Thumbs up TulAmmo primers

I purchased some of the TulAmmo SP primers from Midway and loaded approximately 300 rounds of 9mm last evening.
The first thing that I noted was that every primer in the 100 pack was oriented in the same direction-I didn't have to use the flip tray. The primers seemed very uniform and loaded smoothly via the primer system on my Dillon.
There were no problems with high primers but I did crush one primer in a crimped primer pocket (my fault, not the primer).
Today I went to the range and fired 120 rounds though an XDM 9mm and a CZP01. There were no FTFs (no double strikes required) or apparent weak ignitions. The rounds all hit where I aimed them (at 7 yards-not an accuracy test).
It would be impossible for me to tell the difference between these TulAmmo primers and the CCI 500s which ignited the last batch of 9mm ammo that I shot through these same 2 pistols 2 days ago.

I bought a case (1000) LP from the Fredericksburg gunshow and I have spent about 600 of them now. I have no issues with the TA primers at all. Clean, no FTF, no priming issues. Nothing but success with them here. I paid $22.00 for the box and it was an excellent investment. I have used these in both large pistol and .270, .30-06 and .300 win mag reloads. Nothing but fire.

The Russian primers are very good. Best of all, they cost less!

Off topic, but related; I'm very impressed with Tula's steel cased 75gr. .223 and 9x18. Quality stuff, for sure.

ETA: I forgot the reason I wanted to post. Thanks Doc...I'm in the market for SP primers, so I'll take advantage of the nice price point.

Thanks for the heads up/range test Doc. I'm looking for primers right now to be honest. Going to start making the .40 S&W reloads in the near future.

I usually have little regard for commie QC, but it seems as if capitalism has made inroads with Tula/Wolf. I used 1k of Tula .45 Auto steel-cased ammo and it was more accurate than Aguila brass, as well as functioning perfectly. I've used 6k Wolf SRP with no problems at all. I've been very impressed, especially considering the price.

I loaded 200 rounds of 115g 9mm with federal primers. My Sig liked them fine, but my son using his XDM had several primer strikes without percussion in the first couple rounds and decided to use his factory stuff. Any thoughts? Are the XDMs finicky?

Thanks
