a friend of mine put 50 rounds of 9 mm Tul Ammo thru his glock 26 with no problems. $9.57 a box at wal mart. federal is about a $1.00 more per 50 rd. box.
It works fine, I had a couple of light loads, no squibs or anything just light loads 2/100, i did get a bit more smoke from the barrel, (kind of a cool effect) but I didn't notice it being that much dirtier when I cleaned it...tyw469 said:I find this very interesting considering .45 acp in the Houston area is getting very very expensive. I think I might pick up a box or two of this Tula and see what it can do and how dirty the gun is after. Has anyone fired it through a 1911?
Yeah thats the funny thing, i would fire 50 Winchester white box, followed by 50 Tula, I did that twice and the Tula came out smokier both times. I don't really care it was just kinda strange, it reminded me of the old Korean war surplus stuff I used to be able to get actually. I had a friend years ago get a hold of an old wooden crate with metal cases of the stuff.... quite a few prairie dogs met an end to that crates contents! At that time you could get the old military coloured smoke flares, pop smoke in a hole....Jake3501 said:Even Winchester White Box is fairly dirty.

They probably wouldn't if they could find some marked "Made in China" .....like most everything else in their stores!!!joecil said:I kind of find it amazing that Wally world would select to sell a Russian brand of ammo. Hell the best ammo they sold was RWS at about $12 a box of 50. Now that is excellent ammo in that it isn't tuned down like the Federals they sell, 124 gr, shoots clean and is very accurate. I was told by the two local Walmarts in my area that no one will buy it say it is foreign made, go figure since it is rated one of the best ammo makers on the planet. Here it seems the Federals an Remington both are all they can sell. Even Federal doesn't list the stuff they sell at Walmart.
