The .223 Remington round has been around for more than fifty years now and has gained quite a bit of popularity thanks to the AR-15. It’s a truly versatile round having uses from hunting to plinking to home defense; if you use your AR-15 for home defense, you need high-quality expanding rounds. Using target rounds in your home against an attacker could easily result in a round blowing right through a door or wall and hitting an innocent bystander on the other side. With top-of-the-line defense rounds your AR-15 makes a great home defense weapon.
These .223 rounds are a lightweight 55 grain and will fly to your target in record time. These are Hornady TAP FPD rounds, and not only do they mushroom on impact but they have a number of other key self-defense features. Features include propellants being designed to reduce muzzle flash and preserve your night vision and cases being nickel-plated so you can see them more easily in dim light. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 3240 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1282 foot-pounds. These are excellent defense rounds.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Hornady you get 200 rounds, so you’re going to have enough for a few mags at the ready for home defense as well as extra for range time. Defense rounds have more power than target rounds so you need to train with your chosen defense rounds to ensure the greatest possible accuracy should you need to defend yourself.
