The Tula Arms Plant was founded in 1712 after Tsar Peter I of Russia decided it was in the best interest of the populace to have a local ammunition manufacturer. Tula is a public-limited company that has not only survived but flourished through the many changes in the firearms world over the past 300 years. Although they started small, supplying ammo for local protection needs, they quickly moved on to supplying the Russian Army, producing artistically-decorated weapons, and leading the way in the production of various guns including an improved bolt action for the Berdan rifle and the creation of the SVT-38 sniper rifle. Although they’re best known for their economically-priced ammunition, they do much more than that.
These .223 rounds are fairly light at 62 grain, but of course that means they fly down-range fast. They’re FMJ’s specifically designed for target practice, tactical training, and plinking; if you want to get some solid training hours in without emptying your wallet, this ammunition has you covered (and your gun loaded). This ammunition flies from the barrel of your rifle at the stunning muzzle velocity of 3025 feet per second and hammers home with a sizeable impact. Tula uses a unique layering process, alternating copper and steel, to produce these steel cases, and coats the finished rounds with a polymer for consistent cycling. These rounds are Berdan primed.
There are 1000 target rounds in this case of ammunition. You’ll burn through the entire case in record time, so don’t think for a second you don’t need this many rounds. Your gun will thank you for such a hearty meal and you’ll have a blast – literally – spending so much time shooting your favorite rifle. Just think of all the things you can practice with this much ammunition: shooting from standing, kneeling, and prone positions, shot placement, grouping, the list goes on. You don’t get to be a better shooter without firing a lot of ammunition, so if you want to improve your marksmanship skills, you want this ammo.
(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.)
