    Most accurate ammo I found was Cheetah, which is no longer available, from Zimbabwe made on Norinco machines...what I have is hoarded...
    Range requires hollow point, so Wolff HP it is...

    TulAmmo is non-corrosive.

    TulAmmo is made in Tula. Brown/Silver/Golden Bear is made in Barnaul. Wolf uses Barnaul x39 for their Polyformance and WPA lines. So no, not all at same factory. Years ago, Wolf WAS using Tula for their Polyformance line, but not anymore.

    Golden Tiger, as a general proposition. The Yugos seem to like the Sellier & Bellot, though.

    The best I've shot is Zimbabwe. Brass cased and clean. I get great groups out of my Bulgarian and Polish AK's. I'm down to my last crate, and no more coming in.

    I had used lot of the Cheetah back in the mid 90's when it was around $30 for a 200 round battle pack. There is some for sale on another board right now for $125 for a battle pack.

    MMMMMMMMMMM....Golden Tiger...its like premium gasoline for AKs. ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!
    Without ammo, it may as well be an expensive door jam or paperweight.....

    All your guns don't mean squat if you don't have the ammo to feed them....

    I did actually buy my first ever box of Tula at Wally this past weekend 40rd box. I've never tried it. There's a couple of downers in this thread about it, mainly why I'm asking. I'll usually buy online in bulk.
    Anyways.....is the yellow box Norinco stuff something to hold onto for special occasions or bugging out compared to current issue?

    I buy the crap at Academy a lot that's remarked Monarch. I believe it's Barnaul and it's all lacquered which is why I like to get it. Otherwise, I pick up lots of lacquered case stuff I find online. I'm also not a fan of Tula. I've mostly used the .223/5.56 stuff, but I had to run it on the high gas setting on every gun I've used it in. It's weak stuff.

    The one issue I ever had was with Brown Bear soft points (from sportsman's guide I think), the flash on this was noticeably bright and distracting, compared to the wolf black box stuff I had on hand. This was all shot with a bare muzzle out of the same rifle, so I feel confident it was the ammo and not some other variable.

    I started using Tula ammo from wally world in 2012. No shipping fees 5 bucks a box it shoots accurate enough and way better than WPA I've shot. Probably over 3000 rounds and

    only one failure to chamber.(shell would not go half way in was to wide), Poly coated and its so cheap. I can shoot 100-120 rounds in a weekend range trip and get home, hold the

    barrel to the light and it still looks clean. Swab and clean anyway. Dirtiest part is always the piston tube.
