I shoot Tula all the time, no problems at all.

I have had issues with tula in the past. It was limited to the magazine feeding the rounds up. I stopped using it because I can get brass cased ammo much cheaper than tula now.

Yes I have shot it out of my 34. No problems and it is pretty accurate too!

snake for some reason its noticebly harder to load even just one round less with the steel than the brass. weird to me it must be the friction or something of the steel, never happened with blazer steel tho. after this box of tula im sticking with brass.

That was the problem for me too. Rounds hanging up inside of the magazine. It didn't do it every time but with me, once something fails and it wasn't user error, it goes the way of the great white buffalo.

The only issue I can recall with Tulammo in my G23G4 has been failure to feeds, even with a polished feed ramp.

Ran into it 4 times in the same box.
Switched to another box of Tulammo, shot fine.

Haven't had issues since. It's not my first choice, but it's cheap.

just as good as any, you will see LOTS of negative steel case sayers even tho they never shot 1 rd of it. It is no dirtier then name brand ammo. The steel case is really soft steel and will not harm your extractor any worse than the hi-class brass. Do not use lacquered coated because you will have problems with shells fte, use phosphate coated and you should have no problems and if you do have problems your pistol is the problem. The target below was shot at 50yds two handed rest with my 2000$ Baer. If all the negative you hear is true I wouldn't use this pistol to fire cheap russian ammo, as you can see it is very accurate as well. The 3 or so flyers are the first 3 shots and are within 2" of the center shots.

It shoots fine out of my 23. When I went to the range one of the employees was advising I don't shoot it but hey no issues. Alot of lgs employees don't really no ****, that or they are just very opinionated.

I was shooting a competition last weekend and ended up not having enough of my brass-cased ammo. I always carry a 9 buck box of Tulammo as a spare (or to give to somone else who runs out). I shot about 30 rounds out of the box. I had one light primer strike or the primer didn't ignite.

The gun functioned with the ammo with no problems besides that one round. I haven't tried to fire that one round again (but I still have it....somewhere.... :))

I also forgot to mention that the Tula ammo was the same grain as the wwb I was shooting. Yet the whole 50 rounds of the Tula felt like the grain was 135 instead of 180. Is that considered light primers? Sorry for the nub question i just never experienced that before. (felt like I was shooting those low recoil hydra shocks)

I picked up some recently. I love the fact that I can get 1000 rounds for $200+tax. Haven't shot any recently, but in the past I haven't had any issues with it. Out of Glocks or Taurus pistols.

great stuff for the price, I am slowly becoming a Tula convert. Very clean for being so cheap.

I love Tula,it's cleaner than Winchester white box. Id shoot it more but our pistol range requires us to buy there ammo,so I sneak in a few rounds at the rifle range. But I recommend Tula to anyone who want to shoot and train cheaply. Or my .45 it's 15$ for 50 rounds. So I buy in bulk.

I have been using the WWB in my Gen 4 G21 for the last few months since the price was so Good at Wally World and can say I have had ZERO issues with any of it and it really doesn't seem all that dirty. They may have tidied it up or something??

I'm not sure. Haven't used it since way back when I first got my Gen 2 G17. The thing had so many issues when I got that gun, as the previous owner had used and abused it sooo bad. So it might have been the pistol, but I haven't touched it since.

and 9.89 for 50 rnds is amazing!!!!!

Tula is my go-to ammo.
Buy it in the 900rd spams and stack it deep.
It always gets the job done for range plinking.
