brass maxx

I was told by a friend that I couldn't use TulAmmo brass maxx ammo 9mm brass at the gun range because it was not a name brand. Need expert opinions on this please.

A phone call to the range is in order.

At a guess, it is an indoor range and their concern isn't that it isn't a name brand, but rather that it may have steel in its projectiles. Tulammo is a Russian brand and Russian ammo has a reputation that indoor ranges don't particularly like.

Hello,

Exactly correct. For years, my local range wouldn't allow any com bloc steel core ammunition because it was wearing away the steel plate back stop and one day some customer actually was putting holes through the plate with steel cored early Wolf ammo.

BTW, you can actually get "blow back" from worn steel back stops and I have managed to get "hit" unexpectedly from bullets coming back from the back stop. (Now, I really detest indoor shooting ranges....).

If you have doubts, do the magnet test on the bullets to see if they are steel cored or not...

Best,

Chris

Thanks Chris. I used a very powerful magnet on the ammo and got nothing. Seems to me it's ok

Wolf Gold rifle ammo is mostly made by PPU (Prvi Patizan.) It's my favorite to handload; the brass is excellent but not nearly as expensive as Norma or Lapua.

I would hazard a guess that the handgun fodder you have was made by PPU as well. I don't know this for a fact, but it's certainly possible.

Call the range, tell them you have NON-magnetic ammo, and ask 'em if it would be OK.

The Russians did use steel cores but they'd also use copper-washed steel jackets with lead cores. Either will tear up a backstop.

TulAmmo BrassMaxx 9mm 115gr FMJ

Today while shopping at Wally World I stumbled over into Sporting Goods looking for .22LR ammo. None of course, but they did have 4 boxes of this TulAmmo I've never heard of. The case is brass, and the bullet is copper coated. Kind of reminded me of Sellier & Bellot ammo. The box says, Made in Italy? I was originally thinking this was Russian until I saw that. I imagine it's contracted out to the Italian's? It would be neat if it was Fiocchi since I have always liked this brand. I bought 2 boxes @ $13.95ea. Anyone here ever shoot this same ammo? Thanks.

9MM Luger
115 Grain FMJ
Brass Case Non Corrosive Boxer Primer
Made in Italy

Late editing: 50rd box & non-magnetic bullet.
