223 Rem - 62 Grain HP - Tula - 1000 Rounds
This Tula .223 ammo is loaded with a 62 grain jacketed hollow point bullet that delivers a muzzle velocity of 3025 feet per second with over 1300 foot pounds of energy. It is perfect for target shooting and varmint hunting out of lower (1:8 or 7) twist barrels. This 1000 round case lot is the perfect addition to your just in case supply or for the training course you have been considering. You'll get 50 boxes of ammo, with each box containing 20 rounds of ammo that's ready for your AR-15.
Since its introduction in 1964, the .223 has become the most popular mid-sized rifle round in the United States. While initially dismissed for its demure, .22 sized bullet, the hyper velocity of the round makes it truly devastating. While similar to the 5.56 NATO round, and capable of being fired in 5.56 chambers, care should be taken not to load the 5.56 into a .223 chamber.
The Tula Cartridge Plant is part of the Rostec Group and is the supplier for the Russian military as well as providing a large portion of commercial ammunition for export: and business has been "booming", as they say. While the steel cases may be either berdan or boxer primed, US shooters find sufficient value in the economy of this product and bulk quantities. Order yours now because… you never know.
