Tula Primers
« on: April 21, 2013, 01:23:01 pm »
Has anyone every used any of these small pistol primers? Any concerns or adjustments recommendations that need to be made when using them?

The reason I am asking is I have found quite a few of these and I'm trying to decide if I want to get them or not.

I have used 1000's of tula  SPP's ,they go bang every time with my 1911-2011 handguns, You might get a light primer hit from time to time if you have a striker fired handgun with  a lighter then factory  striker spring..

+1 on them having hard primer cups and light strikes.  I bought some and have been doing some digging on them too, and the only folks I've seen report credible problems are those with stiker fires and light match type hammers.  There are also some reports of them being a bit larger in diameter- but that only seems to really concern folks using S&B and Lake City brass which tend to run tight in the primer pockets.
One of these days I'll say something totally brilliant- and it'll look so friggin cool when I add it here!
