The TULA Arms Plant was founded in Russia by Peter the Great in 1712. It has been a huge manufacturer in the cartridge world since its founding and it still is today. The TULA plant also builds various types of firearms for the military and sportsman. In addition to the firearms, TULA also manufactures different ammunition types for the most common Russian firearms known worldwide.

Those bullets are loaded into a thick-walled, tough, non-corrosive Berdan primed, heavy gauge, steel case with a polymer coating. They have a maximum case pressure rated at 39,800 PSI, or pounds per square inch. The muzzle velocity of these rounds is 2,396-feet per second of heavy duty, Full Metal Jacket, 7.62x39 strength. These rounds come in the instantly recognized "Spam Can" full of Tulammo 20 round boxes. Each Spam Can comes completely sealed and includes a can opener so getting into the can and getting to your ammo is easier.

A: The Tula 7.62x39 ammo in this can is packed in boxes of 20 rounds each. Storing the can in a cool, dry place is recommended for best long term results.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Paul

A: Yes, this Tula 7.62x39 ammo is non-corrosive.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Jason

A: Sealed spam cans of 7.62x39 ammo are approximately 14" x 6" x 4".

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Mike

A: No, the steel cases are effectively not reloadable.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: james hughes

A: These are sold individually, not as a pair in a wooden crate like the surplus ammo.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Brian

A: While this container will keep out moisture for a reasonable period of time, it is a bad idea to store ammo where it might encounter water.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Tom

A: The proper bullet diameter for 7.62x39 ammo as specified by both CIP (European standards organization) and SAAMI (American standards organization) is .311". This Tula ammo is loaded with properly sized projectiles. You will occasionally find 7.62x39 rifles with .308 bores and 7.62x39 ammo with .308 projectiles, but this is quite uncommon.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Clayton Jacobs

A: These Tula steel cases are not reloadable. Accuracy is comparable to Wolf brand ammo.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Bob

A: Any ammo will foul a weapon if it is shot enough. The Mini-30 is quite reliable and fouling should not be an issue with it. These cases have a polymer coating which does not melt under high heat and cause any problems with the chamber. Also, the bullet has a bimetal jacket - the outer layer is copper. Your Mini-30 most likely has a hammer forged barrel, which is exceptionally durable, and the outer copper layer of these bullets is much softer than the steel of your barrel. They will not have any great impact on the rifling of your barrel.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: paul

A: Ammunition packaged in these tins, stored properly in a cool, dry place as you mentioned, has been known to last for decades.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Scott

A: If stored properly in a cool, dry location, this ammo will last for many years.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Tim Van De Grift

A: In firearms designed to shoot steel cased ammo, such as an SKS or AK-47, there will be no noticeable difference in performance. Firearms designed to shoot brass cased ammo may occasionally have failures to extract steel cases on extremely rare occasions.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Tim Van De Grift

A: Russians are the experts when it comes to steel cased ammo, and even Hornady uses Russian-made steel cases for its steel cased ammo. US-made ammo is loaded with brass cases, which are reloadable, but also more expensive.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Mike

A: The bullet has a lead core with a bimetal (steel/copper) jacket.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Chuck

A: LCB stands for Lead Core Bullet.

Posted On: 10/21/2011 By: Phil

A: The spam cans of 7.62x39 ammo are approximately 14" long, 6" wide, and 4" high. Weight is approximately 27lbs.

Posted On: 10/20/2011 By: Michael

A: The proper projectile diameter for 7.62x39 ammo is .311", and the vast majority of ammo in this caliber (including domestically manufactured 7.62x39 ammo) is loaded with that diameter bullet (.310-.311"). Some very early runs of the Ruger Mini-30 were made with a .308 bore diameter, but newer Rugers and almost all other known 7.62x39 platforms are .311". An exception is the Century Arms VZ2008, which has a .308" bore. The practical differences are small and it is not likely to result in catastrophic failure if a .311" diameter projectile was fired through a .308" bore. However, it might be worthwhile to determine the bore diameter of your rifle - either by "slugging" the bore (a gunsmith can do that), or contacting the manufacturer and providing them with the serial number of your weapon.

Posted On: 10/10/2011 By: Lee

A: This ammo does not have a steel core. However, it does have a bimetal jacket, which is composed of steel and copper. You should check with your range to see if they allow bimetal jackets.

Posted On: 10/8/2011 By: Jim

A: From a bulk ammo standpoint, this ammo will be as good as any other when it comes to accuracy. Some European ammo manufacturers make match 7.62x39, but it is very expensive in comparison to this Tula 7.62x39 ammo.

Posted On: 10/8/2011 By: Robert

A: Norinco SKSs are great weapons, and this Tula 7.62x39 ammo would be a good choice for one. I think you will find that it is very smooth shooting.

Posted On: 10/7/2011 By: Anonymous

A: Tula is comparable to Wolf in terms of powder residue and/or carbon after shooting.

Posted On: 10/6/2011 By: Marc

A: Yes, this sealed tin of Tula 7.62x39mm is the best choice for long term storage. The sealed steel "tin" prevents air and moisture from entering the space inside. However, it is not filled with oil, because submerging ammunition in oil for long periods of time will render it useless.

Posted On: 10/5/2011 By: rob ayres

A: This Tula ammo is similar to Wolf and Brown Bear (Barnaul) ammo.

Posted On: 10/4/2011 By: Stephen

A: If protected from moisture and extreme temperatures, unsealed tins of steel case ammunition from Russia are well known to be perfectly safe to use, as well as completely reliable, for several decades.

Posted On: 10/3/2011 By: Matt

A: This Tula ammo is new.

Posted On: 10/2/2011 By: Kyle

A: Yes, this is newly manufactured ammunition. Ammunition produced in Russia and stored properly in these cans has been known to last for decades.

Posted On: 10/1/2011 By: peter

A: This Tula 7.62x39 ammunition is new production ammunition, and is not corrosive.

However, to answer your question, corrosive ammunition will not ruin your AK. Cleaning with soap and water is recommended if you shoot corrosive surplus ammunition. If you clean the rifle properly after shooting, nothing bad will happen to it.

Posted On: 9/30/2011 By: jason

A: Just under 30 pounds.

Posted On: 9/29/2011 By: Steve

A: Yes, but doing so might shorten the life of the ammunition if it was exposed to extreme hot or cold temperatures.

Posted On: 9/29/2011 By: Anonymous

A: Shipping will not be cheaper if you order two cases together, but it will be cheaper than shipping one case on two separate occasions or as part of two orders.

Posted On: 9/29/2011 By: David Savino

A: The sealed tins of Tula 7.62x39 ammo weigh about 27lbs and are roughly 14"x6"x4".

Posted On: 9/29/2011 By: Scott

A: Military surplus ammo from the 1970s and 1980s - and earlier - stored in these tins have been found to still be perfectly reliable when opened 20, 30, or 40 years later.

Posted On: 9/28/2011 By: James

A: This ammo does not come with stripper clips and we do not offer them individually.

Posted On: 9/28/2011 By: John

A: A lot of brass 7.62x39 ammo is actually difficult to reload because Eastern Bloc countries used Berdan primers, which cannot be decapped as easily as Boxer primers. Also, some brass 7.62x39 - like the Yugoslavian ammo - is corrosive. This is non-corrosive ammo, which is definitely easier on firearms, and allows you to have a more relaxed cleaning regimen. The metal parts of your rifle that come in contact with the case (such as the feed ramps, ejector, and chamber) should be heat treated and hardened to a far higher hardness level than these mild steel cases. The bottom line is if the rifle was designed to shoot steel cased ammo, using that ammo should not be of any concern. Even if the rifle was designed for brass cases, there is very little to worry about when it comes to non-corrosive steel cased ammo.

Posted On: 9/28/2011 By: Eric

A: No - when the can opener is used, the tin cannot be resealed by any practical means.

Posted On: 9/28/2011 By: kevin

A: At this time, the Tula ammo in a tin is available only in FMJ.

Posted On: 9/28/2011 By: John

A: No, this ammo comes packaged in boxes of 20 rounds each, there are no stripper clips.

Posted On: 9/28/2011 By: Sean

A: This Tula ammunition is newly manufactured, and is not surplus ammunition.

Posted On: 9/28/2011 By: Christopher

A: This ammo is not corrosive.

Posted On: 9/28/2011 By: Anonymous

A: No, these Tula cases cannot be reloaded.

Posted On: 9/28/2011 By: Rick Jensen

A: This ammo is designed for 7.62x39 rifles with a .310-311" bore. You should contact Ruger with the serial number of your Mini-30 and ask if it was one of the early models which had a .308 bore, or one of the newer models with a .310" bore.

Posted On: 9/28/2011 By: herb

A: Yes, this is the same ammo, just in a more durable container. If you store it properly, this ammo can last for decades.

Posted On: 9/27/2011 By: Brian

A: Similar ammo sealed in these tins has been found to be reliable even after 30 or more years have gone by.

Posted On: 9/27/2011 By: Jeff Blakeney

A: This is new production ammo. Military surplus ammunition stored properly in identical cans is reliable even after many decades have passed.

Posted On: 9/27/2011 By: David

A: This is brand new production 7.62x39 ammo.

Posted On: 9/27/2011 By: Brian

A: No, this Tula 7.62x39 ammunition is not corrosive and will not harm the rifling of your weapon.

Posted On: 9/27/2011 By: Chuck

A: The mild steel cases used by Tula for these 7.62x39 cartridges will not cause damage to a rifle's chamber, extractor, or other parts. The AK-47 platform is, in fact, designed to shoot steel cased ammunition.

Posted On: 9/27/2011 By: Dwayne

A: A special "spam can opener" is included, however, using a smaller can opener without the same length as the original would make it difficult. These cans were built to last. However, once you've opened it, you should have no difficulty accessing the ammunition in the future.

Posted On: 9/27/2011 By: Martin

A: No, this Tula 7.62x39 is not steel core ammunition. However, magnets may be attracted to the bullets because steel is used in the bi-metal jacket of the projectile.

Posted On: 9/27/2011 By: Martin

A: It is impossible to say exactly what other vendors have. This ammunition is manufactured in Russia by the Tula Cartridge Works.

Posted On: 9/21/2011 By: Ross

A: Yes, this 7.62x39mm spam can is shipped with a can opener to help open this rugged can.

Posted On: 6/7/2011 By: Michael O'Neill

A: Tula's 7.62x39mm ammunition comes in a sealed metal spam can and is non-corrosive making it an ideal choice for long-term storage.
