Question:I have not seen Norma "Tac 223" 55gr FMJ (mostly white box) in awhile. This "Tactical" (mostly red box), which I understand is Norma brass loaded at the LC plant, is all that I've seen since around late last year.
Will the "Tac-223" version ever be coming back? Or is this "Tactical" version pretty much it going forward.
I only ask because I have seen a noticeable difference in accuracy in my particular rifle.
Response:Hello Ron, this is all the same ammo made by Lake City 223. Thank you for visiting TargetSportsUSA.com

Question:I can’t enough good things about TargetSportsUSA. I’ve been buying my ammo exclusively from them for 4 years. Always the best pricing, selection, and service. In this time of ammo panic buying and subsequent scarcity and exorbitant pricing, TSUSA notified me today of available Norma 223 ammo - priced at a crazy, fair price. They could have charged double the price. Talk about a company with integrity.

Question:Glad to buy this, but I would prefer to use .223 in my older SP1's. The "S12" marked barrels used in the 1964-1968 SP1's are pre M193 NATO adoption. It may not matter, but ....

Is this Norma ammunition, labeled 55 grain tactical 223 Rem, a SAMI spec 223 Remington loading or a CIP spec M193 5.56mm NATO loading. It's a difference of 8,000 psi which might matter in some older guns.

M193 556 NATO, 28.5-grain case capacity, max pressure 62,366 psi CIP spec
