Wolf seems to work fine.
Tula did not.
For practice use whatever your gun will handle. An occasional and unexpected malfunction is very, very helpful when practicing.
Some of the best stuff I ever shot was Guatemalan surplus made on Olin machines
The Hornady 147gr XTP is not a +P round, it’s as light as a 115gr and flies just the same at short range. Have not tested it at longer range but I’m sure it will drop rapidly beyond 50 feet because the muzzle velocity is much slower than the 115 gr. It’s very easy on the hand however.
That was the first self defense load I tried, it’s got some smack to it like 357SIG.
Good to hear that the recoil is low.
I would like to see some competition with the AR10s to drop the prices
Really? I just bought a couple boxes for my M1A............ am I skrewed?
Mussel flash? Sounds like a dirty round.
I dont know.
All I know is I had serious problems with Tula .223
FTE,cases stuck in the chamber, blown primer pockets..
I'm guessing Colt is going to be one of the new manufacturers with a 7.62 AR - with their CM901 rifle.
If I remember correctly, the Army has decided to not make any major changes to their main battle rifle for the foreseeable future.
Can anyone direct me to a good scope for my M1A (calibrated for 7.62 NATO) that is not priced out of this world. I currently have a cheap Bushnell sitting on her to take up space, but I’d like a scope with BDC that isn’t priced as high as the rifle.
Wolf is dirty.
That Guatemalan stuff is clean it shoots better than Radway Green.
AR15s have come way down!
I saw a bushmaster the other month for $599 dealers price.
That puts it about $650 to you
Do a google image search for tula ammo failure.
You might be surprised...
It's a shame. Cheap 7.62 is a good thing to plink with at the range. I also bought some Monarch 145gr 7.62 ammo for the same purpose. I like to keep the good Winchester stuff for the real thing.
You may want to look at Prvi Partizan as a good cheap alternative cartridge.
I would be very careful with Tula ammo. Here’s one example:
