- Q & A
This 7.62x54r ammunition was made by the legendary Tula Arms Plant. Tula was founded in 1712 by decree of Petr I, who was looking to solve the problems being caused by invading nomads. The closest arsenal was all the way in Moscow, which was much too far to travel at that time. Building an arms plant locally was a good solution – one that worked – so Tula was founded, and the rest is ammunition history. For 300 years they’ve been manufacturing ammunition that shooters all over the world turn to for affordable target practice. Don’t let price stop you from being a high-volume shooter. With Tula, you can shoot as much as you want without emptying your wallet.
These are 148 grain rounds, making them lightweight for the 7.62x54r. Being lighter means they’re capable of reaching higher speeds and also means a bit less felt recoil. This is FMJ ammunition, so it doesn’t expand on contact. Make sure you have a solid backstop in place since rifle rounds can go quite a ways without stopping, and you never know what they might run into along the way. It’s best for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. Each round leaves the barrel of your rifle at the fantastic muzzle velocity of 2785 feet per second and hits home with stunning force.
There are 20 target rounds in this single box of ammunition from Tula. It’s a great size for tucking in your pocket when you hit the range and stashing in the pockets on your range bag, but it is just 20 rounds, so you might want to buy multiple boxes. After all, your 7.62x54r-chambered rifle wants more than just a snack, it wants a substantial meal. Tula manufactures this ammunition at their longtime plant in Tula, Russia, and produces it in steel cases with berdan primer to save you money. Order now and get to honing your marksmanship skills.
(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.)
