Details

The .223 Remington round was created in 1964 by, of course, Remington Arms. One of the most common points of confusion about this cartridge is its similarities to the 5.56 NATO round, but those are easily explained. Although the .223 and 5.56 appear similar on the outside, they do have significant differences internally. For instance, the 5.56 has a longer throat than the .223, and, more importantly, it’s loaded to higher internal pressures than the .223. Because of that, 5.56 rounds should not be fired in guns rated only for .223 ammunition.

At 62 grain these are considered pretty lightweight for the .223 cartridge size. Because they’re lighter weight they’re capable of traveling down-range at greater speeds and also won’t significantly impact felt recoil. These are Full Metal Jacket rounds and will not expand on impact, but they are prone to over-penetration as all target rounds are so it’s a good idea to have a trustworthy backstop in place at the range, whether indoors or outdoors. Each of these rounds flies down-range with a muzzle velocity of 3025 feet per second and impacts its targets with a muzzle energy of 1260 foot-pounds. These rounds are great for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking, because some days you just want to blow away a bunch of water jugs and paint cans.

When you order this box of ammunition from Wolf you get 500 target rounds, which is enough to keep you and your favorite rifle busy for awhile. Wolf is a subsidiary of Tula, a company that was founded in 1712 with the sole purpose of protecting the locals from invading nomads. Of course, Tula expanded far beyond its original business plan and today supplies shooters all over the world with ammunition. 300 years is a long time to be in business, and Tula continues to come up with new ways to meet the needs of gun owners just like you. These rounds are produced in Tula, Russia, and made in steel cases with berdan primer to save you money. Place your order now and get to work honing your marksmanship skills.

(This ammunition is steel-cased. Some ranges do not allow rounds with steel cases, so make sure you double check before trying to use this ammunition at your area range.)

A: Hello! This ammunition is loaded with a lead core, bi-metal jacket projectile. Due to the steel content of the jacket, this ammunition will not pass any type of magnet test.
