THIS AMMO MAY HAVE SOME MINOR RUST SPOTS. We noticed a few rust spots on some ammo that came on the same shipment as this product. We did an inspection and didn't find any rust on this particular product, but we don't have time to fully inspect every round. The rust was very minor (sample photos are included above) and the ammo will still function normally.

This 223 Rem cartridge by Tula offers a 62 grain projectile, which falls squarely within the middle of the range for what its caliber offers. Its bullet sports a zinc full metal jacket that will help it to feed reliably in semi-automatic rifles including AR platform firearms, in addition to preventing lead fouling within their bores. This round represents a cost-effective ammunition choice, as its steel casing is significantly less costly to produce than brass -- and its price reflects that. The trade-off of course is that, along with its non-corrosive Berdan primer, this round is unfit for work at a reloading bench.

Tula has continually produced high quality ammunition since they first opened their doors 100 miles south of Moscow in 1880. They now produce over 40 types of small arms ammunition for the Russian military as well as for export to over 20 countries’ commercial markets throughout the world.

A: Hello Kyra! This case of ammo weighs 26.6 pounds including packaging. I'm afraid I am unable to confirm its dimensions for you, though.

A: Thanks for asking, Alex! This cartridge's bullet has a lead core, but its jacket is strengthened by a layer of steel so it will attract a magnet. We do also have virtually the same ammo available with nonmagnetic, brass jacketed bullets: bulkammo.com/1000-rounds-of-223-rem-ammo-by-tula-62gr-hp

A: Thank you for reaching out, Frank! This ammunition would ship in its manufacturer's cardboard box. We do also offer an overboxing option when we can, where the ammo is additionally packaged in a generic, nondescript box. (The pandemic scare has left us unable to offer overboxing for the moment.) In compliance with shipping law, we must still mark overboxed ammo with "ORM-D."
