Details

This newly manufactured 45 Auto 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 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.

Muzzle Velocity: 850 fps
Max Pressure: 19,900 psi

Video Transcript:

You may have noticed in the last few years that Tula Ammunition has been readily available on the market. What you may have not known is that they've actually been around since 1880, and that they are currently one of the largest ammo manufacturers in the world.

I was recently able to test some Tula .45 ACP ammo. This was their steel case, 230 grain, full metal jacket load. Something that sets Tula apart from other manufactures is their use of bi-metal jackets. This means they use a combination of both steel and copper. Now, many may wonder if steel in the case or bullet may harm their firearm. Put simply, this combination of metal is soft enough to use any serviceable firearm, and an added benefit is that the jacket holds it's shape very well.

Unlike some Eastern European ammunition that you may have encountered in the past, this is non-corrosive and boxer primed. The steel case is not as workable as brass and is not intended to be reloaded. If you're not a reloader, this really doesn't matter to you. And you can shoot more by buying steel at a lower price than brass.

I tested this ammunition in two different 1911s. When it comes to .45 ACP, if it works in the 1911, it will probably work in anything. And I didn't have any problems with this Tula ammo. In fact, it shot great. It was very accurate at 10 yards from the stand. It has the same velocity and energy as 230 grain .45 ACP hollow points, so you can practice or train effectively with this ammo. It would also be great for just having fun at the range. Tula's ammunition is not as clean burning as other ammunition I've tried in the past, but this had no effect on reliability in either pistol.

I think this TulAmmo .45 ACP ammo is a great deal, and I wouldn't disregard it just because of the steel case.

Not exactly the caviar of ammunition, but who cares? Review by Charles
Quality
Performance

These rounds discharge so much smoke that each shot obscures the target for about a second on a calm day. At this price, however, I can wait till the wind blows to shoot. They're a little messy used with a Kimber Custom II ACP. Nonetheless, I clean every firearm at the end of day it was fired, so messiness of rounds is not a concern. Some stats for 1000 TulAmmo rounds: 0 misfires, 1 FTE. (Posted on 7/7/12)

Great ammo to utilize while providing for students training for their CPL. Have had only 1 jam and I'm guessing it wasn't the ammo's fault.

I fired 150 rounds of Tulammo in .45 ACP through my Taurus 1911. Out of that I only had two failures to go into battery, and one stove pipe. The failures to go into battery only happened while bump firing the weapon, and the stove pipe happened with no magazine. I think this was a light load. Therefore, it did not cycle the slide all the way back. In all I would say that this ammunition is reliable, and I would definitely buy it again. (Posted on 4/9/12)

I recently shot 100 rounds of 45 auto through my new 1911 Taurus. I didn't have any problems with feeding or ejection, but I did have 5 FTF's. This was shot from a clean gun and I didn't have any misfires fro three other types of ammo. I heard that the Tul ammo shot dirty and had sticky residue. I did not experience this. This ammo was no dirtier than when I shot other american ammos including remington and federal. The accuracy seemed on par with other ammos too. For the money, these were good target loads. Due to the misfires, I can't recommend it for your primary protection (Posted on 12/29/11)

Bought for the value. Haven't had any failures to speak of in both Glock 35 or SA 1911.
They do shoot quite dirty compared to other name brands, such as WWB. To those complaining about a few FTF or Jambs, I'm sure it is possible. But then again, these were never intended for combat carry purposes. Just plinking. I'd never rely on these in a defensive situation, if at all possible. (Posted on 6/11/11)

For the money, this ammo is a pretty good deal. Out of 1000 rounds I've run through my SW 1911, only 1 didn't go bang. Its great target ammo and is as accurate.... well as accurate as I can shoot. It feeds well and hasn't caused any jamming to date. Its true, its dirty ammo and it smokes a lot. You gotta expect that with cheap ammo though.
