If you buy two cans, it is $129.95 a can. That is very cheap.
The only drawback is the lacquer-coated steel cases. If you are shooting a semi-automatic and it gets hot, that lacquer is like a glue inside your gun. It is difficult to clean out. Some guns can shoot the Russian ammunition and some will jam.
But at that price, it is great for practice or shooting varmints. Just find a gun that likes that ammo, like an AK-47.
Here is .223 Russian-made TulAmmo. It is 500 rounds of 62-grain hollow points for about $110. That other ammo was full-metal jacketed bullets, which is required in the military to comply with the Geneva Convention.
Here is .223 from Silver Bear, which I believe is also Russian-made. It is 500 rounds of 55-grain hollow points for about $130, and they are zinc-plated steel cases. They don't jam as much.
Here is what you should use if you use a .223 to hunt deer. It is about $18 for a 20-round box, but hopefully you only have to use one round. It states they recommend this round for mule deer and black bear, which I think is pushing it.
