Video Transcript:

When you see one of these oversized, green metal cans, you know it can only be one thing, ammo from Russia. But unlike most of the Russian ammo cans, this one does not contain old military surplus rifle ammo. Its newly manufactured 9mm pistol ammo from Tula.

Tula is one of Russia's biggest ammunition makers. And they ship a lot of affordable steel-cased ammo to us over here in the US. These sealed metal cans are often referred to as spam cans, named after everybody's favorite non-perishable meat.

Sealing up your fake pork product in a metal can makes sense, because nothing really beats it for long-term storage. It turns out the same thing is true for ammunition. You always hear that you should store your ammo in a cool, dry place. Well, you could probably stretch that rule little bit with these things.

I wouldn't necessarily want to try out this theory, but I bet the ammo in these cans would hold up to a couple of decades in a leaky basement in the Florida Everglades. The outside will get corroded and rusty. But it's supposedly airtight and watertight, so it really takes a lot to damage the ammo inside.

Of course, this presents a minor problem when you go to access the ammo. Unlike spam or sardines, there's no convenient pull-tab to help you get the lid off. So how do you liberate your wonderful new ammo from it's hermetically sealed prison?

The obvious solution is to try to cut it open. And when that doesn't work, maybe use a hack saw or power tools. No, real power tools. Oh, that might be a bad idea. We'll have to get creative. You can try melting it. No, with acid. But that might hurt the ammo.

Wait. What's this? Oh, right, a can opener. Fortunately, for you and anyone living with you, every can of Tula ammo ships with a heavy-duty can opener. It's probably not the fastest method, but it's the best way to safely open the can without damaging the ammo inside or yourself.

Inside the can, all the ammo is packed nicely in the center with cardboard around the sides for cushioning. The 900 rounds of ammo are divided into 18 50-round boxes. The load in this one is a 115-grain 9mm. The steel case is not re-loadable, but uses a non-corrosive primer. It's coated with a thin layer of polymer to help increase shelf life and reliability.

Bullets have a bi-metal jacket made of copper and steel. But despite rumors to the contrary, the core of the bullet is lead. Even so, some shooting ranges believe the bi-metal jackets are a little rough on backstops and steel targets. So make sure this ammo is allowed at your range.

After we figured out how to get in the can, we got to shoot the ammo to see if it was worth the effort. We used six different guns to try it out, five pistols and one carbine.

One of the first things we noticed was the mild recoil. Compared to a lot of other 9mm loads, this round is pretty soft shooting. So if you plan to blow through all 900 rounds in a day, your arms shouldn't get too tired.

For the most part, we didn't see any issues with function or reliability of the ammo. But we did run into one failure to fire problem. In our Beretta carbine, the primer of one round went off, but failed to ignite the powder.

There was just enough force to send the bolt back. And the cap of the primer flew out of the primer pocket. Since the powder did not ignite, the bullet stayed in the casing and didn't lodge in the barrel.

No damage was done. And the rest of the ammo fired as expected. We took the carbine back to the 25-yard line and fired groups for accuracy from a bench rest. We ended up with one big hole just below the point of aim, which is pretty respectable for the humble Russian cartridge.

Despite the one failure to fire, the Tula ammo performed well over all. The steel casings didn't pose any problems for our test guns. And the mild recoil makes it easy to shoot. More expensive ammo might provide better quality control and reloadable brass cases. But if you want to stock up in large quantities so you can take your future grandkids to the range, Tula provides an economical option with their sealed cans of 9mm.

Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Fri, 12 Jul 2013 12:30:45 +0000 ) : Hey James, Thank you for reaching out and we're sorry for the inconvenience! We're working to get more of the Tula spam cans in stock, we know they're a popular item. We hope to have more Tula 9mm in stock very soon.

Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Tue, 03 Dec 2013 15:07:05 +0000 ) : Hey Darren, Thank you for the note. We're hoping to get more of the Tula "spam cans" soon. They're very popular but it may be a while. Generally, we want to get as much ammo in stock as possible right now and we don't typically know what we're getting until it arrives at our warehouse. Hopefully Tula has more of these on the way! Sorry, I know that's not a specific date in response to your question. We know it's frustrating and appreciate your patience.
Jeff Edwards ( Wed, 18 Jun 2014 04:25:39 +0000 ) : hello, i was curious if this ships with the actual metal "spam can" as well as the ammo. if it was clear in the description and i missed it im sorry. thank you!
Jeff Edwards ( Wed, 18 Jun 2014 04:28:06 +0000 ) : nevermind i see it now.... derp.
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Wed, 18 Jun 2014 12:35:42 +0000 ) : No worries Jeff! Just holler if anything comes up in terms of questions!
Roland Vanags ( Fri, 11 Jul 2014 23:52:31 +0000 ) : USE FOR TARGET PRACTICE/NOT FOR DEFENSE.If one misfires its too risky.

Q: Hi! How much does a 900 round spam can of 115 grain Tula 9mm or a 1000 round pack of 180 grain BMI 40 S&W weigh? I'm trying to figure out if I can stay under the airline limit for my checked bag. Thank you! LaRue

A: Hello LaRue, The 900 round spam can of 9mm should be about 30 pounds, and the 1000 round case of 180gr. FMJ in .40 S&W is about 43 pounds.

Fantastic ammo for range use. Shot all 900 rounds thru my CX4 storm with no misfires or jams. I will be buying more soon.
This was my first time using steel casings, but I have no worries after this experience.
Lucky Gunner is the only place I buy ammo now.
Keep up the great values, whether it is high end ammo or cheap range ammo, I always get great quality ammo at the best prices. (Posted on 7/24/14)

I've always order from lucky gunner but the 9 mm spam can 900 rounds wasn't any good alwas jam and lots of defective rounds my girlfriend shot about 10 clips and every clip had at least one defect but all the 7.62 and 223 ammo is awsome and great price just don't buy the 9mm in the spam container cause it's junk everything else is great and fast shipping (Posted on 7/24/14)
Poor primers Review by JB

I would avoid these unless they are strictly for practice on the range. Even then, you will be treated to about one primer malfunction in every 20 rounds. And they are dirty.

Good news is you will get plenty of opportunities to practice malfunction drills. (Posted on 7/23/14)

Just took my Tula 9mm out this weekend and I loved it. I shot 300 rounds though my Sig SP2022 and it worked great. I had one round jam while rapid firing but other than that it seems fine. Plus its fun to receive the ammo in the big tin can that needs a special tool to open it up. Thanks LG, I will be using this ammo from now on. (Posted on 7/21/14)

Good ammo, fast shipment, made in RUSSIA however Review by Jerry
Performance

I purchased this 9mm ammo for target practice. The order was shipped promptly and arrived undamaged and reasonably quickly, although I did not request expedited shipping. I did request the additional unmarked box primarily to reduce the likelihood of pilferage. The ammo has fed well and I have no complaints except for one. Due to a lack of attention to detail on my part, I did not notice that this ammo was made in Russia. As a rule, I do not purchase anything from Russia due to a desire to avoid supporting their economy (hence their government) in any way. I will pay more for ammo produced in other countries, if necessary, in the future. Other than that, I have been pleased entirely with this purchase. (Posted on 5/18/14)

Just got out to the Range to shoot some of my Tula 9mm - 115 gr FMJ ,from the 900 Round Spam Can. I found the can was really quite easy to open with supply'd can opener. My suggestion would be to order a smaller amount of Tula ammo first to make sure it cycles well in your firearm. This stuff is great, shoots a little on the dirty side, but if your like me and take care of and clean your firearm you should have no problem with it. I think this is good ammo for the money and for shooting paper, cans, ext you cant beat it. (I call this stuff, fun at the range plinking ammo)
Hope this helps, murph (Posted on 12/11/12)

This was my first online ammo purchase online and my first with Lucky Gunner. I was pleased with the speed, accuracy of the order, and customer service. I found the website easy to navigate and very straightforward in it's layout and pricing.

I found the ammo to be a great value for the money. I have fired about 400 rounds of it through my Sig Sauer P226 Tak Ops and have had zero jam's or issues. it is the right fit for shooting on the range or practice. I may try the the Mag Tec next or the American Armory brand. I would recommend this ammo if your looking for a good deal on 9mm bulk ammo.

I highly recommend The Lucky Gunner to all my friends!
