This 223 Rem cartridge by Red Army Standard sports a 55 grain full metal jacket projectile. Any AR-15 connoisseur is going to know how that bullet weight performs well, and appreciates how an FMJ’s affordable design keeps their rifle’s bore cleaner over the course of their target shooting session.
Like the 7.62×39 ammo that Red Army Standard used to exclusively offer, this 223 Rem round features an economical steel casing. It’s coated in a special layer of polymer that helps a semi-automatic cycle smoothly, and which also shields the casing against moisture that could otherwise have corroded it. This cartridge is produced for Red Army Standard by Tula, which is based in Russia and has been manufacturing steel cased rounds for decades.
People would usually only consider reloading steel during an SHTF scenario. This round’s Berdan primer would make reloading an even bigger bugbear, so savor the first and only time you’ll run through this case of budget-friendly ammo! Perfect for range training or preparing for an emergency like a civil war or Packers Super Bowl victory.
