Some experienced shooters use their .223’s for hunting, and if you live in a state where it is allowed, it’s definitely something to consider. As with any round, it’s all about shot placement, because although the .223 is not recommended for truly big game, it’s been done. .223 is typically used for game such as deer, elk, and the occasional feral hog, but there are those who have used it to fell – believe it or not – elephants. Of course, that requires a massive amount of finesse and talent, but large game like whitetail deer are certainly within the realm of possibility. Some hunters like the .223 for its cost while others are simply more comfortable with their AR’s, but whatever your reason, make sure you’ve got the right ammo.
This is Hollow Point ammunition, so it’s capable of rapid energy transfer on impact and begins to expand the moment it hits your target. With that expansion is deceleration, which is important because it both allows for a larger, more catastrophic wound channel and protects innocent bystanders. Hunting with a FMJ round can easily result in over-penetration; the projectile could simply pass right through, not stopping until it hits something else, anything – or anyone – else. FMJ’s are also poor for hunting because they deliver a simple through-and-through rather than the massive wound channel of an HP, so you’re far more likely to simply wound the animal than get a clean kill.
At 62 grain these are rather lightweight rounds. They’re HP’s and can be used for hunting, self-defense, or target practice. These rounds have incredible speed with a muzzle velocity of 3025 feet per second. There are 1000 rounds in this box. Tula uses a unique bi-metal layering process, alternating copper and steel to create these steel cases, which they then coat with a special polymer for reliable cycling. Tula was founded in 1712 and their plant is located in Tula, Russia. They have a reputation for producing competitively-priced ammunition; if you want to feed your gun without going broke, buy Tula.
