I personally like the Russian people. Stalin went a little over the edge, when he killed 25 million fellow Russians, but we will leave politics out of this.
O.K. after consulting with the drunks here, we figured this one out.
The answer is vodka and the gulag.
Russians love their vodka. Their hot tired thirsty. Working in the ammo factory under miserable conditions.
Lunch whistle goes off. Now what do you think they are doing when they go outside for some air and a bite too eat?
Correct. Not water. Their hitting the old bottle. Now back too work.
They dont know if they put powder in those casing or sand. Their drunk as a skunk.
Now Ivan the boss comes along.
"I read j4 post on Gunco. This j4 ruin our product. Imperialist Yankee dogs. You put our company name Tula very small print on package. Or you go too gulag."
The poor workers have no choice. Obey, or the gulag.
Too import products into the U.S. they have too stamp where it was made.
Kinda like the old Jap trick from years ago. They named a town U.S.A..
So products shipped from the town were "Made in the U.S.A."
Russians caught on and put Tula in small print.
So next time your ordering ammo for your AR..
Flat out ask em. "Is this crap from that drunk Ruskie factory Tula?"
They have too give you a yes or no.
But good question. You helped me much with these ARs. Thank you.
I hope this helps with your future ammo purchases.
