The .223 Remington was designed in 1964 by Remington – of course. It was made specifically to fit the chamber of the M16, and its design puts it squarely between its predecessors, the .222 Remington and .222 Remington Magnum. Although the cartridge was originally made for the military, the AR-15 came out not long after its creation, and it quickly became one of the most popular rifle rounds in the industry. There are two basic types of rifles chambered in .223: first, the varmint rifle, mostly bolt-action rifles with a 1 in 12 rifling twist, and, second, semi-auto’s like the AR-15 with twist rates of 1 in 7, 1 in 8, and 1 in 9. The semi-auto .223’s are enormously popular in law enforcement as well as for civilian use, and if you own one you know they’re hungry guns.
At 62 grain these are medium-weight for the .223, but still fairly light overall. Their weight makes them capable of reaching impressive speeds while also able to blow a major hole in your intended target. They’re HP’s and expand on impact, slowing down at the same time so they create a catastrophic wound track, which is a must for a clean kill if you’re hunting. In addition to hunting they’re great for home defense and can also be used for target practice. According to Tula this ammunition has a muzzle velocity of 3025 feet per second.
There are 500 HP rounds in this box of ammunition. They’re manufactured by Tula, an established plant in Tula, Russia, with a 300-year history. When Tula was founded in 1712 their goal was simply to supply their own town with the means to protect themselves, but as the decades passed they began to expand. Today they manufacture firearms and ammunition and distribute them globally. They may have started small, but they’ve become a giant in the industry. If you have a .223, don’t let it go hungry. Thanks to Tula you can keep it well fed without draining your bank account, so get your order in for this 500-round box and feed your gun!
(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.)
