Great ammo, great price as I do not reload, delivered promptly.
Good performing ammo at a great price with one caveat.
I purchased 1000 rounds of this ammo and they ran through my Beretta 92FS perfectly. Unfortunately our club range officer approached me and asked what kind of ammo I was using. I showed him the cartridge and the box. He inform me that large sparks were coming off the steel backstop, which indicated the ammo was steel jacket or steel core and those are not allowed at the range. . We looked at the box and could not find any evidence of that.I went back to shooting copper clad.When I got home I pulled a bullet out of a case. Sure enough it was strongly attracted to a magnet. I sectioned the bullet and found a relatively hard silver colored jacket and a soft silver core. Since the only common metals that are ferromagnetic are Iron,Cobalt & Nickel I am hard pressed to understand what these bullets of.
I'm not a reloader so this ammo is perfect for me

Q: What is the silver coatings on these bullets? I haven't bought tula ammo for about a year and I bought 500 rounds of the 9 mm. None of the ammo has copper jacketing. All are silver? covering. Is this for hunting werewolves??? Is it as safe as copper jacketing?

A: Hello! The Tula ammunition is being loaded with a bi-metal jacketed projectile that uses zinc instead of copper. The zinc maintains the soft features that copper does but comes at a lower raw material cost. As a result, the manufacturers are able to keep prices down even though copper prices are still rising. The zinc is just as safe as copper due to the soft nature of zinc as a metal.
