Tula Cartridge Works Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) 62 Grain 223 Remington Ammo - 1000 Rounds
In so far as their being a popular rifle round, the .223 Remington has taken the market by storm far and beyond what an otherwise demure, medium sized cartridge could ever suggest. Well into its sixth decade, it has done so for far longer than anyone could have guessed, and this despite the introduction of even smaller and hotter rounds. This cartridge’s commercial survivability is explained by its versatility in being able to be fired by both military and commercial firearms and its economy: both in manufacture/remanufacture and the sheer number of makers keeps costs relatively comfortable. Tula’s 62 grain fmj bullet leaves the muzzle at approximately 3025 ft per sec with 1200 ft pounds of energy: depending on barrel length, of which there is a great variety in the AR platform. This 1k round lot is ideal for everything from plinking to stockpiling.
Russia’s Tula Cartridge Works has over two centuries of experience making ammunition that is required to perform under the most severe environmental conditions. The Berdan primed, steel cased ammunition may not be the most aesthetically pleasing looking ammunition on the market, but it is designed to work, no matter how long kept in storage and no matter what may be going on outside: to a Russian mindset, nothing is more attractive than functionality.
