This AR-15 round is for killing varmints. No questions asked. It’s built for blazing fast speed, devastating impact on target and wind shedding flight.
The Federal Premium round utilizing the 40 grain Nosler Ballistic tip projectile is a very solid take on the varmint round with an almost unheard of velocity of 3700 out of a factory .223 load with a respectable 1215 ft. Lbs. of energy delivered at the muzzle. The ability to know that you can take small targets at 200-400 yards with relative ease is what makes this so worth the price premium that Federal has priced in for such a good collaboration of components.
Suitable for medium predatory animals too, this is a devastating round for ridding your farm or local wilderness of nuisance animals. Perhaps that’s what makes varmint hunting so fun: the ability to watch the nuisance population go down visibly because of well placed shots at distances you normally wouldn’t even consider, all the while, knowing that the super fast, super flat shooting projectile is otherwise, just a tiny little bullet.
This is a specialty round that is suitable for all rifles but is especially well suited for twist rates of 1 in 10 or longer. The blistering performance makes it a fun to shoot, low recoil round for your high powered rifles.
