Tula ammunition derives its name from its birthplace, the Tula Cartridge Works in Tula, Russia. This same plant also produces many of the products branded in the United States as "Wolf Ammunition".
The Tula Cartridge Works plant was founded in 1880 and is currently one of the largest ammunition manufacturing plants in the world. 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.

The steel cased ammo I bought however, left a little to be desired. I bought 1000 rounds of the TulAmmo not really knowing the difference between the steel and brass casings. One of the local ranges that I went to first would not allow any firing of steel casings at all. I went to a different outdoor range and made it through two mags without incident, on the third mag however I experienced a serious jam in which I couldn't even pull back the charging handle. After getting help from the range master in clearing the jam, the very next round jammed the same way. After clearing the second jam, I was done for the day after deciding that it was worth destroying a $1500 gun using the steel cased ammo. The range master had indicated that is a common issue they witness with AR style rifles shooting steel cased ammo. Perhaps you might have better luck than I did. Just do your research before you buy. I now have a little over 900 rounds that I do not want to put through my rifle.
