.223 Remington ammunition was first made available to the general public in 1964 after the military realized its .222 caliber needed to be faster, more accurate, and harder-hitting. It gained popularity at light speed, and today, avid shooters such as yourself enjoy its power and punch all over the world. The most common barrel twist rate for this ammunition is 1/7 to 1/16, with a bore groove diameter of .224”. And, of course, the most common rifle is the famous AR-15.
This Wolf .223 55 grain FMJ ammunition is boxer-primed and non-corrosive with a polymer coating meant to enable flawless feeding and ejecting. At 55 grain it’s relatively light, which lends to its speed: it has a muzzle velocity of 3,241 feet per second. And, being .223, you know it hits hard: it has a muzzle energy of 1.283 foot-pounds. Wolf uses a layering process, alternating thin sheets of copper and steel to create a thin jacket to give you these steel-cased rounds, which are great for target practice and plinking.
Although these are made under the Wolf name, much of their ammunition is manufactured by the Tula Cartridge Plant in Russia. Tula has a centuries-long history of making ammunition for their military and law enforcement agencies, making them a great choice for rifle target rounds. There are 500 rounds in this box, so you’ll have enough ammunition for a solid day of practice or destroying cans. Of course, having a good ammo stash is important, too, so why not order an extra box for a rainy day?
If you are a Wolf ammo fan and want more than 500 rounds, we also offer the 1,000 round case of this 223 ammo.
(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.)
