Tulammo

Ok never shot anything from out side the USA. Russia made 223's. Cheap ammo, I am expecting cheap results? Right?

Re: Tulammo

Nothing spectacular. Some rifles will function fine with the ammo, some will not. I've shot a few thousand rounds of Wolf steel cased ammo through my AR and it ran just fine. I would think Tula would be along the same line.

Re: Tulammo

A lot of people shoot it and love it. Same with Wolf. I personally don't care for steel cased ammo but that's just me.
Some people will argue that there are a bajillion ak-47's In the world that are perfectly happy eating nothing but steel cased ammo and their right.
I don't care. I don't put steel in my chamber.

The Second Ammendment...
Its kind of a big deal.

Re: Tulammo

Good ammo for an AK will shoot fine out of an AR just don't shoot to rapidly. The cases are coated with a laquer and because an AR 15 is a direct impingment system the chamber heats up and the laquer can act like a glue. We had to use a brass rod and a hammer to beat the case out of the chamber. That was 1 out of 200 or so rounds and only after we started shooting a lot more quickly. So I would say for just minor plinking your perfectly okay, but no go for much more than that with an AR. Obviously if you had a piston driven AR they would be perfectly okay.

If an inline is just like a flintlock why don't you get a flintlock so you can hunt more seasons?

Re: Tulammo

Nothing melts off of a lacquer coated case. People have posted that they've taken a propane torch to a spent case and can't get the coating to come off.

What happens is the steel cases do not seal as well as a brass case in the chamber. Because they do not seal well, you can get carbon build up which may cause a case to get stuck. The remedy is to scrub the chamber and continue shooting.

This is a brass case that became stuck after firing steel cased ammo. The stuff on the case is carbon build up, not lacquer.

Re: Tulammo

Geez, glad I only bought two 20 round boxes! Thanks for the heads up! I was going to try some Wolf stuff too, but think Ill opt for some of the Herters from Cabelas as long as its brass.

Re: Tulammo

Wolf, Tulammo, Golden bear, Brown bear, etc... Besides being steel cased also have steel in their projectiles. We have taken them apart and both the core and the brass stick to a magnet.
