In 1954 a small company named Armalite was founded in Geneseo, Illinois, for the purpose of using the latest, greatest technological advances in materials to create lighter-weight, improved weapons. They had a slow start, although the AR-5 and AR-7 did see some use; those rifles lead to an offer from the U.S. Military to create a new combat rifle. Although their resulting AR-10 did not win the contract, it was their first somewhat successful firearm. Realizing they might be on to something, they made a smaller, lighter version of the AR-10, the AR-15. But the Army brass didn’t like the AR-15, either, and, thinking they’d had another failure, ArmaLite sold the design to Colt. As you know, with the help of Colt the AR-15 became wildly popular and is probably the very gun you’ve got in your safe right this moment.
Your ArmaLite Rifle – because that’s what the “AR” actually stands for – chambered in .223 Remington probably has a big appetite. And as the owner of an AR-15, it’s safe to say your favorite thing to do is probably hitting the range and heating up your rifle with more than a few mags loaded with target ammo. These .223 rounds are fairly lightweight at 62 grain. They’re Hollow Point rounds and simultaneously expand and decelerate immediately upon impact, creating a massive wound channel; their deceleration also prevents over-penetration, which protects innocent bystanders. Each rounds has a fantastic muzzle velocity of 3025 feet per second.
There are a mind-blowing 1000 rounds in this box. As HP’s they can be used for home defense, hunting game such as whitetail deer, and, of course, target practice. This ammunition is made by the legendary Tula Arms Plant, which is located in Tula, Russia. Tula was founded in 1712 by degree of Tsar Peter I of Russia and for more than 3 centuries has been considered a leader in the industry. They use their own unique bimetal layering process to create the steel cases used for these rounds and coat the completed rounds in a polymer for consistent cycling. If you own a rifle chambered in .223 and want to sling lead down-range until the sun sets and you’re forced to head home, place your order without delay.
(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.)
