    Does anyone have any experience with this stuff?

    I bought some at my local WM for $19.XX per fitty of .45ACP. I just shot 100 rounds of Federal .45ACP was covered in unburnt powder up to my elbows, which was surprising since it came out of a 5" 1911. Stuff was filthy.

    I got some from Wally World in .223
    Seems to run just fine, just like their steal cased stuff but brass.

    I picked some up in 9mm after a buddy of mine tried it out. Seemed to work just fine in his xdm. It's supposed to be rebranded fiocchi.

    OK well don't tell anyone else it runs fine then. Let them see the Tula name and buy filthy federal instead.

    I don't know about that stuff but i have used Tula .223 with the steel case. It worked fine. Matter of fact, I just bought 200 rounds off of Target sports USA 2 days ago for 6.99 a box of 20! I couldn't believe I found it for that cheap. It sold out in less than an hour.

    I know this thread is sort of old but I wanted to get in here with some feedback on this stuff. I've now shot Tula BrassMAX in both .45 ACP and 9mm and it ran great in both calibers in a full-size 1911 platform as well as both a M&P 9c and M&P 9 Pro. The rounds are loaded pretty hot though. Noticeably hotter when loaded into the same mag as Freedom Munitions 115gr FMJ RN reloads.

    The advertised velocity for 9mm 115 gr BrassMAX is 1150fps but I wouldn't be surprised if it's more than that.

    Still runs great and if I see it I buy it but try not to shoot it in competitions.

    Seemed pretty dirty when I shot about 200rds of it in my Glock 19.

    Why not to shoot in competitions? More muzzle flip than with milder loads?

    You hit the proverbial nail on the head.
