I’ve received a few questions lately about TulAmmo — inexpensive, Berdan-primed, non-corrosive rounds made in the Russian arsenal city of Tula.
Someone must be having a pretty good sale.
I’ve only shot a half-case or so of 7.62x39mm TulAmmo through my AKs. There were no malfunctions, but that’s hardly enough for a test, much less an endorsement.
Truth be known, for AKs I prefer Wolf Military Classic, which is still manufactured to Red Army standards. With our humidity, a little bit of lacquer around the primer is not a bad thing.
The only problem I’ve heard about TulAmmo involves the polymer that is sprayed on to the steel cases. Sometimes, if the rounds sit too long, they’ll begin to corrode and the polymer will flake off, resulting in FTEs.
What experience have you had with TulAmmo?
Please let me know, especially if you’ve tried their handgun rounds.
