    Anyone have any experience with Tula Ammo? http://tulammousa.com/
    Found a good deal on some 45 but never heard of the brand before.

    It works fine.

    Plenty of woefully uninformed folks will try and tell you that the steel cases will damage your extractor (it won't) or bore (it also won't). Some people will ***** that it's dirty, but so what...I've put over 500 rounds of Wolf (same ammo, different name) through a Glock 21 in a single day class, and it was a non-issue. If you're gonna clean your gun after you shoot it anyway, what's the huhu?

    As cuda says the ammo is fine. You'll get your ammo snobs who'll say (in my best girl voice imitation) "Eww it's dirty". I don't see it being any dirtier than WWB and the way I see it if you don't want your gun to get dirty, don't shoot it.

    I use it all the time. I actually have more problems with the white box ammo than Tula Ammo.

    Thanks. According to Tulammousa.com Tula Ammo is not Wolf.


    Looks like the factories produced Wolf at one time but no longer do. I would imagine that in the end, the two brand are so close it doesn't really make a difference. I'm very new to firearms and from what I have read online ammo brand and for that matter, firearm brand and type, is extremely subjective to the user. some people are just brand loyalists. Some read way to much into numbers. I have formed the opinion that each person should formulate there own opinion. And then plaster it all over the web ;). So, I will try different brands of ammunition, decide which I like and which performs the best for me and my weapon. Of course I will let you know what I like. :D

    Thanks everybody.

    as they say it is a bit dirtier, and has a little different smell when fired, But it ran just a good through the XD as remington, or WWB.. good stuff.

    If you shoot at an indoor range I would advise checking with them about using it. Our range & many others will not allow steel cased / bi-metal ammo due to the risk of fire.

    Fire? Why would a steel case or bi/metal bullet cause a fire?

    risk of fire??? how in the world would that happen?? i know the shells are hot after firing, but i wouldn't think them to be any hotter that brass..

    i think it has to do with them being able to reuse for their reloads, but thats just me..

    hmm.. Im new to all of this but what I have heard is that you dont shoot steel cases in the XDMs but in glocks or in a XD its fine.

    I dont know and can only share what I have heard. Part of what I heard was listed above with the steel being able to damage the bore and other things I have heard were the coatings on the steel can cause problems.

    I dont think I worry about "dirt" but I do want reliability out of my guns. I just bought 10 packs of 100 round WWB to replenish my supply and figured the cost difference was $1.03 per 100 for the brass cased WWB over the cheaper TULAmmo.

    If anyone could shed some light on the steel cases and their coatings and whatnot, I would appreciate it.

    Fire is not it, it is more to do with the range selling the uncollected brass. If there is steel mixed in there, that could be bad.

    Word has it that our local range makes enough off of brass and lead to cover the bills.
