Default Re: Tula ammo review

Good review, I was thinking about trying out some of their .308 and 30 carbine ammo.

Quote:
Bear ammo in Lacquer,Zinc and Brass plated steel case is made at the Barnaul Cartridge Plant,Barnaul has it's own line Bear ammo similar to the Wolf version mfg. by the Tula plant but I've found the Bear to be much better quality. Barnaul also makes a line of ammo called Monarch which come in steel case as well as some brass case handgun ammo versions that are made by other mfg,similar to the Wolf gold line brass case ammo which is made by Prvi Partizan.

I've shot a lot of the steel case 9mm ammo through my Ruger 9mm revolver with excellent results but haven't tried it in the c9 as of yet.

http://eng.barnaulpatron.ru/production/sportshuntingcartridges.html
The Barnaul Zinc ammo is what I have been using as practice/plinking ammo (in .223) for 3 years. It is a great round for the money. After 1000's of rounds I have not had any issues with it.

If I am reading this correctly the steel Wolf ammo is made in the same plant as the Tula rounds?

For the record Barnaul makes much better ammo than Tula. I have used quite a bit of both with the SKS. I eventually bought 500 of their Silver Bear line. Barnaul is the name of the city where the plant is located, and it's main industry is ammunition manufacture and it's been around a long time. Some guys called USASHOOTERS deal exclusively with Barnaul, and have great deals on it in all flavors, including 9mm. I will say their 9mm defensive rounds are nowhere near the quality of American hp, but they're great for inexpensive plinking.

kilroy, good job digging this one up. I have shot Tula out of my AR, 4595, JHP, and XD45 with no problems. My brother has had many failures to eject in his AR and a couple where he had to use a cleaning rod to knock the case out.

stick with the rem., win., hor. fed. ammo..
