Russia, a land of bears, submarines defecting to the United States, and ammunition. 120 miles south of Moscow is an administrative region called Tula. Inside this region is a city called Tula. Inside this city is a factory named Tula. Not very imaginative, but maybe that's because they've been busy making lots of ammo.
The Tula factory has been in operation since 1880 and made weapons and ammunition for the Russian military for decades. In fact, it's one of the largest ammo factories in the world. I shot a lot of Tula 223 ammo recently and learned a lot about it in doing so.
One of the first things you need to know about Tula, especially when shooting it through an AR-15, is that it's not intended for use in mil-spec rifles. If your AR has a smaller gas port, that is, if it's a Colt, Bravo Company, Daniel Defense, Bushmaster or similar; then Tula is probably not for you. However, if your rifle has a larger gas port, you can use Tula with very few functional problems. In fact, you could shoot it for thousands of rounds without cleaning. And as long as your firearm is well-lubricated, you will function just fine.
If you're not sure whether Tula will work in your rifle, buy a few boxes and shoot one round at a time with an empty magazine inserted. If the bolt locks back to the rear every time, it should be reliable in your firearm.
The bi-metal jacketed bullet used in Tula ammo will wear a rifle barrel faster than a standard copper jacketed bullet. But the reduced cost of Tula ammo means that over time, you'll still save money even with the added cost of barrel replacements every 6,000 to 10,000 rounds.
When it comes accuracy and velocity, Tula is about average. This is quite good considering that it's one of the most affordable brands on the market. If you haven't tried Tula before and are looking to shoot more and spend less, try their ammo. You might find that it's the perfect answer to your needs.

Very affordable and reliable shooting
Bought 1000 rnds of this .223 steel case and I shot about 475 through the palmetto I put together. Ran amazing not a single jam. Bullets looked nice and neatly packed. Dirty but awesome for breaking a gun in or if you’re on a budget.
Affordable, reliable, accurate
For the price, this is really solid ammo. My twin 13 year-old boys had no problems shooting tight groups at 100 yds with a 2x red dot through their AR-15s. Cleaning the weapons was easy compared with some other "dirtier" low-cost ammo we have recently shot.
Affordable and reliable range ammo
i belong to two ranges and use a lot of ammo. This russian ammo is great! Tula and Wolf both. I was told its corrosive, but i clean my weapons after every range visit. Ive yet to have any problems. And lets face it. American brass ammo or any brass ammo is too expensive. i swear by this stuff. (NOTE: Thanks for the review! The Tulammo loads in this review are NOT corrosive--LG)
Can’t beat it for range ammo
I’ve always heard not to shoot steel that it would wear down the gun jam stovepipe fte and So on. Then I met 78-year-old gentleman at the range who was there for about four hours shooting nonstop. He told me he has been shooting steel case for decades with no issues as long as you lube the firearm properly with quality oil. after will over 10,000 rounds with no real issues to speak of I’m a believer and For the money you save and by the time it’s needed you’ll be way ahead of the game should you have to ”replace“ anything on your firearm
Constantly jam in my AR
The steel just doesn't seem to be slick enough to feed into the chamber. Every other round gets jammed or just stays in the mag. I thought maybe it was the mag but I used brand new pmags and had the same results.
Great Value Great Performance
These work well, especially if you have the right setup for your AR. If your looking for true performance spend that little extra. However, if you factor the cost of barrel replacements and ammo cost in general nothing else will top.
Failure to eject and light primer hits
I bought the 1000 rounds because all of my buddies run these in their ar's and they run perfectly fine, so I figured why not. Well my brand new ar wouldn't run more than 5 rounds in a row without problems. It would either not feed properly or wouldn't eject the round. It was super frustrating and a big disappointment. I then run 50 rounds back to back of fiocchi through it and the gun loved it. Buying these rounds is definitely a gamble
Great value for plinking.
Using these in a 580 series mini 14. Shooting 8" to 12" steel at 100 yards. No failures yet and accurate enough for this distance. Happy with this purchase.
I’ve shot thousands of rounds between a few different rifles. One barrel didn’t last past 6k rounds. I eventually built a rifle specifically for shooting steel, and the only issue I came across happened once with a FTE and that was because I ran it dry to test the rifle’s limit. After that I oil up every 200 rds or so and have not had that issue again. Test a box before you buy to see if your rifle likes it or not. If it does, oil up and shoot!! Accuracy isn’t phenomenal, but I’ve been able to get 2-3” moa at 200 yards with a red dot. Good enough for me. Definitely clean your rifle after range session, it’s a little dirty, but not horrible. Overall I like this for target shooting, especially for bulk ammunition it’s cost effective. I’m currently at 8k rounds with a barrel I’m testing for life expectancy and have been able to buy half a dozen others with money saved, so that’s a plus.
Always go with Tula for all your plinking needs!
I've always been a fan of Tula ammunition. Great bulk value, dependability for target practice. Of course they are not the prettiest rounds around, and are somewhat dirty. As long as you take care of your firearm, you can't beat Tula's line of ammunition.
Very first round, dead....
Yup, the very first round I fired was a dead round. But after that one, I fired 599 more with no issues whatsoever. It is a dirty round and your AR will require cleaning but who here does NOT clean their AR after taking it to the range?! I have 400 more rounds to go through but rest assured I'll be ordering more of this brand. Would I use it in combat? Probably not. But for plinking at the range, absolutely!
BEST AMMO EVER
Honestly, I LOVE TULA !!! I HAVE been shooting Tula brand ammo, both 5.56 AND 7.62X39 for close to 25 years now...I can Honestly say I have NEVER encountered ANY problems with this stuff!!! EVER. Thank God for Luckygunner.com! !!
4 Stovepipes & 18 Duds
I bought a 100 ct. box of the ammo above and I had 18 duds all had good dimples from the firing pin and 4 stovepipes out of 100. Poop ammo, but I guess you get what you pay for. I paid about $33.00 for the box. I do not recommend one bit!!!
Affordable practice ammo that works
I've shot close to 5000 rounds of this stuff over the course of several years. Only ONE malfunction can be attributed to the ammo. I shoot an FN15 and a custom built rifle and they both eat right through it. If you have issues, run the gun wet, Use CLP to clean your BCG regularly. Its dirty ammo but for the price, its worth it. If your gun can't cycle steel ammo, it's your guns fault and you should sell it and buy one that can. More ammo = more practice and range time!
I'm not a fan of steel cased cartridges. But my opinion should be kept to myself for my personal reasons. With that being said Tula is the only ammo that has not fed properly in my M&P AR-15. The problem I experienced was jamming in the magazine as the cartridges were feeding into the chamber. I noticed Tula cartridges are slightly longer than the other manufacturers I use. I'm not sure if that could have been a part of the problem. I do not like malfunctions. Because Tula malfunctioned twice in my rifle and no other brand has, I'm giving it a "not in my rifle" review. It would be nice to see other ammo manufacturers meet their price.
Great for the price
Good cheap ammo. Isn't the most accurate when run through Ruger American predator bolt action, but still went bang every time. Had a 3 inch group at 100 yards in a rifle capable of 1 inch or better. Overall good price for some fun ammo but not for long distances
Since one of my local outdoor stores had a sale on several inexpensive brands of 223 ammo me and a friend decided to do a side-by-side test of them. We simply compared group size for 10 shot groups at 100 yards. This Tula 55 FMJ placed second among the 6 brands of ammo we tested. Also, after firing about 300 rounds of this ammo I had no failures of any type.
140 rounds and no problems
so i went to the range today to zero a new 4 power optic for 100 yards. my rifle just plain wouldn't zero with this ammunition. BUT NOT FOR THE REASON YOU THINK: while my optic did not zero, it was due to a loose bracket i found out when i was done for the day.
here's the thing: i was going through both tulammo and brass interchangeably with my ar15. there were moments i honestly couldn't tell the difference until i saw the assorted cases on the ground.
this ammo will work fine in your gun if you take care of it and keep it clean and lubed as you are supposed to.
also about the rumor of case polymer melting against the inside of the barrel and causing problems: i was producing a mirage from the heat coming off my barrel today with rounds chambered, made zero difference. shot it all day long. everything was fine.
tulammo is fine. take care of your guns, and it'll be fine.
Can't beat them
I've now gone through between 800-1000 Rds in EACH of my 3 AR's, and have had ZERO issues with this round. The only significant downside I can see the them is their inability to be reloaded.
I get 2 moa consistent groupings with iron sights at 100yds, and considering I'm NOT shooting competitively, I'm more than happy with that. I also clean my weapons after every outing so any complaints regarding them running "dirty" sounds rather diva-ish IMO.
If you need a cost effective round for plinking or shtf, and are on a budget like the rest of the real world, I'd look no further.
My New Best Friends!!!
Alright, I've through Luckygunner's website before but this was the first time to buy ammo. LG, your my new best friends! Best prices, fastest shipping and satisfying website. Great work guys. I will be back for more.
Dirtier than most
Worked well in my PSA/Dragon Defense custom AR platform. Chamber was considerably dirtier, as well as, BCG after 500 rounds. Good for cheap target rounds, wouldn't place high in self defense category with considerable fouling of chamber and BCG after only 500 rounds though.
Value and quality
I have gone through around 1000 rounds with not even a single misfire ! I mainly shoot at less than 100 yards in a inside range. Just started shooting this style gun and glad to have ammunition that is trouble free and value priced.
So I have ran a lot of diffrent brands and by far for the price this is the best bang for the buck. clean your weapon good so it don't jam up in the bore and treat your weapon with respect. Bore problems occur due to not cleaning the bore and not oiling properly . Good luck and god bless.
Excellent for the price
Ran 500 rounds through 2 different AR's with no misfires. I clean my rifles when I'm done at the range anyways so it is here nor there on the carbon build up but I will have to say I expected worse according to the reviews and it didn't seem all that bad to me.
Goes bang every time.
If you're a high volume shooter or just want to prepare for the inevitable after the 2016 election, I highly recommend the Tula 223 ammo. Unless you're an avid reloader, there is no better value in the market.
Ive shot tula made 223 for nearly 10 years. Back then wolf ammo was using tula product in their boxes. Have tried barnaul years ago but the fouling was intolerable. Tula runs way cleaner. Few weeks ago, I shot up 300 rounds target shooting out to 300 yards. And hitting a manhole size steel gong repeatedly. Have had good luck with Tula!
Good range ammo
Very good range ammo. Fairly accurate, was able to hit a 6 inch steel plate at 150 yards. So more than accurate for plinking. A bit dirtier than most ammo, but I thoroughly clean my firearm after each range trip any way, so no big deal. The ammo functioned flawlessly in my Ruger AR556, both feeding and ejecting. Would definitely buy more. Great price and fast delivery from Lucky Gunner!
Junk Ammo! Almost ruined my AR-556!
Junk Ammo! Almost ruined my AR-556! Contrary to the photos, it's not copper plated FMJ, it's steel. Jammed several times in the bore & almost broke my extractor. Sadly I still have over half a case left of this junk.
Good bang for your buck
Had 3 bad primers in 600 rounds. Not bad for training ammo. Dirty, but I clean my weapons anyway. Cannot justify buying brass for training. (My old Olympic AR has fired 6k rds of wolf/Tula. Still functions perfectly.)
Decent ammo for the price.
It's not great ammo, but it's not terrible, either. It's definitely worth if for the price you pay. The case is steel, not brass, so it doesn't expand to seal the breech like brass does. This lack of sealing also causes a lot of the "stuck" cases in semi autos due to the gases and dirt blowing back and making the breech walls very dirty. The bullet itself is jacketed in mild steel, so it will cause faster degradation of your rifling, and many ranges will not allow steel jacketed ammo to be used. It's NOT steel core. And though it's a mild/soft steel, it is still nearly four times harder than standard copper jacketing. It has an outside copper jacket, but the jacket is so thin it really doesn't provide much of a buffer between your rifling and the steel jacketing. It's so thin that the only protection is really offers is corrosion protection for the steel jacketing.
But, with the exception of those drawbacks, it's still a decent ammo. It's very inexpensive and it's fairly accurate. The velocity is pretty even. Overall, if you keep your rifle clean, you should enjoy this ammo very much. For an afternoon of inexpensive target practice and having fun, you can't beat it.
Great product, great service
As always lucky gunner came through to provide for a shoot. Product was here very quickly. My half wit delivery man leave my packages outside of my building on the sidewalk, I always get the double box option from lucky gunner and it's free! So far that has been sufficient to prevent loss. I love lucky gunner and will continue ordering. As far as the ammo goes... It's Tula steel cased. You get what you pay for. I had no malfunctions, the only reason to spend more money on higher quality ammo to plink with is to shrink your groups. Group size aside, quality stuff.
Windham Weaponry CF ar15
Nearly everyone comments that this ammo leaves lots of dirty carbon residue. They are right. It takes longer to get the final, clean pad through the barrel after shooting Tulas, but the price makes up for the effort. Performance isn't perfect with 223 rounds. I seem to get a jam around 300 to 400 rounds with Tula, but recovery isn't complicated. For recreational shooting on weekends, Tula is okay. (Respective Tula cartriges work about the same in a 1911 acp and a 9mm, except I've never had a jam at all in about 2000 rounds with pistols.) Spend over a buck per round when you're practicing and shooting for serious match competition. Save a little when you're not.
not good for Slide Fire
Good value compared to local high prices & low availability. Used in Bushmaster Patrolman with SlideFire bump stock. Dirty ammo caused frequent jams and problems, maybe due to near-auto rate of feed & fire. Had no problems w/clean brass case ammo. No problems w/Tula in typical single shot operations.
I have not made time to shoot this ammo yet, out of town a lot this summer! However, I wanted to leave a review on the service. The ammo was delivered right on time, packaging was good, dry & the price is right. Thank you for excellent service, I look forward to loading these up in my aluminum mags for now and buying some P-Mags from you later!
Bought this for general plinking - i could have bought locally, but took a shot with lucky gunner. I was pleasantly pleased. This was my first online ammo purchase, and it came quickly, my order was correct, and at a good value. My only suggestion is to ship it discretely, maybe wrapped in packaging wrap or something that hides the ammo logo on the manufacturers box.
I have a DPMS AR -15, and shot approximately 300 rnds thru it with this ammo. Never jammed, tight grouping at 200yrds. After shooting and my barrel cooled, i noticed that it was clean of debris, so i swabbed it and to my surprise, it wasn't that dirty.! Good ammo .
awesome never any problems
i have a dpms mini sass and i have ran 2000 rds out of it with no problems.most important keep your toys clean .you can't beat the price and i have to thank luckygunner for the great job not ripping us off like so many other stores and website's thanks again
tula is boss ammo grab some today!
I have used tulammo since 2010. In several ar's, never a jam or misfire. I shoot with iron sights no dots, or scopes. I feel the old tula mfg wolf labeled wmc, and the current tula procuct are more accurate than the barnaul wmc, and poly. I dont think its loaded as hot as the wolf, labeled products, but what is hot, if you are missing what your shooting at? Load up while you can!
Good practice or range ammo
Been using Wolf/Tula for years. A lot of the cheaper R's won't fire it. Some that will are Colt, Daniel Defense, and BCM. Some that won't are DPMS, Vulcan, and Blackthorne. I was firing some last week, and a guy at the table next to me was firing Tula as well on his DPMS, and he basically had a bolt action rifle. I currently have a Dragon's Tail built AR, and it will fire any ammo you run through it, to include the Russian Steel. Overall, Tula is a good ammo to use for plinking or target practice, unless your AR is a picky eater.
223 Rem - 55 gr FMJ - Tula
first 30 rounds ran through fine. started 2nd 30 rounds and had failure to eject (FTE). ran rod through to get case out. reseated mag, (PMAG G2 30rds) fed in round, fired, FTE. this happened 4 times before i quit. all rounds that FTE had the steel edge the extractor grabs sheared off on the inside of the lip. I tried several brass rounds to make sure the bolt extractor was not the issue. They ejected as expected. I wanted this ammo for range / practice use only, but expected it to preform better than this.
for contrast, i fed my SKS 260 rds of 7.62x39 Tula with zero FTE.
I gave the 4 stars in performance as reference to the pattern made at 100yards with the rounds that did work. Nice torso grouping for them.
Great for outdoors short and long range!!!
I don't have an AR or Bushmaster but my Black and SS are great . no Jam ups no bore stuck ran 500 in the old black perfect then the SS better both at 90 meters hit orange clays on big dark hill with open sites. We hit I orange clay used for trap shooting we pick up the ones off the ground that are not broke or 1 half but hit 1 and then you have 4 small ones hit them no problem and my girl got back from IRACK war and she is a great marksmen in the army and was best female shooter with M-16 and all other types but she was hitting 1 inch peace 90 meters away 8 times no miss I cant hit good with the SS and she said Dad I love this more then my Gun when I was over or in the army. The ammo is great so far and after we shot 500 rounds we got home and cleaned them and the bores and action were not dirty at all. I could not be leave how clean they were but I did notice the punch was not like the old man reloads we use to get a 5 foot flame out the end in sun light even. keep up the good work and prices just so happy for are hobby and long storage locked up in huge safe with a small safe inside 4 ammo. Are safe is over 1 tone id like to se someone pic that up plus its bolted to the floor and walls so be safe now And Thanks.
good bang for the buck
i have only shot 240 rounds and so far so good. my mini 14 fired the same as other ammo feed trough it did. No problems so far. I always clean my guns after shooting so maybe I didn't get the problems other shooters did because of that reason. Would buy again in this price range for 1000 rds-good deal
Good Value & Performance.
Along with my son & grandsons we ran thru about 450 rounds in Bushmaster AR with no malfunctions. Great for plinking & targets, and a good value.
I did notice that the local gun range will not allow steel. Also they seem to shoot dirtier than brass, but we always clean weapons after shooting.
Great for plunking but very dirty.
After testing a thousand rounds or so, I really haven't had any problems other than the filthy burnt powder residue. Even corroded steel bolt parts in a matter of days turned rusty and caked on powder that wasn't at all present with other brands. I know my rifles and have used them for years, this ammo will require you to immediately thoroughly clean and oil and you shouldn't have a problem. If you don't clean after using this ammo, expect problems.
I got 1000 rounds before the ammo famine.
That said, mine isn't subjected to much in the way of atmospheric/humidity changes, so I can't speak to that. But it feeds great for casual, backyard shooting in my black rifle (not an AR), and doesn't seem any dirtier than other cheap, steel-cased ammo. Never had an FTF or FTE with it (again, not an AR).
Performance is ok. I'm no marksman, but I can tell a significant difference in group sizes between Tula and American Eagle .223AR (big surprise). The group size is 50%-100% larger with the Tula, but we don't buy Tula for sniping, now do we?
All in all, it's been great for me, and (at the price I originally purchased it at) it allows me to actually shoot a bit without seeing the dollars fly out of my ejection port.
Great Value, good source
Russian Steel case ammo is a great value for plinking. It stores well, it is reliable, and of course, cheaper than brass. I have never had an issue with it. It is true that some ranges do not allow it, so check with yours if you use a range. I shoot on my land so it isn't an issue for me. I also like Lucky Gunner. Fair pricing, great web site and good service, what's not to like?
Looking for a great value on .223 ammunition?
I've purchased Tula ammo prior to this, and never had a single misfeed, or, misfire! And, I've shot thousands of rounds of it. A problem most seem to have with FTF with any ammo, is the magazine they're using. The feed lips might be a bit too tight, thus pinching the cases when trying to strip a round to feed. This is steel cased ammo, so it's not going to gouge the cases slightly and feed anyway. It will gall/ bind. Also, the laquer on the steel cases will bind on some mags. So, before blaming the ammunition, if problems with feeding occur, try a different magazine first to verify where they problem truly lies.
Anyway, GREAT value and product. I WILL buy more again, SOON!
Good training and function test ammo, as accurate as it needs to be for 90% of AR type rifles.
Lucky Gunner is a pleasure to do business with. My first purchase was lost in shipping (Not this one). I received an answer to an e-mail very quickly. Also called as well. The problem was resolved right away in a friendly and very professional manner.
I have shot about 100 rounds of the Tula through my M&P-15 and so far no problems. I have heard some bad things about steel ammo but, it shot just fine. If you are not going to reload your own ammo I would recomend Tula.
Will not purchase this product again
FTF,FTF,FTF ......brand new Windham Weaponry AR, (no problems with cheap brass ammo) had to oil ammo down to get the ammo to feed and still had FTF after that. I will be buying cheap brass ammo for now on. The ammo didn't seem any more dirty than other ammo I have shot. I would recommend making sure ur AR shoots this ammo before buying a 1000 rounds.
Tula is some great ammo
I just shot 200 rounds through my M4 without a hitch. No jams, extraction problems, or fail to fire. Pulled out the bolt, and other than a haze on it, it wasent dirty at all. Same haze inside the flash hider, but ran my finger there, and the smudge didnt even transfer to my skin. I think this stuff is vastly improved now, and Ill be ordering more. Its accurate for rock busting out to 100 150 yards with the iron sights. You shooters with scopes ought to do way better than me. Tula is the way to go!
SEEMS TO BE DIRTY, I PUT A LITTLE SPRAY LUBE ON A CLEAN RAG AND GO OVER THE AMMO, THIS SEEMS TO STOP THE JAMS. BUT THE MORE WE ALL BUY FROM THE RUSSIANS THE MORE THEY RAISE THE PRICES. I THINK I WILL SPEND A LITTLE EXTRA MONEY AND BUY AMMO FROM THE USA.THAT WAY WHEN I FIRE MY WEAPON I KNOW TH E BRASS WONT JAM,AND. IF I GET IN A HARD SPOT. MY LIFE IS WORTH A LITTLE EXTRA,PLUS I CAN RELOAD THE BRASS.I WILL SAY I HAVE PUT AWAY A LOT OF RUSSIAN AMMO AWAY IN MY SURVIVAL GEAR AND TELLING MYSELF IT JUST FOR PLINKING.GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL.
Great Ammo Great price
This Tula Ammo is nice stuff. I just bought 32 boxes from Luck Gunner, fast and available is all I can say!!! Anyway ammo shoots great in my Colt CAR A3 4 out of 5 in the same hole on rest at 150 yds. The steel jacket is plated not coated with lacquer like some of the Russian stuff. Can it get better? Not for double the price! Trust Lucky Gunner to deliver fast and for an excellent price.
Good ammo power does burn a bit dirty
Over all I love this stuff cheep and when you are putting in 100 rounds in your Beta C and just rocking well you can't do much better unless you reload it yourself. It does get messy especially with a suppressor so I would upgrade if you want to go quiet, but if you want to make a lot of noise and not spend a fortune get ya a case!
Great Value!!! Not so great ammo
I bought this for plinking with my AR, it works fine but it is very dirty and you have to pace yourself to prevent the casings from overheating and getting stuck in the chamber. Definitely wont work in a bolt action!!! i tried running it through my remington 700 and the casing got stuck every time, and i ended up breaking the extractor pin. Overall great value, alright in semi-autos and dont recommend or bolt action at all.
DON'T RISK BULK ORDER - TRY FIRST
I thought I was being smart and ordering 500 rounds for my Stag Model 8.
Tulammo rounds won't work with it.
They won't feed, won't strip off the magazine, then when the gun heats up - it won't eject.
I think the lacquer finish is just a little sticky - Perhaps with a DI AR, or a mini14.
REGARDLESS - try a couple boxes before you waste good money on ammo you can't use!
Ammo arrived late yesterday afternoon so I did not have a bunch of time. Popped off 60 rounds through my new M4 without a hitch. I have never had a problem with Tula in any of my firearms.Thanks LG for good price and service!
good service, decent ammo for plinking
It does burn hot, so if you have a weapon that you really cherish, this ammo is not for you. I used it in my mini 14, that, I bought back in 1978. It worked just fine. The steel casings make it easy to use a magnet to clean up the ground when done shooting. I would buy more if it was a touch less$. If it goes on sale for 15 cents a round I would buy more, lots more. At 20 cents a round it is a good plinking round. BUT 5 rounds is a dollar, so I am holding off .223 and shooting .22LR for now. Lucky Gunner ships fast and they seem to be good people to do business with. The website is organized and easy to navigate. I will buy from Lucky Gunner in the future, most likely 9mm ammo, if I buy a 9mm weapon.
Good at best for AR's
I originally bought this for a gunfighting class. Great value, but it ends there. This is not ammo you want to run in an gas impingement AR platform because it is coated and when it gets hot it will cause the cartridge to get stuck to the chamber. If your using to for plinking, it's OK. As long as you getting sighted in or target practice, etc. But to use it for drills of 100 rounds or more it will not work. It gave me a good opportunity to practice my failure drills. But it also took me off the range twice to extract stuck cases.
Siezed in chamber, DPMS 5.56 Barrel
Bought 1000 rounds for my Slide Fire AR15 with DPMS 5.56 barrel. It only cycled a few rounds through until one was stuck in the chamber and would not extract. Had to hammer back the bolt to get the round out. Tried again and it cycled through a hundred rounds until this happened again. Will not buy this ammo again for my AR15.
Great value...dirty ammo
I have a entirely different opinion of this ammo. Great value...shoots great...accurate...but, very dirty. After about 100 rounds...will not feed....jams. Have to clean my AR-15 constantly. I have purchased two thousand rounds. But, even with this problem...I will still purchase because of value. Maybe my Nato spec carbine causes this. Lucky Gunner does have great customer service and I definetly recommend them.
223 Rem - 55 gr FMJ - Tula - 1000 Rounds
I was a little leary about Russian ammo but this stuff shoots great! Shot about 200 rounds without incident and look forward to shooting up some more!
The value is the best I've seen on this caliber anywhere! Being a divorced Cop value is everything!
DON'T WORRY - BE HAPPY! GO SHOOT!
