Did this video help you?

Padong Ly: 400rds through my fnx 9 no problem at all. Should be the same for rifles too.

oafaloaf: stuff worked great on my factory greased s&w m&p-15 sport. The way i figure it is if the extractor wears out i will replace it. Only jam was operator error, I thought this stuff was copper jacketed steel case lead core? can anyone confirm this?

captainzanzey: My windham ar eats this stuff up, my gun was shooting high, just need to get better sights, shoots well, shot over 200 rnds of it today and had no problems of any kind

JediGTI: I shot it for the first time today and got a jam after about 60rds. 

bigchrisdom24: I'm going to get herters again it actually says tulammo on the bottom of the bullets but I need another dry box and it's 120$ for 500

brianminkc: Usually this ammo works fine. It does increase wear on your barrel and extractor by about 20%. The bullet has a very thin copper jacket and their is steel underneath ..... so it will wear your barrel if you shoot thousands of rounds. It is pretty wicked stuff though... it will penetrate better than any other .223 round I am aware of.

Drew McMahon: The only problems I have with Herters are that they jam in my barrel after firing. I keep my weapons clean, maybe too clean because this stuff needs to shoot through a dripping wet with lube rifle. Dont get me wrong, for half the price of brass I will shoot this at paper anyday, I just know I have to have plenty of Lube and a cleaning rod every time to get rounds out.

iluvmym4: I guess buy a box try it out & if your gun won't cycle the stuff don't get more-but it wouldn't cost an arm & a leg for one box! That's my take.

claddagh1000: same as Tula. I had no issues after 300rds in my Sport.

LTGOneill: I've shot a few thousand of tula, several thousand more brown and silver bear; overall, brown and silver work best for me, but tula rarely fails. Using, 16", 14.5", 11.5" barrels, both carbine and mid-length, both DI and pistons... What I've noticed is the tula made rounds have slightly week powder charge, if herter's is just rebranded tula, it should be fine. If someone's AR doesn't reliably eat steel case, it's the AR not the ammo. still recommend silverbear, but eveyone is out of stock

chinesetype53: been shooting the stuff for years .

sniperbait171: got this stuff in 308 my ptr91 loves it with 3in groups at a 100yrds not the best but for 10$ a box cant beat it. i get 1.5in groups with fiocchi but thats 18$ a box

Gordon King: This ammo is crap shot 60 rounds out of my AR 15 and it jamed in cyclinder. It swelled when shot. thought ok one bad shell then i shot it out of my M14 and same thing happened no more Herters ammo for me.

bigchrisdom24: Yeah I just don't want to pay a ton to shoot my guns I'm about to order 7.62x39 so I can shoot my AK cheap

bigchrisdom24: I want to try that golden tiger stuff though I don't know where to find it

anthonyprozzo: @jeeperscreepers71 no doubt, as long as guns are maintained correctly, ammo that i have used in any of my guns have never created actual issues, match or Russian bulk. good practice ammo

bigchrisdom24: @CajCoo is it really I'll have to check it out

ROL SAL: I have been using this ammo and no problems yet, sometimes is the rifle it self with the problems. What I did do was change the original extractor spring to a wolf spring. But I still didn't had any issues with it before the change.

DavArroyo7242: Good review!!!, but you got lucky with the shipment, I guess they are made by two separate manufacturers. I had Failures To Extract on a rifle length 20", but no problems with a carbine 14.5" system, mine were not the marked ones. For plinking it works for any serious shooting it does not. Personally I will never buy the brand again, the money saved was not worth the inconvenience!!!

aliensunderground: go to ammunition to go.they have everything you want.i use them all the time they are excellent

Gordon King: Brandon Lee You tell me I don't know that much about guns i bought a DPMS AR 15 Panther Arms dont know if it's gun r bad loads. Is this model a bad gun let me know?

pooknuckle13: OK.... so, here it goes.I just got back from the range and found some major issues with this ammo and a svg. 'axis'.First, the bullet had shavings' on itself from the copper jacket grinding against the casing when manufactured. Second, one rim out of 40(that I used) was deformed. Thirdly,My bolt siezed...wait a minute for this to sink in.Then after releasing the bolt,I inspected the 'axis' and casing.No issues I found no issues.Promptly fired 40rds. of zinc plated 62gr. ammo and had no problems.

bigchrisdom24: @quicklady what brand AR do u have

redneckz97: Ar15 sucks ass

Cooper: If you wanna save 4 cents per round (I know, penny pinching-- but I'm a college student and like to shoot a lot- it adds up too) its actually cheaper, right now at least, to order the individual boxes. But then of course you don't get the dry box. But you can order more than 500 but less than 1000.

shawnsent: Iam very accurate, I can shoot 12 inch groups at 50 yard on a bench rest. if I shoot off hand, I can do whopping 2 feet group, Iam awsome. practice every day and you can do the same.

FixWithFirepower: @bigchrisdom24 cool what brand of 7.62 u getting? Last I checked Tula and Brown Bear were the cheapest. I spend a bit more on the Silver Bear because i like that silver color case.

bigchrisdom24: When I first got the ammo I went thru 5 30 rd mags with no issues idk though

FixWithFirepower: I'm always lookin for cheap .223 ammo for my mini-14. I agree with you about the steel cased stuff getting a bad rap for no reason. I've never had problems with it.

Typh00n203: i bought about 100 rounds of this stuff and my ar did not like it at all, its a shame. I shot wpa steel case out of my ar no problem but the herters would just not feed at all, in fact my bolt would get stuck and so badly i needed to get a screw driver to pull it back for it to eject the unfired round.

jeeperscreepers71: @anthonyprozzo someone else told me the same thing makes complete sense. it looks like it was melted so i just assumed it was. im still going to use it in my mini 14. im just going to make sure i have my chamber brush before i go to the range.

quicklady: i bought 200 rounds from cabelas. they shot so well and accurate out of my ar that i ordered 2k more when they were selling them for $3.79/box.

anthonyprozzo: @jeeperscreepers71 The coating on the cases will not melt off into your gun. The steel casings will not create the proper seal when fired in the barrel that brass will, the steel wont expand. this creates carbon build up inside the chamber from the unfit seal of the cartridge. I myself will not fire steel cased ammo out of my AR, my Armalite doesn't like it.

Hawk1946: No problem with Herter's, TulAmmo or Wolf at all. It all works fine in my Bushmaster.

bigchrisdom24: @DavArroyo7242 yeah maybe I did get lucky I've ordered 2000 rounds of this ammo and haven't had an issue so idk

Tzintzuntzan Morales: The first time I used Herters I had a double feed. The rest of the mag functioned properly and so did the next magazine. I don't plan to buy any more

naeverse: I have put about 12 mags of this stuff through my Bushmaster Ar-15. Not a single problem. That was all in a single day too.

jeeperscreepers71: the problem with the polymer coated steel case is the polymer if you burn through a couple mags and get your gun hot the polymer melts and acts like glue i was shooting herters and a case glued in my mini 14. i did get it out after a few minutes but my understanding is that the lacquered cases are better. and the only co. i know that still makes them is golden tiger which im told is much better ammo and still in the same price range. i have yet to fire it my self though

Brandon Lee: Cyclinder? Lol. Good AR's should run it fine I don't know what you are running but I have shot thousands of rounds of this stuff and have had 0 malfunctions.

drtrolish: @CajCoo Any ammo you can buy is cheaper in bulk, unless you dont have the moeny to buy that many rounds. I dont know of any manufacturer of anything that wont give you a volume discount.

altops: If your gun can't digest every single kind of ammo without fail, throw it in the dumpster, get a gun that can, because when SHTF/WROL is upon you, you don't want to be too picky about what second guessing your gun your gun is shooting. I have two DPMS uppered guns and there's nothing they wont eat.
