Details

This newly manufactured 357 Mag ammunition is great 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 Cartridge Works 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.

Video Transcript:

Tula Cartridge Works is a Russian ammo company that's been around since the 1880s, and today exists as one of the largest ammo makers in the world. They make a variety of economical products in various calibers that all meet European CIP safety and quality standards. For this review, we shot a couple of boxes of their 158 grain 357 Magnum load. Like most Tula ammo, these cartridges are steel cased with a polymer coating on the case to help with reliable extraction.

The cases are not reloadable but the primer and propellant are both non-corrosive. Despite what many people believe, Tula Ammo does not use a steel core bullet, but instead it's a normal lead core with a bi-metal jacket made of steel and copper. Some shooting ranges will not allow the use of bullets that attract a magnet like these. So be sure to check with your range. However, I personally, have never had any problems with ricochets or damage to targets using this ammo, so they should be safe as long as you're a reasonable distance from the backstop.

The first thing we noticed when shooting this ammo was the extremely mild recoil. It almost felt like a 38 Special +P load and didn't have anywhere near the felt recoil of any other Magnum load that we've tested. Tula lists the muzzle velocity as 1,280 feet per second, but my guess is, they measured this from a long barreled rifle and the number should be much lower out of a revolver.

We tested the ammo in six different guns and didn't have any problems with ignition or light strikes. We did have a difficult time extracting the spent casing from our Taurus revolver, and extraction wasn't quite as smooth as most other ammo in our other guns. If you shoot a lot of 38 Specials in your revolver, just make sure to clean out your chambers before using this ammo and extraction should be a lot smoother.

We tested accuracy from the bench at 15 yards, using a Smith & Wesson 686, with a four inch barrel. Results were pretty good and we were impressed with the group we got, considering the low cost of the ammo. If you want to plink with some Magnum ammo that doesn't kick quite as hard as some other loads, and you're not concerned about having reloadable brass, then Tula and 357 makes a great load for the range.

I thought these rounds were excellent! The recoil was like a .38 more than a .357 mag. Was accurate and I would recommend for plinking or just range ammo!! (Posted on 7/20/12)
