I shot this ammo out of my Ruger SR556. The very first round jammed so badly, I had to shove a rod down the barrel to push the casing out. The next 5 rounds jammed but not as bad. I would rather spend the extra cash and get better ammo. There were metal shavings in my weapon when I cleaned it. Not good ammo. (Posted on 4/18/12)

I ran 400 rounds out of the 1000 purchased through my Ruger SR556 with zero issues. Accuracy was good. Good 3 gun ammo. (Posted on 4/10/12)

I have read the reviews on this ammo before and figured for the price I would give it a try anyway. I shot the 55gr through my ACR and it continued to jam. I swiched out to Federal Ammo without issue after a magazine or two I tried the Tula again nothing but jams and misfires. I ended up giving the remaining rounds away...way to frustrating to shoot.

2 months ago I purchased 1000 rounds of the 55 grain .223
Yesterday I shot about 200 rounds with only one failure. One primer did not fire properly or only partially fired (should have took a picture) performed SPORTS on my AR (Daniel Defense) and kept rocking. Powder shot pretty clean. I have had dirtier on the range with gov issue M16 and ammo. Exterior portion of casings where clean and not oily/dirty.

A couple magazines I shot rapid fire with transitions to a handgun did not have any problems after the one misfire stated above.
Was only able to shoot targets at less than 100 ft. and the grouping was very tight.

Very happy with what I received, Bulk Ammo was quick with the shipping and had the ammo on my doorstep in 2 days maybe 3. Emailed Bulk Ammo with a question and the customer service was very quick and helpful with their response.

Would and will by again. (Posted on 3/16/12)

Q: How accurate and how often should I clean my AR 15 using this ammo?

Posted On: 1/24/12 By: justin

A: This ammunition is no more or less accurate than the vast majority of bulk, FMJ-type 5.56/.223 ammo. You could clean it as often as you want to, or you could keep adding more lubricant/oil and shoot until the rifle breaks.
Q: CAN YOU TELL ME THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AMMO VERSUS WOLF OR BEAR?

Posted On: 1/23/12 By: COLE ESTILL

A: All three are made in Russia and feature steel cases with bimetal jackets, which are standard for most Russian ammo. They are loaded within .223 max pressures and are an economical alternative to American-made brass cased ammo, especially for those who do not reload.
Q: What are the pros and cons of FMJ brass casings vs. polymer coated steel?

Posted On: 9/30/11 By: Ron

A: Brass cases can be saved and reloaded or sold/traded to those who reload ammunition - steel cases are not conducive to reloading and are worth very little once they have been fired.
Q: Since the hole in the hollow point is barely noticeable, how much expansion can I expect from this round? Given the light weight and small caliber, I'm not expecting tons of difference from the FMJ. Question is: Would it make a good varmint round?

Posted On: 9/29/11 By: Mark

A: The hollow point in this bullet does not promote expansion or fragmentation. It would not be ideal for varmint hunting.
Q: I have been told some firing ranges will not allow this type of ammo to be shot at their range is this true and why?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Jeffrey

A: Some ranges do not allow ammunition that attracts a magnet. This is for various reasons, the foremost of which is because those who run the ranges believe bullets with steel in them to be armor piercing.
Q: Have you had any complaints about the steel casings chewing up the firearm?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Scav

A: No, we have not.
Q: what primer is used with this ammunition

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Anonymous

A: This Tula ammo uses a small rifle primer.
Q: How dirty is this ammunition? I have heard that these steel cases are coated and that they gunk up the bolt and chamber of the rifle. Are they safe to use on a regular basis?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Todd

A: These Tula steel cases have a polymer coating which resists extreme temperatures and will not cause the problems you describe. They are safe to use.
