223 Rem - 62 Grain HP - Tula - 20 Rounds
The 62 grain jacketed hollow point bullet by Tula exits the muzzle at 3025 feet per second with over 1300 foot pounds of energy. As it is heavier than the more common 55 grain, it is suitable for varmint hunting and target practice out of lower twist, such as 1:8 or 1:7, barrels.

The .223 Remington cartridge was derived from the .222 Remington for military adoption in the early 1960's. Since then it has become the most popular mid range rifle cartridge in the United States. While NATO adopted a variant known as the 5.56 NATO, the two calibers should be carefully separated to ensure that the NATO cartridge is not fired in .223 chambers. The reverse, however, firing a .223 in the 5.56 chamber, is perfectly safe, making the .223 very versatile.
Manufacturing ammunition for both the Russian military as well as commercial export, the Tula Cartridge Works has a reputation for making reliable cartridges in considerable mass quantities. The steel cases may be berdan or boxer primed and are therefore not guaranteed to be reloadable. Many shooters, however, find the economy of Tula ammunition to be more than adequate for single use for training or hunters of varmints.
