Ammo Overview

Manufacturer - Tula
Bullets - 55 grain full metal jacket (FMJ)
Casings - Steel with Berdan primers
Quantity - 1000 rounds per case; 10 boxes per case
Muzzle Velocity - 2,953 fps


Tula is a great option for cheap outdoor range day ammo, if you have no intention of reloading your spent casings. This ammunition come loaded using non-corrosive Berdan primers and non-reloadable steel casings. These steel casings are much cheaper than brass, which means that this ammunition is cheaper than the brass cased stuff.

This ammo is also loaded with 55 grain FMJ bullets, which is the most popular grain weight on the civilian market. These bullets may be either zinc or copper plated. Tula started using zinc instead of copper to plate their bullet in 2015, to cut cost and to improve performance. You will know if you got the zinc plated bullets, because it will look like Tula forgot to plate the bullets.

Tula Ammo is manufactured in Russia, using strict but affordable methods to provide customers with a reliable product.

A: Thank you for reaching out! I'm afraid we can only accept orders for ammo that we currently have in stock. This ammo is, unfortuately, out of stock, and I can't promise exactly when we'll get more in our warehouse. There's a MASSIVE demand for ammo right now, so we're working super hard to keep a good selection available for our customers. We also update our site the second we get new ammo in stock, so I hope you'll check in again with us often. As I write we have currently got nine cases of Federal American Eagle 223 Rem in stock: bulkammo.com/bulk-223-ammo-223rem55fmjbtfederal-1000. This ammo is a little more expensive than Tula's, mainly because it's brass cased instead of steel. The advantages of brass are that it is reloadable and it also keeps your rifle's action significantly cleaner, so you do get more bang for your buck, as it were. This ammo's considered one of the gold standards at American Ranges for economical target shooting. And hey! There are no dumb questions. I'm still learning something new everyday myself. If I can ever answer any questions for you, you know how to find me. -Dave

A: Hello Ryan, These 55gr. FMJ rounds by Tula in .223 have a lead core, but Tula does sometimes use a bi-metal jacket and they do have a steel case which are both magnetic. For a non-magnetic round, I would suggest a brass cased round.
