The .223 Remington round hit the market in 1964, and pretty much as long as it’s been around there has been some confusion about its similarities to the 5.56x45mm round. Although the .223 Remington is externally quite similar to the 5.56, there are internal differences that matter. The 5.56 is loaded to a higher internal pressure than the .223, so it’s literally going to put more pressure on your gun when you squeeze the trigger. On top of that the throat of the 5.56 is longer than the .223. So while you can fire .223 rounds through a rifle chambered in 5.56, it’s inadvisable to do the opposite. If your gun is chambered in .223 it may not be able to tolerate the greater pressures of the 5.56 round.

These .223 rounds are made by the legendary Hornady company. Hornady was founded in 1948 by Joyce Hornady, who coined the phrase “ten rounds through one hole.” Joyce Hornady’s dedication or precision and performance lives on today, more than 60 years later. Hornady has a stellar reputation in the industry, and for good reason. Their ammunition is manufactured using only high-quality components and undergoes rigorous testing and quality control measures, so you can be sure you’re feeding your gun ammo that’s actually good for it – and yes, it does matter.

These are lightweight 55 grain rounds. They’re Hollow Point (HP) and begin to expand the moment they impact your target, decelerating as they expand to create a catastrophic wound channel. Each round moves at a muzzle velocity of 3240 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1282 foot-pounds. This is Hornady’s Steel Match ammunition and is steel-cased and berdan primed and meets IDPA and IPSC criteria. This ammunition is great for target practice and varmint control. There are 50 rounds in this single box. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their plant in Grand Island, Nebraska. Place your order today and spend some time honing your marksmanship skills.
