Out of Stock

Ammo Overview

Bullets - 55 Grain Frangible
Quantity - 50 rounds per box
Manufacturer - Black Hills
Casings - Boxer-primed brass


This .223 Remington ammunition from Black Hills Ammunition serves well in a variety of roles from steel target shooting to home defense to varmint hunting. These cartridge fire Barnes Multi-Purpose Green bullets, which consist of a frangible copper-tin core with a conventional jacket. Upon contact with a hard surface, the jacket and core break apart into powder and fragments, minimizing the risk of overpenetration or ricochets but delivering strong terminal performance on the intended target. This ammo is lead-free and can be used in jurisdictions that prohibit the use of leaded bullets.

Each cartridge in this box of 50 propels a 55 grain Barnes MPG at a muzzle velocity of 3,150 feet per second. This bullet weight is typical for .223 Rem/5.56 NATO and compatible with the vast majority of AR-15s.

Black Hills Ammunition is a reputable manufacturer of ammunition for military, law enforcement, and competitive use. Their ammo is loaded in Rapid City, South Dakota using non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass; Barnes bullets are made in Mona, Utah.

A: Hi Steve! This is new production ammo. If you've noticed any discoloration around the case neck and shoulder, that's just evidence that it was annealed during production. Annealing is a heat-treating process that makes the brass more supple, which enables it to more reliably expand to seal the chamber during ignition. Most brass cases are annealed, although it's usually buffed out for cosmetic purposes.
