This newly manufactured 223 Remington ammunition is PERFECT for target practice, range training, or plinking. It is both economical and reliable and is produced by one of the most established ammunition plants in the world.

Tula ammunition derives its name from its birthplace, the Tula Cartridge Works in Tula, Russia.

The Tula name has gained a following worldwide for its rugged, reliable, and economical product. This cartridge complies with CIP requirements and the casing features a polymer-coated steel casing with a non-corrosive Boxer Primer. The projectile features a bimetal jacket (contains steel and copper) and a lead core resulting in excellent ballistics characteristics.

This ammunition is rugged like the country where it was manufactured and keeps its qualities under temperatures ranging from -4 degrees Fahrenheit to 122 degrees Fahrenheit ensuring that it will perform when needed most.

John Jackson ( Mon, 04 Jun 2012 00:51:09 +0000 ) : can you reload the cases after shooting it.
Shannon Mercer ( Mon, 04 Jun 2012 13:56:05 +0000 ) : No. It's steel cased.
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Mon, 04 Jun 2012 14:11:00 +0000 ) : These rounds are steel-cased (which is a harder, more brittle metal that expands differently than brass) and steel presents a challenge for most casual reloaders. They are boxer primed which is half the battle. You might research "reloading steel cased ammo" on youtube for more opionions.
Rio Rancho Garage Door ( Fri, 08 Jun 2012 09:17:08 +0000 ) : I would hope so... but Lucky is right research is smart :)
Chuck Klasek ( Tue, 12 Jun 2012 23:05:32 +0000 ) : This is the one problem I've seen with making an issue of the type of primer: IT'S A MOOT POINT WHEN THE CASINGS ARE MADE OF STEEL AND CAN'T BE RELOADED ANYWAY. Might as well save a few $ and buy the cheaper Brown Bear and get yourself a few extra rounds for the same cost of the tunafish can these come in. Heck, you can always put 'em in a mil-surplus ammo can with some dried rice if storage is an issue...
Sabrina Baker ( Tue, 12 Jun 2012 23:48:41 +0000 ) : hey dad, u cant comment on fb stuff if ur not gonna be on fb! Its not fair 2 those of us who cant tell when its a mass comment or just a comment! Lol! U kno i luv u! U really should get back on fb tho!!!! REALLY!!!!!! ;)
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Wed, 13 Jun 2012 15:25:07 +0000 ) : Hi Chuck, you make good points about the primers, but I believe Tula warrants at least an extra penny or two more per round based upon other factors. Plus the ammo tin is way COOL (-:
Stacie Long ( Sun, 24 Jun 2012 16:22:22 +0000 ) : facebook is gay.
Maureen Troiano ( Fri, 06 Jul 2012 18:34:58 +0000 ) : This stuff is for playing. Blow 3 to 4 hundred rounds & smile. then go trap shooting like my wife and I do. May you always leave the field or range with a smile!
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Mon, 09 Jul 2012 02:03:05 +0000 ) : Great ammo. Great Advice!
Jerry Errico ( Sun, 15 Jul 2012 22:30:16 +0000 ) : my bushmaster ar-15 will only cycle brass ammo, all others just wont load after 2 0r 3 shots, any suggestions why would be very helpful :)
Christopher Errico ( Sun, 15 Jul 2012 23:59:31 +0000 ) : Ask my shit-head brother, he may know.
Daniel Black ( Mon, 16 Jul 2012 01:28:28 +0000 ) : Um....use brass ammo.
Emanuel D. Errico III ( Mon, 16 Jul 2012 02:07:49 +0000 ) : You trying to cycle that russian wolf crap? Yea there some tricks to get it to work but it might require some gunsmithing. Not sure if it's worth it.
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Mon, 16 Jul 2012 13:03:42 +0000 ) : Hi Jerry, Unfortunately, not every weapon will cycle steel-cased ammo as steel is a harder metal with different expansion characteristics than brass.
Daniel Black ( Mon, 16 Jul 2012 15:26:28 +0000 ) : Just for the record Jerry, that steel wolf ammo does'nt cylce through my Mini-14 very well either.
Chris Addison ( Thu, 19 Jul 2012 04:53:36 +0000 ) : i have a rock river and bushmaster xm15 and they both shoot steel fine.. dont know if something is wrong with yours but id say its the ammo, steel casing can be very particular sometimes. you'll be better off using brass in the long run anyway
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Fri, 16 Nov 2012 13:08:14 +0000 ) : Yep, maintenance is so important. However, I've seen cases where 2 of the same model (and identically cared) weapons run differently on the same box of ammo. Sometimes experimentation with different ammo is necessary.
Jim Davis ( Thu, 27 Jun 2013 19:18:37 +0000 ) : Anyone here know if this ammo attracts a magnet? Obviously the steel case will but how about the bullet itself?
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Fri, 28 Jun 2013 12:18:53 +0000 ) : Hey Jim, Good question, thanks for asking and you're correct about the steel case. As for the bullet, the bi-metal jacket on the Tula .223 projectie contains steel and copper and is considered magnetic. If you have any other questions, please just let us know. Take care!
James M. Tuck ( Sun, 21 Jul 2013 11:59:58 +0000 ) : No problems. Shoots great.
Josh Greezy Mills ( Sat, 18 Jan 2014 21:02:00 +0000 ) : spray some rem oil on the rounds theyll cycle fine
Tina Anthony ( Tue, 27 May 2014 23:50:21 +0000 ) : I don't believe that, if it will only cycle brass cases there is some thing wrong with it and it will only get worse and eventually it won't cycle brass either.
Tina Anthony ( Wed, 28 May 2014 00:05:27 +0000 ) : Heidi At Lucky Gunner brass is harder than the steel in these cases and the elasticity in brass is better than steel, the steel in these cases is softer than the brass cases and being softer it does not contract as much as brass and there fore some times causes ejection problems. If you have ejection problems change your ejector spring for a new or stronger one and it will most likely fix the problem.
Josh Greezy Mills ( Wed, 28 May 2014 00:28:29 +0000 ) : spray a lite spray of rem oil on it...cycles fine
Nelson Snipes ( Wed, 04 Jun 2014 00:05:06 +0000 ) : One man's junk is another's treasure ...last resort..!!
Thomas Steinruck ( Wed, 04 Jun 2014 01:04:30 +0000 ) : $119 at Walmart . The only reason to buy it is for long term storage. The same ammo is available for a few bucks less in easy open cardboard.

no problems i will be ordering more Review by mel
No problems I will be ordering more

great value Review by Kevin
Take 500 rounds to the range and have some fun without breaking the bank. Used the ammo in a new AR that had only shot 250 rounds through and was cleaned before shooting this ammo, I did not see any difference in the soiling of the weapon. I cleaned it without any problem.The rounds shot well and I did not have any misfires or jams. Great ammo and a great price I will buy this again. (Posted on 9/9/14)
Great Ammo on my 5.56 Review by Viurni
Took to range with brand new AR pistol in a 7" barrel and this ammo worked excellently. Lots of flash but I have a pig on the weapon so that was expected. Lots of fun and no jams. Will buy a second one if available.

good stuff Review by DeE
I've shot a few 1000 rds of tul ammo. From 40cal to 223.. no problems. Most importantly..lucky gunner is a respectable site worth ordering from. (Posted on 6/29/14)
The service could not get any better, its just the best Review by Capt Doc

Tula ammo Review by Toucan Stubbs
I have fired thousands of rounds of Tula in a variety of calibers and have nothing but good things to say about it. (Posted on 7/21/13)
Great value and fast service Review by Old MP
All of the ammo I have ordered has been of great value and the service has been exceptional! All of my orders have arrived the day following my placing the order. It is extremely rare to place an order and receive it the next day but with Lucky Gunner it happens. I ordered some of the new .50 cal. Ammo cans and liked them so much that I ordered more of them. There is a terrible smell when you first open the cans but it goes away after airing out the cans. They are great for storage and for organizing your ammo and other items. Thanks Lucky Gunner! (Posted on 12/14/12)
Very good for just plinking Review by 45longcolt
The shipping was fast! For the low price this is great plinking ammo. Both my AR and Mini-14 are well broke in so no feed problems. Long rang accuracy is not great, but for what it is it is good. I will probably get more to burn up so I dont go thru my expensive stuff. Also very pleased with Lucky Gunner! (Posted on 12/14/12)
Fantastic plinking ammo Review by Rabu
I was a bit skeptical after all the videos I've seen of people's AR's jamming on this stuff, but I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. Surprisingly my 14.5" Mid-length with carbine buffer rocks this stuff like no tomorrow, I did feel a differential in power going from plain American Eagle .223, to this, as the recoil wasn't as harsh, so it does allow for a good base for plinking. I can't say I reccomend this for anything but just fooling around with your rifle however. Save the good brass-cased .223 for defense / hunting.

Oh, P.S. This stuff passed the 4 magazine bumpfire test :) (Posted on 8/14/12)
Good price shoots good. Review by Greg
Great bang for the buck no pun intended. No problems thus far ran 2 30rd mags back to back out of M&P15. (Posted on 7/29/12)
Tula didn't auto load Review by Dave
My brand new 223 Bushmaster didnt do well on the Tula 223 ammo. The Tula ammo
Didn't seem to produce sufficient gas pressure
To effectively operate the bolt. Results, weapon
Couldn't auto load itself. I fault the ammo because
With no other changes, I loaded a clip with Hornady
Zombie rounds and the weapon functioned properly.
I probably will not purchase Tula anymore for auto loading rifles. (Posted on 7/26/12)
A+ Review by patrick
No problems with ammo and fast delivery . Watch out!!!! look for spam can opener in shipping box. Had hell opening can then found opener when I was throwing shipping box away (Posted on 7/4/12)
Not for me Review by JHart
I had good luck with this until one day it locked my bolt with a jam. I figured it was a fluke. A week later my father in law wanted to shoot my AR so I will handed to him first shot locked it up again. Both times had to slam a cleaning rod to clear it. May have been a bad batch in two different boxes but scared me away from stocking up on it for shtf. (Posted on 6/20/12)
Awesome deal, excellent ammo Review by Doug
I was hesitant at first, but after reading the other great reviews I decided to try Tula ammo since it's the cheapest ammo I've found anywhere. This ammo loads and shoots great; absolutely no feeding issues through my S&W M&P15 Sport. The only issues I have are 1) The can is a pain to get into; I had to take a flathead screwdriver and hammer to open it, which only took about 5 minutes, and 2) I would prefer the rounds be loose packed instead of boxed into groups of 20. But hey, for the value I can certainly live with both of these trivial issues. I highly recommend this ammo. (Posted on 6/12/12)
Good Experience! Review by Rube
I had never ordered ammunition online before.  I heard of LuckyGunner from a friend who recommended using them.  When I went online, I really appreciated the "on hand" inventory dsplayed on each product indicating how much product was currently available.  When I found the ammunition I wanted, placing an order was very simple.  Receiving the product was even better, it took only 2 days to receive my order.  Keep up the great work LuckyGunner and I will use you to make orders in the future.  Thanks again. (Posted on 6/5/12)
