Tula Cartridge Works is a Russian company that has been producing weapons and ammunition for over 300 years, and was founded by Tsar Peter I. Tula produces steel cased ammunition which was chosen over brass cased ammo to save money; several Russian companies follow the same plan. Tula ammo is an example of some of the best and cheapest steel cased ammunition.
Note: this ammo’s steel case will require a relatively clean firearm to avoid some of the sticking and case expansion that is common with steel casings, especially when shot out of a revolver. Clearly, being a revolver based cartridge, these .38 special rounds will need a clean gun and a small amount of attention to detail as you shoot. They aren’t perfect, but when you compare them to the much higher prices of the competitors for the same load, they make a sense for training.
This ammo is steel cased, Boxer primed, non-corrosive and non-reloadable.
