Re: Tula Ammo: A non-scientific report
I've shot the 9mm, .40 and 7.62x39 Tulammo. The x39 works perfectly in my Saiga (commie ammo for commie guns, they say) that I buy a box or two every time I'm in Walmart. The .40 worked fine in my SW40VE, but that thing would eat anything I threw in it. Performance seemed to be right along with what I usually shoot in the .40, about the same power as the PMC that I shoot and a tad under the Blazer brass cased stuff.
Now the 9mm, on the other hand...while it was just as dirty as any other commercial ammo I've shot, I was not happy at all with the power on it. In my P95, it often seemed as if it barely cycled the slide, at one point I even felt a pause as it chambered a round and actually checked visually to make sure the slide was all the way forward. I won't buy anymore of it in 9mm, especially since I can buy the 100 round pack of Federal at Walmart for the same price.
