But that’s a problem no more! This range-friendly 223 Rem cartridge features a 62 grain bullet with a jacket made entirely of cartridge brass. Such a jacket is still an affordable way to ensure a bullet doesn’t deform under pressure or foul a rifle’s bore, and because it is totally nonmagnetic it’s acceptable for use in ranges that ban steel!
You’ll find nothing but steel in this round’s shell casing, though. Tula uses it because it’s far more affordable than brass, which contains valuable copper. You can’t reload steel casings, and they may permit more carbon fouling to accumulate in the action, but Tula does use a special polymer treatment to help their casings feed and extract fluidly.
This round also has a Berdan primer, although it’s nothing like the corrosive one you’d find in an old milsurp round. This round’s primer and propellant are both designed to burn nice and cleanly, lessening just how much you’ll have to scrub out your rifle after your range day!
