Not as bad as people make it out to be
I have an aero precision milspec rifle that I made myself. Shot 400 rds so far and have had zero issues. It is dirty ammo so make sure to clean your gun. And don't expect super accurate ammo either. When I bought the ammo it was $185 for 1000rds at the current price of $200 I'm not sure this is worth it anymore honestly when you add in shipping.
I do not recommend. Used to shoot this out of my cr15 Bushmaster for a cheap plinker round and never had problems. Put it in my rock river and it did not like the rounds at all. Jammed almost every shot. I gave some to my buddy to try in his brand new Anderson arms and shot incredibly inaccurate. On the 6th round, the bullet blew up mid air and sprayed the target like a shot gun. Luckily it made it out of the gun and didn't harm the rifle or worse either of us.
Have bought a number of different Tula Ammo with no problems until now. Bought 2000 rounds of 223 55 gr HP because of this great price. Unfortunately I am having frequent failures to eject. I can see the extractors is just scraping the fired round lip and not extracting it. Have tried ammo in 4 different rifles with same problem periodically. So I am stuck with a lot of rounds that are good only for target practice. Cannot use such an unreliable round for hunting pigs.
Great ammo, great prices, what's not to love about lucky gunner?
got my order in a timely fashion, immediately went to the range with some of my new big boy toys and had a great day at the range. Not one misfire, not one dud among the bunch. My rifle was happy eating all the .223's I could feed it. Lucky Gunner is MY one stop shop for all things ammo! Thanks again for great prices and reasonable shipping costs!
Good enough to shoot.
This ammo works good enough. You need to lube the bolt group and chamber a little more then normal as this ammo needs to run wet. The stuck case issue is because the polymer will glue it to the chamber wall after its hot. Do not let a round sit in the chamber while cooling. Open the bolt. You should have minimum issues.
I can't recommend Tula in .223
Tula is my go-to for 9mm - cheap, reliable, and even more accurate than pmc, blazer or white box.
Given my positive experience with Tula 9mm, I ordered 1000 rds of Tula .223, but unfortunately it does not perform nearly as well. The price is still the cheapest (maybe)*, and the accuracy has been fine, but I have experienced about a 1-in-10 failure to fire rate with Tula .223. It's not a gun problem- no light strikes; the primer is sufficiently impacted every time with a nice deep dent right in the center. Personally, it makes me uneasy to have a pile of live ammunition sitting around with a struck primer. Now, a dud can happen, but the regularity with which it has been happening with this Tula ammo has been unacceptable in my estimation and I will not be purchasing it again.
Circling back to the value - if 10% of the ammo never fires, your price per [functioning] round goes from 23.9c/rd to 26.5c/rd. It may still be the cheapest option, but it's something to consider.
Lucky Gunner is great. Not all Tula is crap- but in this shooter's experience, their .223 ammunition is not worth buying.
Great in my Armalite
I like to shoot and don't like spending a buck a shot. Not only is this Tula the lowest cost available, but so far I've had absolutely NO malfunctions or excessive dirtiness. I not only use it in my Armalite (LECM4), but also in my bolt action hunting rifle. Maybe some others got a bad batch ?? All I can say is so far so good and only two bits a shot. Unbeatable !! Just ordered another Thousand rounds from LuckyGunner.
I bought this about 1 month ago in a 500 set. I have a DD V3 and never had issues putting rounds through it. Always keep it clean and properly lubed. I put 5-6 rounds through the rifle then bam, would not feed the round. Pulled back the bolt got 1-2 off same deal failure to feed. Swapped mags thinking that could be the case, and once again failure to feed. I put maybe 50-60 round through the gun and almost every 2-3 rounds I would have an issue. Seems like they catch on each other as they are feeding.
Tula is Junk!
I've been shooting my Colt AR-15 .223 HBAR Match Target for many years now. I have never, repeat never had any ammunition problems from any manufacturer until today. Today I shot some steel cased TulAmmo. I figured I would give it a try just to see. The results were absolutely horrible if not outright dangerous! As a note; my AR-15 is always clean and properly lubricated before I go shooting. After about 60 rounds I had my first failure to eject. On my 78th round I had another failure to eject [stovepipe] and this time the extractor was jammed so I couldn’t even pull the bolt back. Luckily, the round did fire so I didn’t have a miss-fire in the chamber! I had to disassemble the rifle to free up the bolt and had to use a cleaning rod to knock the case back out of the chamber! TulAmmo is junk! TulAmmo is also very, very filthy! I have never had this much black soot all over the inside of my gun! I won’t shoot nor would I even think about giving anyone my remaining rounds! Stick to brass and stick to American made ammo!!!!
Excellent Value For Very Good Ammo
I've been sampling various brands and styles of ammo for my Saiga .223, and the steel cased Tula 55gr HP has proven to be the lowest-priced ammo it reliably feeds and fires. Only one brand was more accurate out of my Saiga, during bench tests, and only by a tiny margin (which is surprising out of a Saiga, which isn't known for sub-MOA performance). However, I have put way more of the Tula through - just shy of 700 rounds - and have yet to have a single FTF or FTE. After firing the Tula ammo, I find it's no more dirty than any of the other ammo I fire. As such, this has become my plinking ammo of choice, but I genuinely wouldn't feel limited if I were using it for target shooting or self defense - it performs practically as well as the more expensive brass-cased ammo I tested, and is generally more accurate than I am (off the gun-rest, with iron sights or red dot, I get identical groupings as any other 55gr ammo). This is very good ammo at an excellent price, and LuckyGunner.com is definitely the best place to order it from (specially in 1000rd packs).
Good value for .223 ammo. No FTEs or FTFs, no problems at all. I did notice a little but of lacquer build up on the extractor after high volume shooting (250 round in a pretty short time frame), but a little bit of Hoppe's No. 9 and it cleaned right off.
worth buying if on a budget
very accurate and cheap to buy . the coating casue issue when gun get hot but if you lube your bolt carrier and chamber with good gun oil then there is no jammed problems. that what happen but the remedy was a good fix.
Get what you pay for
LG is a great company that I would highly recommended for your ammo purchases. The shipping and communication were great.
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.
I actually bought the same ammo in 55gr fmj which is currently not available. I originally posted after shooting about 100 rounds that all was well. I've since burned through about half of the 1000 that I bought without any kind of problem. My rifle is chambered for 556 NATO , but I'm not enough of an expert to know if that has anything to do with it. All I know is that I will definely buy more. Thanks LG
Stocking up on ammo & got some of this Russian .223 by Tula. Have not had a chance to fire it yet because of employment commitments & rain. Am taking other reviewers at their word. Our club does not permit steel core ammo, but this is lead core with a thin steel jacket according to ad.
Heard bad things after I purchased before I shot. I must say I don't know what peoples problem is. This stuff is great for the money. No misfires, and accurate enough. Getting ready to buy another thousand. Not to mention the service and promptness was unbeatable! Cheaper than dirt who? Ha! Luckygunner is where it's at!
