Federal loads this round with their 55 grain full metal jacket boat tail projectile. It’s first and foremost a target shooting bullet, with the smooth jacket it needs to feed reliably and a boat tail to cut down on in-flight drag. Its toothed cannelure helps the bullet remain seated at the optimal depth in its case. This bullet does pack a considerable punch, of course, and the FMJ’s tendency to burst into fragments as it pierces soft tissue makes its terminal effect unpleasant to say the least.
Federal’s 223 Rem is non-magnetic, non-corrosive and reloadable. Its brass cases only look a little ugly because they weren’t buffed up after they were heat treated, but to be sure they have never before seen the light of day!
