Century Arms unveiled a new set of ammunition Tuesday, launching the Red Army Standard .223 FMJBT ammo.

The latest addition to the Red Army Standard brand, the .223 offering boasts a boat tail bullet designed for better accuracy. The ammunition also features a sealed neck and primer to resist environmental and weather factors.

Manufactured in Russia at the same facility as its sister ammo, the 7.62×39 FMJBT, the Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail ammunition in .223 touts a 56-grain bullet with bimetal jacket and lead core. Using non-corrosive primers and a lacquered steel case, the ammunition delivers an affordable option for .223/5.56 chambered firearms, according to Century Arms.

“Building upon the success of our 7.62×39 FMJBT offering with a sealed neck and sealed primer, we wanted to offer similar features in the .223 cartridge”, said William Sucher the company’s VP of Business Development, in a news release. “Unfortunately due to capacity limitations, this will only be available in limited quantities, but we are excited to be able to get back into the .223 market.”

The .223 Red Army Standard FMJBT is available in 20 round boxes at $5 each or 1,000 round cases with MSRP at $249 per case.
