These cartridges are much less expensive than many others due to their use of steel cases. Although they are not reloadable, steel cases are much less expensive to produce than brass ones. They offer good reliability due to their polymer coatings, which reduce friction in the magazine for smoother cycling.
Tula ammo is loaded in Russia and uses non-corrosive Berdan primers.
