    Tulammo 9mm. test

    I don't think I'll buy it again, even though it's the cheapest at Walmart.
    Watch the video.

    None of my other ammo makes any smoke that is this noticeable.
    This is the dirtiest ammo that I have shot.
    Actually I've never seen the Federal or RWS I shoot make ANY smoke.
    I shot all 100 rounds.
    The video is the last 25 rounds.
    The target has 50 rounds fired at it.
    Anyway, other than the smoke, only one other complaint.
    I could not load more than 10 rounds in one magazine, once I hit 13 I just could not get another round in, so I stayed at 10.
    But I can load 15 of brass ammo, Federal or RWS. Go Figure.
    The other magazine had no problem with 15.
    So here is the target at 15 yards.

    Try shooting empty plastic coke bottles with and see if the bottle catches one of the rounds. I've recovered two rounds (out of a box of 50) from things they should have punched right through.
    Always remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle your targets
    Reduce them to shreds
    Reuse shoot them more than once
    Recycle whatever is left over

    No more Tulammo to shoot.
    However I can go dig a few out of the sand bags.

    Well, a few rounds made it all the way through the backstop through the sandbags and a previous hole in the plywood.
    They didn't go very far, found them within a foot of the backstop laying in the pine needles.
    3 are intact, one is sheared and flatnosed, probably hit a couple others on the way through.
    I can't take a photo, my camera won't focus any closer than 24"

    Tried a pic anyway.

    I fixed the hole in the plywood of the backstop.
    Nailed another 5/8" piece over it.
    Should be good to go, if not, I have more wood.

    Unless they start selling 7.62x54R or 9x18 Makarov at my Walmart, I have no reason no reason to differentiate those boxes from the shadows in the case. My 945 hates it, so I have no reason to even use it. Most 9mm Luger ammo is within a dollar or two pricewise, so no need to touch the stuff for my Hi-Point 995. As far as my Marlin, I wouldn't even bother trying to put TulAmmo .22 LR's in it. That just sounds like a bad idea in my head. If I didn't have a pair of Eastern European guns, I wouldn't buy any steel cased ammo at all.

    Something else I noticed with the Tulammo 9mm.
    It does not look like it can be reloaded.
    Looking into a brass casing I see one small hole at the bottom to press out the spent primer.
    Not in the Tulammo case.
    There are 2 small hole either side of center halfway to the case wall.
    No way to remove the spent primer.
    I guess I might as well just toss them.

    Yeah, usually no way to reload steel cased stuff. Most of the time is because the pressure degrades the integrity of the case after firing. Even if you could get the primer out easily, I wouldn't recommend trying to reload them at all. That's another reason alot of indoor ranges won't let you use steel case, they can't clean up after you and reload them.

    The two hole case you refer to is called Berdan priming. The single hole case is called Boxer primed. The funny part is the Berdan priming system was invented herein the state and the Boxer priming system was invented in Europe. Not the boxer system is more popular here and the Berdan system is more popular is more popular in Europe.

    Steel cases will not harm your gun. The steel in the case is way softer than the steel the chamber and barrel are made out of. I shot only Wolf ammo in my HK USP when Wolf was actually cheap and I was not set up to reload. I had no problems at all. The answer to the dirty ammo is simple. Clean your gun when you get home.

    Just my $.02 worth.

    Never shot the Tula ammo but have shot the old Wolf BB stuff,it shot pretty well,was dirty and smoked a little but no more than my cast bullet loads. I don't shoot the stuff anymore because I reload all my own ammo but I keep a couple of boxes of the Wolf around for when I don't feel like chasing brass and want to pop off a few rds. Most of my Wolf 9mm stash is old stock I paid $8 a box for,the Tula 9mm at WM is higher than CCI Blazer Brass and Federal.

    Difference between Boxer and Berdan primers and primer pockets.

    I bought a case of their .22lr once. Had a lot of squibs and rounds that wouldn't fire at all ran them thru several times no luck. I don't like to slam on a company but i could never spend money on their ammo after that. On a side note i watched a lot of your videos from your link i found on youtube. I really enjoyed them especially your 5 plate shooting off a rest. Great shooting and grouping.

    Bought 100 rounds of Tula last week. Trip to the range last Friday with my wife. She was shooting her PT111 MP, I my 24/7C 9mm. Of the fifty rounds I fired I had zero problems. A couple of rounds seemed under powered compared to the rest. My wife on the other hand had 4 FTFs. Didn't fire on the second strike, but all 4 fired on the third strike. She is a better shooter than I am, BUT NOT BY MUCH, so grip was not a problem. Cleaned both guns when we returned home, she cleans her's. They were no dirtier than my usual brands. I may buy more and try it in my 809 and 24/7 and see what happens. Looks like it could be OK range ammo in my gun.
