- Q & A
AR-15’s have been gaining increasing popularity as home defense guns. Although their greater bulk makes them less maneuverable than a pistol, it’s hard to argue that they don’t have quite a few benefits when it comes to protecting your castle. Their length makes aiming them simpler for many shooters, which makes accuracy and therefore usefulness in a high-stress situation significantly improved. Their capacity is another pro, since most have 20-to-30 round magazines. And compared to a smoothbore shotgun they have far less recoil. If you own an AR-15 or other .223-chambered rifle for home defense, you’d better be spending time training for the worst-case situations, and that means ordering a large number of rounds like this 500-round box from Tula.
Training means FMJ, in part to save money, and also because if you’re hitting a range, most require FMJ rounds. These FMJ rounds are fantastic for self-defense tactical training, target practice, and plinking. They’re 62 grain which is a medium weight for the cartridge. You expect superior speed from your .223, and this ammunition has it with a muzzle velocity of 3,025 feet per second, and you know it’s going to hit with the power of a rampaging bull. Tula uses a special bi-metal layering process to create these rounds, alternating steel and copper until they have a competitively-priced steel case. They coat the case in a polymer to ensure feeding and ejecting and use boxer primer.
Tula is perhaps the longest-standing ammunition company in Russia. Their plant was founded in 1712 in Tula, Russia, and they have always taken care to utilize the most recent technology in the production of their ammunition. They’re known for producing quality target rounds at affordable prices; they understand that you’re a dedicated shooter who wants to fire a large number of rounds on a regular basis without breaking the bank. When you order this 500-round box you’re getting a piece of the venerable Tula legend – and making your rifle really happy, too.
(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.)
