Whether you're looking for ammo for long-term storage or you're just looking for a good option for affordable 223 ammo, this Tula 223 ammo is a great choice. Spam cans have long been used by the Russian military to store ammo to ensure its protected from the elements and good to go when the need arises. This spam can comes shipped with an opener and contains 25 boxes with 20 rounds each of 223 Rem ammo fitted with a 55 grain full metal jacket projectile.

This steel cased ammo is non-corrosive, berdan-primed, non-reloadable, and contains some steel in the bullet's jacket making it attracted to a magnet. This rugged ammo is made in Tula, Russia where they've making ammo since the 1880's. For those who want to be prepared for the future, having a couple of spam cans set aside offers great peace of mind for a great value.

A: Hello, These 55gr. FMJ rounds by Tula in .223 have a lead core. They do have steel cases though and sometimes use a bi-metal jacket so they will attract a magnet. For non-magnetic rounds, I would suggest a brass cased round.

A: Hello John, The shelf life of these Tula rounds is very long. As long as you keep them in a low humidity location, they should last for decades without any issues.
