Tula Cartridge Works - Full Metal Jacket - 55 Grain 223 Remington Ammo - 1000 Rounds
Tula's 55 grain Full Metal Jacket 223 ammo delivers an approximate muzzle velocity of 3200 feet per second and over 1280 foot pounds of energy. It is suitable for target shooting but is ideal for range training, especially with semi-automatic firearms designed for extended use due to the steel cases. With this product, you'll get a full case of bulk 223 ammo – with 50 boxes inside that each contain 20 rounds of ammunition ready for the range. 1000 rounds will get you through at least a little bit of training for the upcoming weekend, right? Better get two cases.
Not to be confused with the Tula Arsenal founded in the 18th century the Tula Cartridge plant never the less produces ammunition for the Russian military as well as for commercial export. With global hot spots remaining warm, ammunition production remains high and Tula has maintained its standards of reliability: Russian engineering has always always promoted function over form, steel cases with boxer primers.
Development of the .223 Remington round was concurrent with the US military's search for a new combat rifle to reduce the load burden of the 7.62 NATO rifles and ammunition. The result is perhaps the most popular sporting and defense round in the United States. Not to be confused with the 5.56mm NATO, the .223 has a shorter lead, and therefor MAY be fired in 5.56 chambers, but the reverse is not true.
