When you think of Russia, you might think of colorful buildings, bears, or submarines. You might also think about ammo, and you'd be right to do so. At the Tula factory south of Moscow, massive quantities of ammunition are manufactured. Even firearms have been made at Tula, especially during World War II, when the factory was critical to Soviet efforts to hold off the German Army.
Nowadays, the Tula factory is privately owned and exports ammunition to the United States under the Tula Ammo brand. One of the products they have the most expertise in manufacturing is 7.62 x 39. I fired nearly 1,000 rounds of this ammo through various rifles and found that it performed pretty well.
I did have a few problems with a Czech-made vz. 58 and a Yugoslavian AK, but the Tula ammo functioned perfectly through a Chinese SKS, a Russian AKM, a Century Arms VZ-58 , and a Hungarian AMD-65 that is a legally registered machine gun with a suppressor. In these firearms, Tula functioned without any problems. Did I mention that it worked great in a machine gun?
The bi-metal jacketed bullet used in this ammo isn't meant for great accuracy, but it's more than enough for average range day shooting or plinking. If you're looking to feed one of your Eastern Bloc rifles, buying ammunition made from the same region is a good idea. Tula is an affordable and reliable example of what Russia has to offer.

A Frugal Yet Quite Effective Ammo Choice/Great LG Service
Obviously you can buy many different more expensive ammo choices in 7.62 x 39...But for most of what I do it's entirely unnecessary and a waste of my money. For range-use it's a no brainer and for most other needs as well with the possible exception of competition. I hear a lot of people rant against this ammo due to its proclivity to "tarnish/rust" if bought for long term storage...Well, granted I am SUPER conscious about the condition of any of my possessions including those pertaining to my firearms/sports/shooting hobby so I sore my steel case ammo accordingly and, consequently, never see any compromise in its appearance and or performance.
As far as service goes, it's LuckyGunner a well-known leader in its industry so when you deal with them you expect the best and that's precisely what you get! Never had a single problem in the orders I have placed going back 15 years and I bet if I did the math on what I've saved I could by boxes upon boxes of more range ammo today!
Awesome for the price
I was always iffy and against steel cased ammo, but when shooting an AK-47 it doesn't matter. This ammo works great, never had a jam and fired over 500 rounds in one day. One hot 100 degree summer day very humid as well, and still no rust on the casings that I didn't fire.
Good Stuff....Good Price
Never had any problems with this ammo, better get it while you can.....the new "Cold War" is on it's way! Lucky Gunner shipped quickly, and double boxed by just asking at no extra cost. Love working with these guys and gals....CANNOT beat the price per round (make sure you compare Apples to Apples before you say not true)......no one has it cheaper and shipping cost is VERY reasonable.
Great service from L.G. and great ammo!
I started shooting Tula way back when I got my SKS, have added two AKs to the party and have been shooting Tula all along.
Tula ammo is "accurate enough" to get the job done, Ive had no issues with the case rusting but I do store in a steel military ammo can.. Never had a failure to fire, ammo cycles perfectly every time and charges seam consistent.
Lucky Gunner was A++ top notch all the way, they shipped VERY FAST right after the order, UPS tracking number was good and it arrived faster than I anticipated. An adult had to sign for it, but I was glad for that.
I bought 2 thousand rounds off X39 for half the price of what the AR folks are paying for there brass, and I have a cartridge that hits like a bag of bricks!
Thanks to Lucky Gunner, and Tula.. Ill be back for MORE of this ammo!
12 Bucks will let you blow though your 1st case & look for some more . Enhanced fireing pin !
I get a new R GUNS AR 15 7.62X39 and took it to the range . The 1st 10 rounds miss fire ? The range Master said get a enhanced fireing pin and I did . I spend 12 dollars for one . And the next 290 rounds i shot just fine not a one miss fire.
Ammo performed well ,no issues at all with feeding or ejection .
Good ammo overall, no problems with the quality . Just cannot figure out why my Norinco SKS shoots high to the right even after major adjustments to the front sight with a quality site tool ? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Very impressed with Lucky Gunner they have set the bar high against the competition. Good ammo overall no problems with the quality .
Can't complain! No misfire's, feed issues, jams, etc. For me, these shot straight and true. Cleaning my WASR after 250 rounds wasn't a big deal at all. This was my first purchase from Lucky Gunner and once the prices drop back down, I'll be interested in doing business with them again.
I wrote a review and could not report on tulammo 7.62x39 because I had not used any YYYYYYAAAAAAHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO G o buy all you can, I only shot 100 rnds, Performed flawlessly. shot from a rifle with no rear sight, very good pattern under these conditions Will buy more . Thank you Hiedi
Ammo is excellent!
I have a wasr-10 I have shot 500 of a thousand rounds no FTF's all around perfect ammo for me. I had ordered my ammo on a Wed. had it mailed to the hunting grounds and it was waiting for me Friday when I got there. Thanks Lucky Gunner ya hit the nail on the head.
Cheap and reliable
I received my order at my doorstep two days after I ordered it. Everything came exactly as described, no problems at all. I've shot this ammo at the range before and everything fed perfectly. The ammo itself was very accurate too. With all of that being said, it is cheap, reliable, and accurate ammo. I will definitley be purchasing more.
