    In an argument with a guy online. 9mm 115 grain RN FMJ. Which is more powerful Remington general purpose/target or Tulammo?

    I have no dog in this hunt since I don't own any 9mm's

    I'll be moving along now.

    I'd bet on Tul but all it takes is a chronograph. I have some Russian steel 9mm (monarch I think) but no Remington right now or I'd test it for you.

    tula by 50fps by comparison of two different tests but I don't have conditions for those done in test 1 link.

    Velocity Comparison of Popular 9mm Range Ammo (Chrono Used)

    doesn't matter if it were twice as fast.
    If bullet doesn't make contact, it won't matter.

    the biggest difference between Tula and a large number of the others is cost.
    due to being steel cased and non reloadable, they wind up being cheaper (when purchased retail)

    BTW, you do know that arguing on the internet is a fool's errand right?

    If 50 fps is the difference between Life and Death, you have many more issues, to deal with, that this... And arguing about it is Pointless.....

    Dern, guess I got that saying wrong... I will do push-ups for that one. I am not going to have to worry about that "Idle Hands" thing..... my home remodel has my hands mighty full right now.

    And back on track, I would go with the Tulammo. I have a 9mm but very little target ammo as I tend to use it. But I have a bunch of Hornady Critical Defense rounds.....

    personally...im not much on the 50ft bang your dead scenarios...for me its more of a off in the distance pow heard right before they drop from a whole in the head type of thing coming by the way of controlled breathing trigger squeeze from a Remington 700..but thats just me...so i really dont have a answer for ya

    700 is a good weapon. But is doesn't have the range or power of my old Barrett M82A1. Even although it's only 50 fps it might help cycle the guys slide better than the Remington does. Nice meeting you.

    Snake - Not much has the range/power of the Barrett M82A1. Really wish I had an extra $15k laying around ($9-12k for the rifle and the rest for the OMGAWD is that expensive ammo).

    lmao...dont get me wrong i love a .50cal..but thats like comparing a L.A.W. system to a AT4...while both are quite capable...the Barrett will always be the supreme be all end all...wait i guess i just agreed with you...

    I love mine Dark. It is expensive but I have a good, reliable source for it. A few guys were talking in the shout box the other night and ten rounds of .50 BMG API were less than thirty dollars. Don't forget your optics. BTW there was an article in an old shotgun news about a guy who bought a book and built his own .50 from scratch.

    I use the steel stuff in IDPA with no issues. That way I'm not tempted to crawl around on the floor wrestling with the brass whores afterwards. I'll shoot brass when I can recover my empties in a civilized fashion.

    I have seen this on the range, in direct violation of range rules, and to boot, my brass was reloadable brass and the brass whore scrambling right in front of me stealing my brass was shooting non reloadable steel crap. I had him tossed off the range and got my brass back to boot. The range masters laughed their collective butts off. They went so far as to threaten him with arrest for theft and if he didn't leave immediately, trespass. He bitched about his entrance fee, and I immediately paid it back to him, and waved bye bye. I guess that might be why the range masters gave my brass back.
