Great practice ammo for the price.
This is a great ammo for the range.
1000 rounds comes at a very reasonable price and while a bit sparky and dusty, there have been no misfires or malfunctions after about three thousand rounds.
I will definitely buy this product again.
Tula Tula the live long day!!
I found the ammo to be fine, I use it for practice as most do. I was waiting for a breach or misfire, 500 round into an order of 1000, zero. Yes, it is a bit dusty & indoor ranges don't want steel mixed with brass. Answer: Yo "BullsEye" clean your equipment regularly & practice with it outdoors, lord knows you need to do both!!!
I read other reviews before trying....so I was a bit skeptical. I ordered..... received fairly quickly and took out to the range. For pocket carry, I use a Glock 42. I had no issues at all. None......other than cleaning afterwards..... the ammo shoots dirty. No biggie for me....my pistol are babied. I've used Tula in my other Glocks.....my 21, 22, two 27's as well. No issues in any caliber. It's a great value for range days. I used it in both my S&W Shield .40 and my Bersa 380 compact......no issues (greatly underrated pistol), as well as .223 in my Colt AR and my beloved Ruger Mini 14 (heavily modified). Again, dirty, but always goes back. No accuracy issues. My buddy had issues with the 380 in his Kahr....as well as his Keltec in both 9 & 380...but in all fairness......those guns have issues frequently.........not to bash.... they are finicky little guns.
In all...... great deal for a cheap way to play at the range!
Good practice ammo..........dirty..........good price
I have about 1000 rounds fired from my Bersa 380 and my Taurus Curve 380. Initially, the Taurus had some FTE, but after a couple hundred rounds, no problem. I attribute this to the Curve being a new gun and had not been fired. The Bersa eats it up with NO problems. Like others have stated, it's dirty but a good practice round.
Jams up my 380 bodyguard.Numerous fail to feed errors.
You get what you pay for. Tulammo in my 9mm runs fine. Usually have a few stovepipes in one 7 round clip. Never had a misfire or hangfire with it. (i've shot about 200 rounds using a S&W Bodyguard)
My Sig P238 eats pretty much anything put through it. I really didn't have any problems with FTF's/FTE's, but this ammo was key-holing at 5 yards. Pretty unacceptable in my book. I've used Tula before with relatively few issues, but I won't buy it anymore- especially in this caliber.
will not buy again
First, I didn't realize they were steel cased (my bad) so I have to go to the outdoor range instead of the indoor range. No biggie. Have at least 1 misfeed in every mag (8 shot mag). I took 500 rounds of the Tula, 100 rounds of Remington, and 100 rounds of Fiocchi to the range. I shot 400 rounds of the Tula and had 1 or 2 misfeeds in every 8 shot mag, switched to the Remington and shot all 100 rounds with no misfeed, then switched to the Fiocchi and shot all 100 rounds with no misfeeds. In comparing the 3, I believe (this is just my opinion) the feed issue is because where the casing meets the rim is more of a square channel on the Tula were the other 2 are more tapered.
Cost, Maintenance, Accuracy
It is inexpensive I don't clean my glock (lightly) 42 until after 100 rounds but that's normal with any other round; heat dissipation does not affect unless you're at a hundred and ten degrees or higher; recoil feels like a 95 grain... I say for the price practice, it is good ammo for everything else:
Purchase more quality ammo for accuracy and Critical Defense: ie. Hornady XTP 90gr. 25yd-3.55" group or Win. Silvertip 85gr. 25yd-3.58″ grouping. For Critical Defense whatever makes you happy...
Save your money, Don't buy Tula!
Agree with rugerfan#1. Tula 380's are junk. More that 20% misfires in the Ruger pocket pistol. And several failed ejections/jams. Will use up what I have and never buy Tula again. Quality control with the Russians must not be a high priority. Cheap price doesn't mean anything when the product fails 20+% of the time. I'm guessing it's a tolerance problem at the face of the primer: noticed very small indentations on the misfired rounds.
Works as expected
Don't buy this ammo thinking your going to get high performance. This ammo is great for the range and doesn't break the bank if your not reloading yourself. 380 tula ammo out of my p238 functions just fine, maybe a stove pipe every 50 rounds, but mainly from the week recoil spring in the p238. I do suggest buying this ammo of your looking to do drills and malfunction drill never hurts to practice. You never know what might happen in the heat of battle.
Misfires and jams
Used many boxes of Tulammo 380. Approx 10 to 20% misfire and about 10% jam in ruger's pocket pistol. Used other brands with no problems. Will use up what I have left and will not buy any more. Low cost is not worth it, especially if used for protection.
Beware - read your manual
I tried to use this in my Kahr P380 and just about every other round failed to feed. I studied my manual and it warned against using steel-case ammo, so my bad. Every round fired so I can't complain about that and the 9mm caliber works well through my Walther and CZ. I wouldn't say to anyone to not use TulAmmo, but I would emphasize if you haven't used steel cased ammo before, be sure your firearm is friendly to it!
Good Ammo, No Problems Here
I bought 3-50 round boxes of this ammo. 380 is very hard to find in my area, it fly's off the shelf as fast as it's put up. Out of 100 rounds I did not have one problem from this ammo, it seems to be a little dirtier but for the price I'll keep shooting this ammo.
I bought a small box of this ammo for my BodyGuard and it would not feed the first round. Do not waste your time or money. I have used this ammunition in 7.63x54r and it was filthy and every third round would jam. It's not the caliber, it's the manufacturer. Steer clear!
I purchased two boxes to use as target practice in my S&W Bodyguard. The Bodyguard will not shoot these .380's - when you compare them to a Lawman 380 - there is a big difference. I compared them to a 9mm and they look more like a 9mm and not a 380.
