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.
