  • I haven't had a problem with these feeding, but you can sometimes feel a bit of a snag that you just don't get with slicker brass rounds (by the way, nickel coated casings feed and eject even smoother than brass)

      These bullets should seriously be labeled “for range use only.” I can find TulAmmo 9mm Luger bullets around here for around $9 for a box of 50 — that’s cheap for even 9mm shells. Sadly, there is a reason these bullets are so expensive — they’re hit and miss when it comes to reliability.

      Truthfully, you shouldn’t expect too much out of a box of what may be the least expensive 9mm Luger rounds on the planet, but it is important to point out that TulAmmo shouldn’t be on the top of your list when looking for

      self defense rounds. It’s one thing to clear a bullet that doesn’t fire at the shooting range and completely another to clear one with an assailant bearing down on you. The last thing you need in a self defense bullet it one that may or may not work. And I’m not exaggerating — I only had one misfire at the range in my last box of TulAmmo and felt lucky. That is a sad commentary on the company’s quality control (or lack thereof).

      So, what do you get with a TulAmmo bullet? A conventional, 115-grain full metal jacket round in a steel casing. No, these aren’t hollow points — just plain old “range rounds” that are well suited for practicing with, but little else. As for the steel casing, those have a reputation for leaving your gun quite dirty after going through a box of them and they are also reputed to feed and eject roughly. I’m not sure about how dirty these are as I tend to clean my pistol after firing several rounds through it and the barrel usually has a fair amount of residue regardless of what kind of bullets ...

      I use. I haven’t had a problem with these feeding, but you can sometimes feel a bit of a snag that you just don’t get with “slicker” brass rounds (by the way, nickel coated casings feed and eject even smoother than brass).

      As for the specs, these travel at 1,150 feet-per-second and hit with 295 foot-pounds of energy at 10 yards. In other words, these are pretty “blah” in terms of ballistics — not too bad and not too great. Again, the specs are fine for range rounds.

      At this point, the verdict on these things should be

      obvious. These are great for the range provided that your gun will cycle through them OK (some people report trouble with the steel casings, but I haven’t had a problem). These are cheap and work most of the time. If you are one of those types who uses full metal jacket bullets for self defense rather than hollow points, you’ll want to keep shopping. Get something more reliable than TulAmmo for self defense, but feel free to use these for practice — at less than 20-cents per round, these are great rounds for use don at the range.
