What you may have not known is that they've actually been around since 1880, and that they are currently one of the largest ammo manufacturers in the world. I was recently able to test some Tula .45 ACP ammo. This was their steel case, 230 grain, full metal jacket load. Something that sets Tula apart from other manufactures is their use of bi-metal jackets. This means they use a combination of both steel and copper. Now, many may wonder if steel in the case or bullet may harm their firearm. Put simply, this combination of metal is soft enough to use any serviceable firearm, and an added benefit is that the jacket holds it's shape very well. Unlike some Eastern European ammunition that you may have encountered in the past, this is non-corrosive and boxer primed. The steel case is not as workable as brass and is not intended to be reloaded. If you're not a reloader, this really doesn't matter to you. And you can shoot more by buying steel at a lower price than brass. I tested this ammunition in two different 1911s. When it comes to .45 ACP, if it works in the 1911, it will probably work in anything. And I didn't have any problems with this Tula ammo. In fact, it shot great. It was very accurate at 10 yards from the stand. It has the same velocity and energy as 230 grain .45 ACP hollow points, so you can practice or train effectively with this ammo. It would also be great for just having fun at the range. Tula's ammunition is not as clean burning as other ammunition I've tried in the past, but this had no effect on reliability in either pistol. I think this TulAmmo .45 ACP ammo is a great deal, and I wouldn't disregard it just because of the steel case.
