Is the .223 Remington the king of all varmint calibers? Probably not. But is the Swiss Army Knife the king of all meat cleavers? Of course not! It happens to do a whole lot of things fairly well even though you’d never choose it to chop up a side of beef. The analogy extends to the .223. Cost effective, capable, and really easy to find in terms of ammunition availability and firearm variety, the .223 Remington might just be the king of small-caliber versatility.
Since you can buy an AR-pattern rifle just about any way you can possibly imagine, the possibilities are endless for this classic cartridge. With a 20” barrel it is a very acceptable medium-range varmint gun, and this is made even more so when you compare ammunition availability and cost to the other .22 centerfire calibers. Also, it is easy to find very accurate sharpshooting bolt guns in .223 from all of the big manufacturers which really helps keep the cost down in practicing long range shooting.
Aguila 55 grain FMJ is just the right type of ammunition to keep on hand to feed pretty much any gun you have in .223. The 55 grain projectile is the stereotypical weight for the bullet so it works well in most barrel twists, and it is pretty well unmatched in cost.
You aren’t likely to find a much better deal to feed your .223 arsenal (we probably all have an arsenal in this caliber) so stop looking are snatch these up now. There is nothing to regret here; buy big boxes of .223, shoot them, rinse, repeat.
