    Picked up three boxes (three different times) of the New Tula Brass Maxx .223 55grn ammo. 50 rounds per box for less then $17 (at Wall-E-World). No one I had talked to had fired any so I took the plunge and fired a few hundred rounds through my Daniel Defense 1/7 twist shorty upper (lower was an 80% I built last year).

    Results: No misfires, No failures to feed and No failure to extract. Cycled perfectly. Not very dirty, about average with Lake City and Winchester.

    20 rounds out of 20 rounds in the 10 ring at 75 yards . Next was 20 rounds at 150 yards with only 3 dropped out of the 10 ring (2 in the 9, and 1 in the 6) using a sand bag prone position with iron sights.

    Over all impression is very high. Not quit up to XM193 but for the price it's one hell of a deal.

    Please let us know if you fire any as well.

    Just curious. I know it's supposed to be "brass", but did you happen to run a magnet over any of it?

    SilverCity, Yep, used the magnet on both case and bullet. Neither are magnetic. Also, Says on the box that it's made in Italy.

    The Tula Cartridge Works is the leading enterprise of ammunition industry in Russia. The plant specialises in output of ammunition for light small-arms weapons and is the largest in the country supplier of ammunition to domestic and foreign markets.

    The history of the plant dates back to the end of the 19th century when in 1880 the emperor Alexander II approved the regulations on establishment of ammunition production in Tula.

    At present the plant produces ammunition for the army, police as well as for the civil market, including such popular all over the world calibres as 5,45x18 PSM; .380 ACP; 9 mm Makarov; 9 mm Luger; 40 S&W; .45 AUTO; 5,45x39 Kalashnikov; 7,62x39 Kalashnikov; 5,56x45; 7,62x51.

    Among the latest developments of the enterprise a special place is occupied by ammunition which is used by law enforcement bodies in anti-terrorist struggle.

    The state company “ROSOBORONEXPORT” exports the Tula-produced ammunition to dozens of countries throughout the world.

    I have purchased some of the Tula Brass max 9mm. It was comparable to Remington 9mm previously used.
