- Q & A
Looking for .223 ammunition capable of performing well in temperatures ranging from -4 degrees Fahrenheit to +122 degrees Fahrenheit (that’s -20 to +50 degrees for you Celsius fans)? Then this Tula .223 55 grain FMJ ammunition is for you. Tula has been manufacturing both firearms and ammunition since 1880 in their Russia-based plant. And in Russia, home of bears, mail-order brides and freezing temperatures, they’ve created a rugged round just for avid shooters.
This is economical ammunition, but that doesn’t mean for a second it isn’t made to high standards. At Tula, they understand the importance of offering affordability without sacrificing target-round quality. These rounds feature a bi-metal jacket of both steel and copper with a lead core, which gives them greater ballistic performance than some similar brands. The steel cases are coated in a special polymer and boxer priming is used, so they should keep your rifle cleaner than expected. Overall, Tula designed a good, solid round at great prices.
Muzzle velocity is listed at 3,241 feet per second, and when you take their 55 grain weight into consideration, that means these fly out of the barrel of your rifle at a good clip with nice balance. Each round will also leave its mark on your targets with a muzzle energy of 1,282 foot-pounds. In addition, shooters who have used this ammunition in significant numbers say it has excellent grouping and feeds reliably. It’s great for target practice, training, and plinking. So if you’re looking to put a few rounds down-range and save money, order this single box of 20 rounds. But be warned, it’ll leave your rifle asking for more.
If you’d rather buy a pack of bulk 223, you can get this same Tula 223 ammo in a 500 round package here.

Tula is my favorite brand of .223 ammo. It works extremely well in both my AR15 and my Ruger Mini-14. It doesn't have the accuracy that a higher grade of ammunition offers, but if you're shooting a lot of rounds just for fun, you can't beat it for the price.
