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 Berdan Primer. The projectile features a bimetal jacket (contains steel and copper) and a lead core resulting in excellent ballistics characteristics.

- Thanks-a-lot! Review by Luckyles

- Avoid the 380 caliber of TulAmmo at all cost Review by Paul
Then I ran into the 380 TulAmmo. Ouch. Very very bad. If you hold it up next to other types - Federal or Hornady for instance - you can visually see that it's fatter and not milled correctly.
If you take out your barrel and drop a bullet in the end, you'll see that it doesn't seat correctly. The end sticks out farther than conventional brass cartridges. I don't know why.
In both P238 and P232, we had multiple FTF, FTE and FTRs. This was in two different boxes of TulAmmo 380, before and after using Federal brass which worked perfectly fine.

- Avoid if you're using a Walther PK380 Review by RyanMN
-My CZ will eat anything, including children.
-Smaller pistols have tighter tolerances
-There appears to be less laquer sprayed on Tula than other steel cased ammo.
That being said, I had multiple failures to feed, eject and fire with the Tula ammo in the Walther PK380. Mind you, this is not an indictment of this particular brand or ammo. Your mileage may vary depending on your gun. However, if you do carry a Walther PK380 as your primary or backup gun, I would recommend brass cased ammunition only. (Posted on 5/8/12)
