    Plan on using it for range or self-defense?

    not crazy about it despite the price. steel casing in my chamber makes me nervous. don't like the possible wear factor. i stick with aluminum,bronze, or brass,. also can get blazer, for range practice, at the same price.

    Did a little more research on this some people love this ammo for the range looks like most of them are shooting Glocks I picked it up just to take a look at it going to test it with my Sig p229. Others having issues with misfires, some say don't shoot steel some say it won't be an issue not planning on buying it much

    Some guns run fine with it and some don't like it,but it is cheap ammo which is why you hear of misfires more often with it and the other cheap stuff. I personally don't like steel cased ammo but not for the reason of scatching a chamber because it isn't hard enough to do that.If it has a shellac on it that stuff can build up in the chamber if you shoot enough of it but I don't like it because steel doesn't contract after firing like brass does,it's slower.That means your extractor is working harder to pull it out and it has caused problems with extended use.Little bits of use aren't a big deal but I wouldn't shoot it all the time.Some do and don't have problems,others do.

    TulAmmo has worked just fine in my 1911 and seems to have a little extra pop to it, it shoots consistently and is not too dirty. I don't use it all the time, but have no problems buying it.

    I shot 100 of this round last week in my PX4 compact .40. Shot nice. Pretty clean.

    Shot many hundreds of 9mm rounds of this thru 2 Hi-Powers an XDm/CZ-75 and Kel-Tec p-11, 3 1911's in 45acp + a XD and lords knows how much thru my AR. I need to stock up on the 7.62x39 for 2 SKS's + AK an wish I could find some 9x18mak for 2 pistols. I don't baby my guns they were made to shoot, think SHTF, this gun should be able to shoot ANY ammo when I need it to save my bacon. I've not had 1 issue with Tulammo and Wolf only a few duds, hell I've had some duds with Federal Hydrashoks and other quality ammo.

    Tulammo is steel cased polymer coated. It's not going to hurt your bore. I've used it in my Mini -14 and it did well, no issues, to my surprise it grouped very well. The only thought I would have is running polymer coated ammo through my AR, as it may heat up and leave residue in the chamber(DPMS does not recommend it), but many folks shoot the stuff through AR's with no ill effect and swear by it.

    I have used their 9mm. Funs pretty good in my 9c. But does run on the dirty side.

    I have reloaded steel case tul stuff 7 times without any problems. I haven't reloaded it more because I had to move on to get the rest of my pistol brass loaded.
