Out of Stock

Ammo Overview

Ammo Quantity – 20 rounds per box
Ammo Manufacturer – Hornady
Projectiles - 55 grain polymer tipped
Ammo Casing - Boxer-primed nickel-plated brass


For shooters sporting their AR-15 rifles for self-defense, Hornady Critical Defense is a fantastic and effective ammo choice. Hornady recently added rifle calibers to their Critical Defense line, and this .223 Rem ammo has all of the right components to make it a premium self-protection round.

Nickel-plated brass casings, 55gr polymer tipped projectiles with their well known FTX bullet, and low-flash powders make up this .223 Rem ammo. The polymer tipped projectile facilitates stable flight patterns, high BC, and intense penetration. This .223 ammo packs a serious punch with a muzzle velocity and energy at approximately 3240 fps and 1282 ft/lbs. respectively. The nickel-plated brass casings are reloadable, and their smooth functioning in the chamber should give you peace of mind that your ammo will perform when the stakes are high. The casings are non-corrosive and reloadable.

You really can't go wrong with Hornady Critical Defense. Buy a few 20-round boxes and see for yourself. Order today!
