You can make a very good case that the AR-15 and other variants in 5.56x45 aren’t perfectly suited to home defense for a majority of city dwellers. You can similarly make the case that the platform is easy to remember in stressful situations (like a gun fight) and therefore offers unique training benefits to allow it to shine in home defense situations. It is also easy to argue that for those who have larger properties to defend, the 5.56 is a wonderful defensive round. Enter the frangible projectile loaded on the 5.56x45 cartridge.

This frangible projectile easily solves the overpenetration concerns that you might have with thin walls and loved ones sleeping in rooms surrounding where you might have a firefight in your home. It takes out most concerns with stopping power due to through penetration on an intruder. It improves energy dump and offers interesting wound channel effects at closer ranges.

As a load suitable for the platform, this cartridge offers very unique and significant benefits to the thought of using an AR or another 5.56 platform for home defense. This is especially true due to the high velocity, the amount of rounds and the familiarity of the guns you would be using to defend yourself. This is also a suitable cartridge for small ranges on private property where ricochet is a potential hazard. The projectile essentially breaks apart at impact and delivers it’s full payload of energy into the target.

This cartridge is a purposefully designed self-defense product, suitable for use in all 5.56x45 firearms. It is packaged as 20 rounds per box and 50 boxes per case.

A: In our opinion, a 50 grain bullet is the minimum acceptable weight for a 1:8 twist barrel to stabilize. And since a 223 Wylde is designed for 5.56x45 and 223 Rem alike, this ammo ought to function correctly in your setup.
