I don't run it in that cartridge,,,

It works for range fodder,,,
I don't run it in that cartridge,,,
But I have run it in 9mm and .380.

In fact it runs very nicely in my CZ-75B, Bersa Thunder 380, and Beretta 85.

But man oh man is it dirty!

But what the heck,,,
I hafta clean the guns anyways.

I have no dog in the steel cased or not steel cased fight, but there are plenty of people who like it and plenty of people who dislike it. The difference seems to be it works well/consistently for the former and not the latter.

So I would suggest buying a box or two and running it through the intended gun(s), before buying in bulk and possibly ending up with a lot of ammo that doesn't run well/consistently in your gun(s).

Not sure about 7.62x39, but Tula .223 runs flawlessly in my AR and is surprisingly accurate. I also use Tula in my CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical without any issues. It is a little dirtier than brass but I enjoy cleaning my guns so it's not an issue.
