- Q & A
If you hunt you know it isn’t feasible to cart around a 500-round box of ammunition. Sure, you’re a high-volume shooter, and you always will be, but you need something like this 20-round box to shove in your pocket when you hunt. Sometimes it’s all about portability. Another reason this is a great size is if you’ve never tried ammunition from the venerable Tula Arms Plant before; 20 is a nice place to start. Of course, if you buy a 20-round box, you’re going to end up hooked; you’ll be back for more. It’s easy enough to solve both these issues: buy more than one box. That way you can easily stash it in your pocket or range bag with the knowledge you’ve got more at home – and burn through a single box, find out you like it, and not have to wait for another order to arrive.
Tula makes this ammunition at their plant in Tula, Russia. The plant was founded in 1712 by decree of Tsar Peter I of Russia, who decided there wasn’t enough ammunition immediately available for the townsfolk to defend themselves against invading nomads. At the time most weaponry was based in Moscow, and it was just too far away for the citizens of Tula to rely on. And so, Tula was founded. They opened the plant with the newest technology, which, at the time, meant things like water machines. Fortunately they’ve continued to update the plant, so they’ve continued to produce ammo countless shooters love for its quality and affordable price.
This is lightweight at 55 grain, but that means it’s capable of faster speeds. Since these are Hollow Point rounds they deliver rapid energy transfer and begin to expand immediately upon impact while also decelerating, a combination that creates a massive wound track. This ammunition can be used for home defense, hunting game such as whitetail deer – although many hunters have successfully taken down feral hogs with it, and plinking. You can also use it for tactical training and shooting drills. There are 20 rounds in this single box. If you want to load your .223-chambered rifle without emptying your wallet, give Tula a try.
(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.)

Good for the money.on 8/2/2016
The ammo preformed as I expected. Fired about 100 rounds. Only one failure to feed that took quite a hard yank on the charging handle to eject. Ever round did fire. Good for practice and plinking. Couldn't get better that a 2.25" group at 100 yards. But didn't expect much better. Good value when you want to shoot and not break the bank.
