People who do a lot of volume shooting and rifle drills know how important it is to keep costs low, while still using a round that will fire every time. That is why so many of those people choose Tula Ammo for their training needs.

This 223 Remington ammunition is produced in Russia, using berdan primed steel casings. Steel cased ammunition is cheaper than brass cased ammo, and just like brass ammo, it has a reputation for proper function in semi-auto rifles. Unlike brass cased ammo, the spent casings from this ammo can not be reloaded. Each round has a 55 grain full metal jacket bullet, which is either copper plated or zinc plated. Under the zinc or copper is a thin layer for steel, and then a lead core. Due to the steel in each bullet, this ammo is not ideal for use in indoor ranges or with steel targets, and it may not be allowed at your local indoor range.

This case of 1000 rounds is split up into 25 boxes, each containing 40 rounds.

A: Hi Ray. Thanks for looking to BulkAmmo.com for your Tula ammo. Tula tends to run a bit dirtier than some, but cleaner than Winchester IMO. There isn't much difference, if any, regarding the wear on the barrel. The steel layer is very soft and thin. You hear a lot of rumors, but they are just that. The steel casings can be a bit harder on the extractor, but for the money you save on one case, put in a new on. I have several cases through my RRA and have had no issues yet. We only have one discount and it is for orders of subtotaling $5000 (product cost only, no shipping or tax). We will give you a 5% discount on the entire order. We price our products so "close to the bone" that we just don't have a lot of room for additional discounts. Let me know if I can assist further or give us a call!

A: Hi Dylan. Tula ammo is loaded with non-corrosive components. Berdan primers in military surplus ammo is almost always corrosive but with commercial loads they are not.

A: Hello Mike! Tula ammunition is made in their own manufacturing plants located in Russia. The Tula ammunition plant is located 100 miles south of Moscow while the Ulyanovsk ammunition plant is located 550 miles South-East of Moscow.

A: Hello Jared, This Tula ammunition is loaded with a lead core, bi-metal jacket. The bi-metal jacket as a zinc plating on it. The zinc takes the place of the typical copper, but serves the same purpose. This allows Tula to continue manufacturing ammunition at a lower price even though copper prices are constantly increasing.
