When a cartridge’s casing is made of steel, you know it’s going to be a steal! This 223 Rem cartridge from Century Arms’ Red Army Standard line of ammunition features the copper-free casing that makes high volume shooting more accessible to those of us who aren’t burdened by big wads of dough. Century imports this ammo from Russia, where it is made by the steel casing authority Tula.
This round also features a Berdan primer, a reliable little explosive device yet one which makes reloading all the less worthwhile. This round’s casing is coated in a thin layer of polymer that not only promotes seamless cycling through a semi-automatic, but also guards it against rust.
This round’s 55 grain full metal jacket bullet suits it perfectly for the range. You’re not paying for any fancy features that accentuate stopping power, just a traditional lead core and gilding metal jacket that provide good accuracy, reliable feeding, and less barrel fouling over the course of your day at the range. Buy a case just in case!
