Wolf or Tula ( Tulammo )?
I see from sites like "lucky gunner" and "ammo seek" that you can get these steel cased, bimetallic bullet, imported brands of ammo for only $.20 per round-- basically $200 for a case of 1000.
It seems all American- branded ammo is over $.30 around even if it is also steel cased. Brass cased military surplus ammo is also over $.30 a round, and it's all 55 or 62 grain.
With Wolf and Tula, I can get 75 grain open tip (match-style) bullet loads for only a few pennies more --maybe $.22 per round.
If the accuracy of the 75 grain stuff is good enough out of my 1:9 twist barrel, I would prefer it over the 55 grain loads, because I would occasionally shoot it out to 600 yards.
So, do any of y'all have experience with Wolf and Tula ammo shooting them from the same gun, from the same shooting bench, at the same range, under the same atmospheric conditions, and comparing the group sizes?
Have any of you tested Wolf or Tula 223 ammo with those extra heavy bullets like 77 grains in weight?
How did they compare accuracy wise to the other loads? And what distances did you shoot them from?
P.S. I don't need or expect very tight groups with any of this ammo. 2.5 minute-of-angle would be OK with me. I've used foreign military surplus ammo in other calibers that wouldn't do any better than 3 MOA. If I could keep all my shots in a 7" or 8" inch group at 300 yards I think that would be fun and satisfying.
