There’s no silver in a Winchester Silvertip round. Werewolf hunters – keep looking. But if you’re more concerned about your ability to hold your own against real world threats, then this American-made 223 Rem ammo offers everything you’re looking for.

This round is loaded with a 64 grain projectile. That’s on the heavy side, which gives the bullet more of the momentum it needs to penetrate soft tissue deeply. Its copper jacket is plated with nickel, which assists in reliable feeding and also protects the bullet against gradual corrosion.

At the end of the Silvertip bullet sits a very large black polymer tip. This tip’s broad base yields extremely fast and rapid expansion – precisely the terminal ballistics which neutralize a threat quickly.

This round’s heavy polymer tipped bullet has a slower muzzle velocity than what’s typical for the 223 Rem, but that doesn’t mean it’s pulling its punches. At 100 yards the bullet socks its target with over 800 ft lbs of energy, which is about 500 ft lbs more than the minimum typically recommended for self-defense.

This ammo sports high-grade reloadable brass cases, intensely trustworthy non-corrosive primers, and powder that’ll burn clean to help keep your rifle in good working order.
