So I saw on another forum that some guys were talking about new Tula 223 and 45acp using boxer primers and that it is reloadable. They claimed that you can reload it at least once or twice before the polymer coating comes off. This would drastically cut reloading costs if true. Can someone please elaborate on this? I was not aware that you could reload polymer coated steel cased ammo.

It's not recommended. Steel acts differently than brass (expands contracts, etc.). While I have heard of it being reloaded (other steel case ammo), I've also heard that it destroys the dies (the polymer coating shears off in the dies and ruins them, leaving scratches in brass when reloading it.).

I've loaded Tula & Wolf before and used the loads at lost brass matches. I don't use it all the time and have not had any problems loading it.
