Tula Cartridge Works - Full Metal Jacket - 55 Grain 223 Remington Ammo - 1000 Rounds
Created out of the .222 cartridge, there can be no argument that .223 Remington ammo has proven itself more than just another varmint caliber. Purpose driven development for the round concluded in 1964 with its adoption as the new US military rifle round, increasing a soldier’s ammo capacity considerably. Field experience showed the round could be quite devastating given the right bullet weight and rifle barrel twist. And the creation of other calibers based upon it (5.56 NATO and .223 Wylde for eg) have been careful not to lose the ability to chamber it also, making it a very versatile ammunition to have around. Tula’s 55 grain full metal jacket bullet leaves the barrel at 2953 ft per sec with approximately 1280 ft lbs of energy. This particular product is suited for range training and target practice and even for use in military rifle style competitions. With 1000 rounds, it is easy to keep some for any and all applications.
Tula Cartridge Works has evolved from Tzarist Russian arsenal to Soviet arms and ammo maker to commercial exporter. All ammunition from Tula is manufactured to Russian military specifications, which means it does not have to be pretty, but it absolutely must work. That is a standard Tula continues to maintain to this day.
