TulAmmo BrassMaxx range report

I had a range session figured into my plans for tomorrow. Usually pretty easy for me to manage since I live in the country. This morning I did my usual spin thru sporting goods at wallyworld and they had 3 boxes of Winchester 40 S&W 165 gr FMJ and about 7 boxes of BrassMaxx 170 gr FMJ. Basically the same price. When I saw that the Brass Maxx was Tula I said give me the three Winchesters. The guy at the desk told me that the brassmax was actually made in Italy and had a pretty good rep so I decided to try one box. I have only bought one box of Tula handgun (380 steel case)before and it would not cycle thru anything I own but I figured I'd give it a try.
Got done with my have to stuff here a little early this afternoon and decided to do a mini-session. 20 rds of the Tulaand twenty rounds of the Winchester at7 yards out of my relatively new P226 rapid fire. Tula cycled and fired fine with the exception of one partial failure to load. Winchester was flawless. This will be my first attempt at loading a pic so I hope I can pull it off. I am no marksman but the left target is the Winchester. Hmmmm2013-07-20 18.05.21.jpg

I saw the BrassMaxx at Wally on Friday too but was afraid to purchase it. I had the same issue with the Tula .380 steel that wouldn't cycle. Maybe I'll try it now.

Please keep us informed. I'm esp interested in the .45 as I have 2 1911's. I'm gonna shoot out the other 30 rds tomorrow when I am fresh, but my first impression is that it sure ain't top of the line esp in the accuracy department.. However I did not have any flyers either so it well could have been me. I'm glad to see another entry into the ammo scene if for no other reason than increasing availability for all of us.

I'm on the road, and about 900 miles from home. I usually on travel with a 9mm and a .22. I can find an indoor range in any major city, and lots of small ones too.

When I get back home in September, I'll run a couple of boxes through my Ruger 1911.

Had 100 rounds of Tul in 9mm. One box was perfect and the other had about 13-15 rounds that needed to be hit twice. All worked on the second hit but frustrating.
Be safe, Frank.

Yikes. That's an unsafe condition.

A few weeks ago, I too picked up 3-boxes of TulAmmo, 9mm, Brass Maxx, from Wally World. I ran one box of 50 through my P226. No problems at all.

I should have added that the lot date for the ammo was 2004. I have no way of knowing how it was stored and I believe it was traded in with a gun during the panic shortage, and I was the lucky guy that bought it.

Tried it once on my HK USP compact 9mm and had 2 FTF out of 100 rds and I'm not gonna use that ammo again.

update

Finished up the Tula this morning in a more extended range session along with more of the Winchester FMJ and some Winchester HP's that I purchased last month. No problems with function, but the stuff is horribly inaccurate. I am a poor enough shooter as it is without getting absolutely no help from my ammo. I won't be buying any more esp since I can get the much more consistent Winchester for virtually the same price.

Can't say that I agree this is an unsafe condition. As long as you follow the four rules, it is fine. If you are referring to a potential hang fire, with modern primers, they are almost non-existent. Worst case, eject the unfired round from the gun, let it fall on the ground and go on. Should the round fire in the open, not much more dangerous than a firecracker. May spit some brass, but nothing with enough force to penetrate clothing. And provided you have proper eye pro, you shouldn't be in any danger. Or, in the case of a gun with double strike capability, pull the trigger again. Tula primers are some of the hardest available, they are more likely to not fire than most other brands, especially if the striker/firing pin is hitting lightly.

If nothing else is available and you want to shoot, you sometimes have to make choices you may not like. Decisions, decisions. It's great to live in a free country, I just hope we keep ALL of our freedoms!
