Awesome way to cut down on ammo costs. I have used their pistol versions and they are a great way to train.
LaserLyte®, innovators in firearms laser technologies, are proud to announce the most highly anticipated addition to the LaserLyte® family of laser training cartridges; the LT-223, .223 Caliber Training Cartridge. The in-the-chamber design of the LT-223 allows the user to realistically train anywhere and practice tap, rack, bang or malfunction drills in the comfort of one’s own home.
The LT-223 fits inside the cartridge chamber and features a firing-pin activated switch that indicates bullet impact with a bright red laser dot. A built-in snap cap protects the firing pin and O-rings hold the laser accurately in place allowing for repeated dry fire practice without compromising accuracy. The rim-less cartridge trainer also allows for constant racking without unintentional ejection.
The LT-223 Training Cartridge is LaserLyte® Trainer Target compatible. Incorporating the LaserLyte® TLB-1 system into any training practice provides the user with an interactive, low-cost training tool for unsighted fire, accuracy, grouping and trigger control.
The LaserLyte® LT-223 is the foundation training cartridge for an array of new Training Cartridge Sleeves for many popular hunting calibers. The LaserLyte® Training Cartridges in the new rifle calibers give young and first-time shooters the opportunity to practice the fundamentals, as well as, refine trigger control skills for shooters of all levels. The rimmed sleeves are made of solid brass and work perfectly in all bolt-action rifles. The LT-223, in combination with any of the new Training Cartridge Sleeves and the LaserLyte® Trainer Target, can improve the success of any hunt or target shoot with realistic, anytime-anyplace, affordable training.

You might remember the Paratus 16 rifle that I mentioned the other day…. Well, I stumbled upon this kit today that gives you all the packable goodness of that $5,000 .308, but for a much affordable $1,300 (with Pelican Case – $1,175 with leather case) and 5.56 caliber. TAC2 AR15 Discreet Carry Kit
Stopped by the local Walmarts (not associated with Gunmart) the other day, and I noticed that prices are going up yet again. I now make it a point to pick up a couple boxes of .223 if they have them in stock… as of recent, they have not had any, and what they have had has been getting more and more expensive. I paid $6.97 for a box of 20 55 gr Federal American Eagle .223 FMJ. Thats up about 25 cents from last time I saw it, and up about a buck from a while back.
Oh BTW, I saw the other day that they are now offering this stuff in 50 gr with a polymer tip. Interesting.

I mentioned this new product the other day on the Twitter Net and the Facebooks…. here is a great review of the new product in .308. It will also be available in .223. The .223 will use a 64 grain bullet with a muzzle velocity of 3020 fps. The .308 load will use a 150 grain bullet with a velocity of 2810 fps. And yeah… apparently it does work:

The EMAG (Export MAGazine) is a lightweight 30-round 5.56×45 NATO polymer magazine that features a number of aesthetic and functional changes from the original PMAG®. While EMAG remains 100% compatible with the AR15/M16 platform, its unique geometry is optimized for foreign-made weapons such as the HK 416, British SA-80, Beretta ARX-160, IMI Tavor, and others.
To enhance compatibility with double and triple magazine pouches as well as aftermarket mag couplers, the EMAG features a slim, rib-less, anti-snag profile. Front-to-back and side-to-side dimensions have been adjusted to ensure compatibility with as many ‘Draft STANAG 4179′ compliant weapons as possible, including most non Colt-spec AR15 rifles.
EMAG features the same pop-off Impact/Dust Cover as the PMAG to prevent dirt and debris intrusion and protect the feedlips from impact damage during storage. When not in use, the Impact/Dust Cover can be stored on the magazine’s floorplate to prevent possible loss.
For easy and accurate identification of loaded round count via the large, dual-sided MagLevel windows, the stainless steel magazine spring is coated with mil-spec black oxide and the indicator coil painted with a high visibility orange color. Numerical indicators are added to the body to identify 5, 15, and 25 loaded rounds.
Made in U.S.A.

has a great indepth review posted up over at his place…. including pics, video, and a 520 yard shot on a varmint. Nice!
Reliability is 100% after well over 1000 rounds it eats EVERYTHING I throw at it (…) Not to mention it’s not finicky with certain magazines either. Standard GI mags are awesome, as are Pmags, Thermalite, and the stock 5 rounder. In short I love my Remington R-15 so much it’s become one of my non negotiable guns. I won’t sell it, trade it, or ditch it for any reason.
