Whether you want to take full advantage of your skills and equipment to win a grueling competition or just want to make one very ragged hole in a paper target, Federal Premium Ammunition’s match-grade cartridges will not disappoint. Made to precise standards for pinpoint accuracy, these .223 Remington rounds use the famous Sierra MatchKing 69 grain boat tailed hollow point and achieve a muzzle velocity of 2950 feet per second. Each box holds 20 rounds in Boxer-primed reloadable brass casings.

Federal’s match-grade ammunition has helped many a champion shooter triumph against skilled competition. The company’s expertise in producing high quality .223/5.56 ammo is such that it was selected by the US military to produce ammunition at the Lake City government arsenal in Missouri. Production at Lake City complements Federal’s own assembly lines at its home plant in Anoka, Minnesota, where the company creates some of the world’s best self-defense, hunting, and target cartridges.

A: For this 69 grain bullet, I would consider either a 1/9 or 1/7 twist rate, including your 16" barrel. The 1/9 barrel will accurately handle all popular bullet grains on the market. If you are considering anything 70 grain or higher, a 1/7 twist rate should be used. Since a majority of the .223 and 5.56 ammo made is either 55 or 62 grain, a 1/9 barrel is ideal.

A: No, this round is too long for use in a 1/12 twist upper. You might consider Hornady 52gr BTHP ammo.
