Availability: Out of stock
The .223 Remington was put on the market in 1964. Its parent cartridge was the .222 Remington, and its ballistic performance puts it right between the .222 Remington and the .222 Remington Magnum. One common point of confusion with the .223 Remington is its similarity to the 5.56 NATO, but although they appear identical, they do have differences. The 5.56 NATO is loaded to a significantly higher internal pressure, for one thing, and not all internal measurements are the same, either. The .223 Remington was designed according to the following specifications:
- Bullet diameter: .224 in.
- Neck diameter: .253 in.
- Shoulder diameter: .354 in.
- Base diameter: .376 in.
- Rim diameter: .378 in.
- Rim thickness: .045 in.
- Case length: 1.76 in.
- Overall length: 2.26 in.
- Primer type: small rifle
- Maximum pressure (SAAMI): 55,000 psi
- Maximum pressure (CIP): 62,366 psi
- Maximum CUP: 52000 CUP
These are lightweight 55 grain rounds. They’re FMJ and don’t expand on impact, making them ideal for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 3241 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1283 foot-pounds. The cases for this ammunition are made using a unique bimetal layering process where copper and steel are alternated in thin layers until the steel case is formed, and the finished product is coated in a special polymer for dependable cycling. Berdan primer is used for reliable ignition and also to extend their shelf-life.
You get 20 target rounds in this box. This ammunition is made by Wolf, a company that is a subsidiary of the legendary Tula factory in Tula, Russia. Tula was founded in 1712 when a decree was issued for an ammunition plant to be built in order to keep the locals supplied with the means with which to defend themselves from invading nomads. Today they distribute their products on a worldwide level. It shouldn’t drain your bank account to feed your rifle. Order these Tula target rounds and go blow away some stationary targets.
(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.)
