As you might imagine, this 7.62x39mm Russian ammunition from Tula Cartridge Works is ideal for use in firearms of Russian origin such as the AK and SKS. What’s more, it’s incredibly affordable and uses non-corrosive primers. The 122 grain bullet, cased in a bimetal jacket, achieves a muzzle velocity of 2,396 feet per second. Each round uses Berdan primers with non-reloadable steel cases; the cases are coated in a special non-toxic polymer that encourages smooth feeding and ejection.
The Tula Cartridge Works is a Russian ammunition plant based in Tula, south of Moscow. It exports TulAmmo brand cartridges to over 20 countries around the world and serves as the OEM manufacturer for several other import brands. Tula ammo has gained immense popularity for range shooting in the United States, with over half a billion imported annually. This enormous figure is a testament to the reasonable price and quality of the company’s target loads.
