The LaserLyte LT-223; .223 Training Cartridge

Awesome way to cut down on ammo costs. I have used their pistol versions and they are a great way to train.


LL LT-223  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.

LL LT-223 Chamber 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.

LL TCS 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.

Yep, Ammo Prices are Still Going up

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.
