Tulammo 9mm

Postby arizonaopa » Sun Oct 13, 2013 12:43 pm

Has anyone else come across 9mm ammo from Tulammo. I found a 100 rd can at Walmart. The can says that it is brass not steel as Tulammo usually has. I will be taking it out to the range this week to try it out, but wonder if anyone else has used it. BTW, Walmart charged $13 for the can.

Saw some at my local Wal~Mart a couple of weeks ago. Did not look at the price as most I have seen was steel cased and the range I go to want brass only. Did also see some PSX 124Gr there also. Don't remember the price. May pick some up when I start to carry it.

I have found and used tulammo brassmax it comes in 50 round packages (for me) of brass cased 9mm with fmj brass coated bullet the box said made in italy (it reminded me of fionchi) The stuff shot great in my CPX 2 real good stuff.

Just on the offchance anyone knows has anyone had problems with blazer in their cpx? I've been shooting blazer recently and getting failures to extract.

Thanks for the input I appreciate it. Maybe it was because it was very new ammo I bought a blazer 350 pack 2 days ago. But I gotta check the extractor more closely and see if it is chipped but from the outside it looks pretty intact.

Check your Recoil Rod too. If it's chewed, rather than nice and smooth, that can cause a whole range of issues because it can prevent the Slide from moving freely as it needs to.

The BrassMaxx is made by Fiocchi in Italy. Fiocchi has a plant here in Missouri (Ozark). It would be nice if their pistol ammo was easily available here as well. They always have lower prices on their merchandise too.

I bought my first can of 9mm Tula-Ammo at Walmart and just hoped it worked. It actually was the only 9MM range ammo I could find. Academy seems to be loading up on the self defense ammo in the smaller 20 packs that cost the same or a lot more but no range ammo. I was pleasantly surprised at the ammo. My son and I put about 75 rounds through the CPX2 with no problems. I did notice that if I racked the first round in too fast it would hang up a little but I backed off just a bit and it went in just find. No FTF or FTE at all. I went back and bought two more cans. So far, I'm a believer!

Is that the BrassMAXX that you used / bought more of?

I've used the standard steel case Tulammo with no issues in my 2nd Gen CPX. I have a 100 round "can" of their BrassMAXX but haven't shot any of it yet.

I've bought 600 rounds of the Brassmax and haven't shot the first one yet.
It sure looks nice though, way better than say Federal or Winchester white box.
I've also put at least 250 rounds of the super cheap Tullammo steel case through my cpx2.
No problems other than it's just really dirty ammo.
I may get a hiccup of some kind after fifty or more rounds but usually not.
The brassmax I bought said manufactured in Bosnia or Hersogovina.

I've heard the Tula BrassMAXX ammo is not manufactured quite to specs. This was confirmed when wifey tried to shoot some through her Kahr CW9...she had several FTEs and one or two FTFs. My CPX had no problems with it, but I think I shot 10 rounds of it, at the most.

In my opinion, it's all trial and error. Find what works best for your weapons AND what fits within your shooting budget. Then, stick with it as long as you can find it. Haters are gonna hate, no matter what you shoot, right?

I put 100 rounds of the Tullammo Brassmax through My Zastava ez9 today.
One bad primer that fired on the second trigger pull.
One failure to fully extract the fired case that jammed against the next round in the magazine.
Not sure if that was me the gun or the ammo.

In what way? I've looked at it compared to Federal and WWB ammo and don't see any obvious difference to the eye. Without a micrometer I can't tell the measurements. What specification have you heard it's not within?

That seems to be really good advice for any gun. I would add once you find the ammo that works well for you, especially for defense, stock up a bit. 8)

parkerd wrote:I put a micrometer on the Tula a while back - did 10 random cartridges. All in spec with other ammo at for width. But shorter that rem or win in length, but all ten the same.

Shorter, but were they short enough to be out of tolerance?

SAAMI calls for the Overall Length to be from 1.0" to 1.169" (http://www.saami.org/PubResources/CC_Drawings/Pistol/9mm%20Luger%20-%209mm%20Luger%20+P.pdf).

What did your rounds measure?

parkerd wrote:I didn't write it down, and don't have any BrassMax left right now. But measured the Win - 1.163. Am remembering it was only a little bit., maybe 1.150? I think still in spec. When I get some I will measure. But thinking about it, I think the can stuff is made in a different place than box stuff. I saw some in Walmart the other day. I'll stop there and buy a box today if they still have it. I think it is only about $14.

Yes, their ammo is made in various plants in various countries / cities. Can / box and different calibers are labeled as made in different places.

I just shot a box of 380 Tula Brass Max through my Bersa Firestorm. This was the first time I had shot this particular Bersa so I don't know if I have a gun/mag issue or if it's the ammo. But I did have 5-6 FTF. The ammo was dirtier than most of the ammo I normally use, but it was fairly accurate. Still a good deal for 380acp at $14.99 a box.
