Ruskie made steel cased ammo. Dirty but it works. Never had an issue with the 223 and 7.62x39mm stuff I had. I preferred the Silver Bear line which was zinc plated. The lacquer coated steel cased ammo can leave a nasty residue in a hot chamber.
I think it all depends on what you are shooting it in. I love Russian ammo (Tula, Wolf, Ulyanovsk, etc.) but I have seen some people experience issues with the Bear series (Brown, golden, silver etc.) If the firearm(s) you plan on using it in is at all finicky then I would pass.
Is that the out the door price? If so, jump on it. I use tulammo for the range all the time, that's what it's for. Around here the Tulammo is $10.97 a box of 50 so 'out the door' 500 rounds costs me $117.38 (Walmart)
