in my opinion outstanding ammo and somewhat remarkable shooting. I did have the barrel resting on homemade sandbags and both my elbows on the bench i was shooting from. BTW at 200 yds the ammo had approx 2 inch of drop. " Warning" ---I had been to Cabeles' in Reno Nevada where i bought several hundred rounds of 223 HP and 7.62x39(SKS ammo) Herters brand not to be confused with Harters. It was packaged almost exactly like the TulAmmo but in white and brown boxes. This ammo is J-U-N-K--------At 100 yards it was shooting 8 inches or more lower then the dialed in TulAmmo. At 200 yds I couldnt hit my 2 foot target box. DO NOT BUY HERTERS BRAND AMMO, unless you just want to hear a bang. (Posted on 7/5/11)
Poor performance in rounds

Too many stoppages for me. After firing about 100 rounds every other shell casing lodged in the barrel, requiring coming off the line for repair. I switched ammo to another brand and the same weapon performed flawlessly. I fired over 450 rounds with the other ammo. Very disappointed in Tula .223
To be fair my son fired 500 rounds of Tula and had only 2 stoppages, both casings lodged in the barrel. My partner fired also 500 rounds with 2 stoppages, all in the barrel. There is much better performing ammo out there. (Posted on 6/30/11)
