Cabelas is running a free shipping promo: 2XSHIP that does not include oversized shipping. At $214.99 + $8, $222.99 is probably the cheapest it'll get. Promo expires March 9th.

Promo code: SGOD expires March 25th.

You can have this deal as low as $212.24 shipped if you have a discover rewards card and link through the discover website under retailers.

Additionally, you can use BING.COM to search "Tula .223" under shopping for an additional 4% bing cashback that can be linked back into your paypal account. This will put the total around $215 shipped.

Yes, I know this is crap and it probably shoots dirty, but if you don't mind cleaning the savings up, then it's well worth it. Go order some cases of this crap and have fun plinkin! ;)

As a side note, ammoman sells cases for $289 shipped and you don't get 2 ammo boxes.

I haven't shot it, but I'm fairly sure it's the same stuff as Wolf, since Wolf is also manufactured at the Tula Arsenal. There have been threads ad infinitum here on Wolf, still a topic of much debate.

Tula is owned by wolf and manufactured out of the same plant.

Shipping is free until March 9th, but I also have another code that's good til March 25th. It seems as if Cabelas always has a shipping deal going on every other month, so it doesn't matter.

The ammo is regular price, but just like everything else, can go up at anytime.

Is it "magnetic"?

ive shot about 1k of this, i like the fact it comes in battle packs, so no worries about damp, ive had maybe 2 FTF's out of that 1k, all shot out of a brand new stag upper & calguns lower.

ive also shot a ton of TULA in .45, zero problems, it only seems dirtier since you get more blowback into the breech due to the steel not expanding.

I had one guy at my range shooting some he had purchased, he had like 20 FTF's out of 200, we swapped 40 rounds and he had 1 FTF out of my two box's and i had 1 out of his..

bad batch? weak firing pin? who knows.

nothing wrong with shooting laquered ammo, as long as you dont shoot brass after you shoot steel.

the brass expands and carbon welds it, if you do plan on shooting brass right after shooting a bunch of this, then boresnake it a couple of times and wipe out the breech with a rag before doing it.

yup. Rosmar1969 has them in 9mm, good stuff for plinking.

Is it as dirty as the .45 and 9mm ammo they make? I have seen first hand 9mm fouling in a 9mm AR that my friend was running this ammo through. Just wanted to know ;) Not bad, hopefully more ammo will come down in price :D

I've shot this stuff out of my 45 and it is dirty, but shoots well enough.

bump because the two boxes that come with the deal are way cooler than the ammo.

Shipping code was 2xship but it ended on the 9th.

yup. Rosmar1969 has them in 9mm, good stuff for plinking.

problem is that many indoor ranges won't allow it to be shot. no steel. heck, my local range has a no steel policy and a specific NO Wolf policy.
