Tula ammunition derives its name from its birthplace, the Tula Cartridge Works in Tula, Russia.
The Tula Cartridge Works was founded in 1880 and is currently one of the largest ammunition manufacturing plants in the world. The Tula name has gained a following worldwide for its rugged, reliable, and economical product. This cartridge complies with CIP requirements and the casing features a polymer-coated steel casing with a non-corrosive Berdan Primer. The projectile features a bimetal jacket (contains steel and zinc) and a lead core resulting in excellent ballistics characteristics. Tula started using zinc plating instead of copper for several reasons, one of which is the cost, another is that zinc is a softer metal than copper, and should result in reduced barrel wear.
