Availability: Out of stock
.223 can be used for hunting a variety of game, but one many don’t consider is hogs. If you’re thinking it’d be easier to take down a massive hog with a 12-gauge shotgun slug, you’re dead wrong. In fact, more than one good-sized hog has absorbed multiple 12-gauge slugs and simply kept running. Some theorize hogs are more susceptible to hydrostatic shock than they are to plain old blunt-force trauma, which leads to heavy bleeding. Hydrostatic shock has to do with the loss of other fluids related to significant tissue damage, and a hog hit by a .223 round is going down hard. With that in mind, Savage Arms released a gun called the Hog Hunter not long ago and made sure to offer it in .223 Remington. Of course, in order to make a truly effective kill shot, you need hollow points.
These are lightweight 55 grain rounds, so they have increased speed. They’re HP rounds and begin to expand and simultaneously decelerate on impact, creating a catastrophic wound channel. This ammunition can be used for hunting, home defense, and plinking. If you’re going to use them for hog hunting, make sure your shot placement is precise. Each round zips down-range with lightning speed with a muzzle velocity of 3241 feet per second and hits home with all the energy and power you expect from a .223. These are steel-cased rounds; Tula uses a bimetal layering process to make the cases and then coats the completed rounds with a polymer so they’ll feed and cycle consistently.
Tula was founded in 1712, and for more than 300 years they’ve been manufacturing ammunition at their factory in Tula, Russia. They’re well known for production of economically-priced ammunition and provide ammo to various branches of the military and law enforcement all around the world. There are 1000 HP rounds in this case, making it a great choice because you won’t run out in the middle of hunting season. That and there will be enough rounds to get some practice in, too. Whatever you do with your .223-chambered rifle, do it. Don’t let your rifle gather dust because of the price of ammo; get some of this affordably-priced ammunition from Tula and get yourself to the range.
(This ammunition is steel-cased. Some ranges do not allow rounds with steel cases, so make sure you double check before trying to use this ammunition at your area range.)
