Cheap Russian ammo in giant sardine cans at Academy...



Is this stuff any good? I think it's made by Tulo?

It is indeed Tullo. Except you pay more per round for the cheap tuna can they come in. I don't shoot them out of my AR but it's up to you. Much better ammo out there for not much more.

I buy stuff like that for my AK and it works great for that, but I only use brass cased ammo for my AR and handguns.

It's probably corrosive and I wouldn't run it in an AR. Russian ammo for Russian guns

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.

That would be my main concern.

Clean the ever living shite outta your gun if you use it.

My AK doesn't shoot that trash worth a shite. 1 out of every 15 shots is a ftf.

Were you shooting old surplus ammo? May have just been a bad batch of primers

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.
