This round has the 223’s no-nonsense 55 grain FMJ projectile. Solid lead core, solid gilding metal jacket – zero steel that could cause complications at ranges which enforce magnetic ammo bans. A toothed cannelure in its shank prevents the bullet from creeping out of its seating during recoil, and a boat tail base cuts down on the amount of drag the bullet encounters in flight. This is a 0.269 ballistic coefficient bullet, so it clings to a flat trajectory and maintains at least Mach 2 velocity beyond 300 yards.
See this ammo’s cases? They’re brand new, but they’re a little gray where heat treatment made the brass they are made from more supple and durable. This is exactly the kind of ammo you want if handloading is in your future. Non-corrosive to prevent rusting, of course, and loose-packed in one giant cardboard box. Happy shooting!
