Tulammo

I shot some a few weeks ago, and it worked great! Don't be fooled by the people who talk about steel on steel. The steel they use for tulammo is a thin pliable steel, so it can expand. It won't hurt your gun at all so shoot the hell out it!

I bought 100 rounds of Tulammo at Walmart and fired them at the range yesterday. I had 4 FTF in the batch. You could clearly see where the primer had been indented from the firing pin. I didn't try to re-fire them, because I thought I'd heard that is a bad idea...

Today I went out with 50 rounds of Sellier and Bellot, no problems at all. So of all the different types of ammo I've fired, WWB, PMC, SB, Hornady, Tulammo, Remington, the only brand so far that had a problem was the Tulammo.

What I have heard about steel case ammo is that it's bad for the extractor. It's obviously not as soft as the brass stuff so it wears your extractor out faster. Mostly I have heard people having problems with steel case ammo in their AR's rather than pistols though. Again, these are things I've heard not personally experienced. I don't shoot and most likely won't shoot steel case ammo until I know more and hear more positive feedback.

I personally do not like it - I spend the extra $10 on the 250 pack Remington UMC also found at Walmart for around $59

I just recently moved to one of the last "Still Free" States (AZ) and I just bought the six boxes Wally World had in stock. Unlike where I used to live, I did not get any strange looks buying so much ammo at once.

Not to mention that it absolutely rocks that you can legally carry concealed out here with no CCW. I don't think I will ever leave.

That's all I use in my AK. My ARs are alittle more selective in what they like, I've had some failure to extract issues with the tul .223.

It is a softer steel as opposed to the hardened steel of your barrel therefor not a problem. He is FOS, but most people who work at chains are.

I've heard the same thing; it's hard on the extractor for an American weapon vs a European one.
Gunsmith friend of mine says American made weapons work best with brass and European ones work with both they use ALOT of steel over there and they are designed for it. Steel is all the BPOL(German Police), German and Russian army use.

Which makes me ask where is the XD or (M) made? Says Croatia on mine.

I've shot over 200 rounds of Tulammo thru my Taurus with no issues. I picked up another 300 rounds at Walmart ($14.xx) and none of it will chamber in the same gun. All different lot #'s, so not just a bad batch.
I emailed Tulammo and they promptly returned a message saying they will make it right.
Four days later I recieved a refund check for the 300 rounds.

I can't say that I'll ever buy Tulammo again, but they were stand up enough to take care of a customer and make it right.
