- Q & A
In 1712 Peter I ordered the building of an ammunition factory in the tiny town of Tula, Russia. The local citizenry had been under threat of attack by invading nomads for some time, and the nearest arsenal was located in Moscow, which was much too far to be of any help in those days. With the building of the Tula Arms Plant the locals were protected, and a legendary company was created. Over the years Tula has made everything from swords to guns to ammunition, and they’ve gained an impressive reputation. Today they’re known for producing economically priced rounds, enabling shooters to shoot at high volumes without emptying their banks accounts.
These particular Tula rounds are made for your 7.62x54r-chambered rifle. At 200 grain these are relatively heavy rounds capable of creating a big hole in targets and delivering immense stopping power. These are Soft Point, or SP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. SPs expand more slowly than HPs, allowing them to penetrate more fully and create a larger wound cavity. SPs can also be used in areas where HPs are banned. This ammunition is great for hunting game up to the size of whitetail deer and is also good for target practice.
When you order this box of ammunition from Wolf, which is a subsidiary of Tula, you get 20 rounds. That’s just enough to head out on a hunt, so if you want to make sure you have enough ammunition to zero your optics, fire some practice shots down-range, and still have enough to hunt, you might want to order more than one box. Remember, it’s an absolute must to zero optics using the ammunition you hunt with, because weight and propellants vary by brand and can easily change your zero. This ammunition is manufactured by Tula at their factory in Tula, Russia. Order now and spend some quality time with your 7.62x54r.
