Ammo Overview

Quantity - 1,000 rounds, 50 boxes of 20 rounds Manufacturer - Tula Cartridge Works Bullets - 55 grain hollow point (HP) Casings - Non-reloadable Steel (may come loaded with either Boxer or Berdan primers) Muzzle Velocity - 3241 fps Max Pressure - 49,700 psi


This 223 ammo by Tula provides a great value for shooters that go through high volumes of ammo. This steel cased ammo is seated with 55 grain hollow point projectiles that have a muzzle velocity of 3,241 feet per second. Tula's 223 ammo works great in some rifles but in other rifles on occasion has issues and as a result we recommend buying a few boxes first prior to buying a whole case to see how it performs in your rifle. For folks who have rifles that perform well with Tula's 223 ammo it provides great savings over brass cased ammo.

Tula's plant, located in Russia, dates back to the 1880's and it produces a wide range of calibers for commercial markets and for military applications.

A: This ammunition is no more or less accurate than the vast majority of bulk, FMJ-type 5.56/.223 ammo. You could clean it as often as you want to, or you could keep adding more lubricant/oil and shoot until the rifle breaks.

A: All three are made in Russia and feature steel cases with bimetal jackets, which are standard for most Russian ammo. They are loaded within .223 max pressures and are an economical alternative to American-made brass cased ammo, especially for those who do not reload.

A: Brass cases can be saved and reloaded or sold/traded to those who reload ammunition - steel cases are not conducive to reloading and are worth very little once they have been fired.

A: The hollow point in this bullet does not promote expansion or fragmentation. It would not be ideal for varmint hunting.

A: Some ranges do not allow ammunition that attracts a magnet. This is for various reasons, the foremost of which is because those who run the ranges believe bullets with steel in them to be armor piercing.

A: No, we have not.

A: This Tula ammo uses a small rifle primer.

A: These Tula steel cases have a polymer coating which resists extreme temperatures and will not cause the problems you describe. They are safe to use.
