Nothing wrong with Tula ammo. Non corrosive on the new production stuff. My AR prefers it to the brass monarch that Academy sells. I picked up 600 rounds of it for my AK in boxes last week as my local academy was out of the spam cans.

I don't think so. I bought 1000 rounds when I bought the ak. 50 individual boxes of 20 rounds. I need to buy another brand to make sure it isn't the gun, but it is honestly at least every 20 rounds one hangs up (I put ftf earlier and that probably wasbt the right term).

Fte, fail to eject? Those cases of ammo can be coated in Cosmo. Did you clean the shells? Also, it could be that the shell swells and gets hung up due to age. I had this happen before. The case got stuck and the extractor tore the lip on the case.
