223 Bullets (.224 diameter)

Shop 223 Bullets for Reloading Below

The products and packages you see on this page are .224" bullets only - just the projectile. For loaded ammo ready to fire in your rifle, please see our 223 ammo page.

If a cartridge is going to become very popular, it could receive few greater blessings than adoption by the United States Armed Forces. Case in point: The 223 Rem, which was adopted alongside the M16 rifle in 1964. The cartridge would later evolve into the 5.56x45 which shares identical physical dimensions as well as the same .224 diameter bullet.

You can break down .223 bullets for reloading into four major categories. Very light bullets in the 40 grain range permit extra fast muzzle velocities, ideal for when a flat trajectory followed by a shallow wound channel are desired for varmint hunting. 55 grain bullets are essentially the standard weight and best for when you want performance like the U.S. Army’s M193. 62 grain bullets may include a seven grain steel penetrator tip, but even without them they perform ballistically like the U.S. Army’s M855. Finally come the heavyweights at 70, 77 and 90 grains. These bullets possess extra mass that gives them greater momentum downrange, key for long distance shooting where wind drift enters heavily into the equation.

Heavier bullets demand faster barrel twists to best benefit accuracy. A 1:12 twist will adequately stabilize 55 grain .223 bullets, but a twist as fast as 1:7 is ideal for bullets 70 grains and heavier.

The 223 Rem and its higher pressure variant the 5.56x45 are the kings of the American rifle range. FMJ and FMJBT bullets are optimal for affordable high volume shooting, and deliver the requisite accuracy for effective training and satisfying plinking. V-MAX and other polymer tip bullets deliver the expanding terminal performance that hunting and personal protection call for. And when you’re trying to hit the most distant targets, the superior ballistic coefficient of the HPBT will serve you particularly well.

    Bullet Type Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail (FMJ-BT)
    Manufacturer Armscor
    Manufacturer SKU 52344

    Armscor got their humble start as a printshop and sporting goods store in Manila all the way back in 1905. In the past few decades they’ve made a big name for themself in America thanks to their Rock Island Armory 1911 pattern pistols, but their ammo has plenty of its own fans as well. Here’s your chance to load the same bullets as Armscor to make your own 223 Rem/5.56x45 ammo!

    This case contains 4,000 55 grain FMJBT bullets. Each .224” diameter bullet is hardened by a gilding metal jacket for certain feeding in a semi-auto, and sports a cannelure to facilitate proper crimping. Armscor’s bullet components possess the uniform weight distribution that tight groupings can’t exist without. These bullets’ boat tails not only improve their ballistic coefficient, but also make them easier to seat in the case. Make your own M193 rounds, or get more inventive if you like. You’ll have plenty of room to experiment with 4,000 bullets for handloading!

    Please note: These are bullets only, not loaded ammunition! Unless you know how to load your own ammunition, you will be unable to do anything with these bullets except regret ordering them.

    Good bullets when great price during ammopocalypse

    These are great plinking projectiles. I've loaded these many times. You probably have to if you've ever purchased cheap projectiles at your local reloading store. Props to Wideners for not gouging like most other stores are. Extremely fast shipping. Ordered them Wednesday and got them on Friday.

    I was looking for reloading components and found these and ordered them right away. I went back the next day to buy more but they were out of stock. A great price and fast shipping. If they are ever back in stock I will get more. Now where's the primers?

    Awesome Supplier

    Impeccable service. I ordered these bullets sight unseen for plinking and I got them in a few days. I cannot comment on the characteristics of them because I am primer less, but hopefully that will change soon but who knows. Considering the state we find ourselves in when it comes to reloading supplies, I wish I would have doubled my order.

  2. Armscor .224 Diameter Bullets - 62 Grain FMJ – 4000 Count (Not Ammo)


    In stock

    Cost Per Bullet 7.5¢ per bullet
    Bullet Weight 62 Grain
    Bullet Caliber 22-250, 220 Swift, 222 Rem, 222 Rem Mag, 223 Rem, 5.56x45mm
    Quantity 4000
    Bullet Type Full Metal Jacket (FMJ)
    Manufacturer Armscor
    Manufacturer SKU 52345

    This is not loaded ammunition.

    A handloader always enjoys a little leeway when it comes to their cases. You can either scavenge discarded brass at the range, or you can order sparkling new brass online (preferably from Widener’s). But no one reloads bullets after they’ve already been fired. They’d be too hard to find, for starters.

    Armscor helps handloaders cope with this bitter truth by offering this ponderous box of 4,000 .224 diameter bullets. They are straightforward FMJs, with solid lead cores and copper alloy jackets like you’d find in any M193 bullets.

    But at 62 grains, these bullets’ weight gives them in-flight ballistic performance comparable to the M855. They don’t have steel cores that could create sparks or damage range equipment, though, so no range ought to take issue if you want to fire these nonmagnetic bullets on their premises.

    Armscor is an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer based in the Philippines, and we receive mostly positive reviews on their component bullets. All in all a great way to load a huge passel o’ 223/5.56. Better go warm up the Lee, because we ship fast!

    Customer Reviews

    Nice product, but I found it to be incorrectly labled

    I bought these to share with fellow reloaders. Had trouble dividing up the bulk product by weight. After checking a random sample more carefully I found the bullets were at 63 gr. NOT 62. It makes no for what I want to use them for, but now the bulk weight and quantity made more sense, and worked out correctly.

    Bullet Type Full Metal Jacket (FMJ)
    Manufacturer Magtech

    This is not loaded ammunition. These are component bullets and cannot be fired as-is. Please only order them if you are handloader (or need a good gift for a handloader).

    Since their foundation in 1990, Magtech has become one of the world’s largest ammunition brands. It sure doesn’t hurt that they’re the flagship label of the CBC Group, which also owns Sellier & Bellot and Metallwerk Elisenhütte Nassau.

    The Brazilian giant doesn’t load all of their bullets, however. They bundled up 1,000 of their freshly minted .224” diameter projectiles for the discerning handloader who’s stocking up components for 5.56x45, 223 Rem, or one of several other rifle cartridges.

    This is the basic, plain FMJ you want for your next 1,000 range loads. Magtech fits a concentric gilding metal jacket around a solid lead core so you can enjoy consistent target-grade accuracy the next time you aim your AR-15. Or load these bullets if you want to bulk up your self-defense cache!

    Customer Reviews

    Very satisfied AGAIN.

    I am a repeat customer. The Magtech bullets were great quality and price. Very please with purchase.

    Review by Down Town Texas (Posted on 8/7/2022)

    Just Not Accurate

    Got 1000, tried 3 powders, 2 guns, 12 different loads, fired 100 and couldn't get better than 2.5 inch groups at 100yds and that was the best. The Hornadys I tried along side were night and day better at just slightly more cost. I guess I'll bang steel close in with these.

    Review by KB from VT (Posted on 7/1/2022)


    These are great for plinking rounds. Weights are consistent and they are uniform consistently. Did not have a bad one in the entire lot.

    Review by RED (Posted on 5/23/2022)

    Fast shipment and accurate order delivered.

    Very easy to process order and delivery of product was a day sooner than indicated. Many customers trying to keep this site a secret so they can enjoy for themselves. Hard to keep a good company from getting popular.

    Review by Self sufficient (Posted on 5/6/2022)

    Bullets look excellent.

    I can't tell the difference between these bullets and the Hornady bullets.

    Review by Rey (Posted on 5/3/2022)

    Good uniform bullets, load nice in my Dillon Rl550b price ,

    For plinking and general range use, for varmint, for plain good accuracy. Consistent weight, hell what’s not to like? I’ll be buying more for sure. The price is great too!

    Good bullets at a good price

    Only shot about 200 so far, but they are as accurate as any other bullet I have used out of my 5.56. Came packaged in 100 round zip lock bags, which I thought was a nice touch. Would highly recommend, at least out to 200 yards. I haven’t shot them for longer distances yet.

    Review by Scubadude (Posted on 12/26/2021)

    Great option for range ammo.

    I loaded these bullets into once-fired brass and they loaded consistently on the bench and performed well on the range. I thought they were well priced (considering current market pricing) and a good value as measured against performance. They were the least expensive bullet I found at the time of my search. I bought 1,000 of them, loaded them up, and have fired about 200 of them. Again, a good performer in my M4. I would definitely buy again.

    Good Bullet, Minor Comments

    Loaded nicely, seems accurate. The only improvement I would suggest is to provide 5 extra or so for testing, the count was exactly 1,000. Also I wish they were boat tail, but I know that going in, that didn't cause any issue loading just a tad more attention required on my part. Overall I am very pleased!

    Review by Johnnie (Posted on 2/24/2021)

    Great product

    Arrived timely, was exactly what I wanted. Loaded bulk .223... smooth cycling bullets in all my rifles. Nice small softpoint bullet that doesn’t gum up the feed ramps with lead. Expands as expected, loaded with H322 for a crisp 3100fps and all is well. I highly recommend these bullets.

    Review by Craig (Posted on 10/7/2020)

    Accurate as hell.

    The weights on these are very consistent, and my groups were tight. I did have one round hang up and push the bullet head back into the brass, but this could easily be magazine related.

    bullets gave excellent groups out to 200 and 250 yards, they shot better then other brand of the same price.

    I bought these bullets because they were on special, I do not regret buying them, they impressed me after shooting them, with different loads out of 3 AR's, I usually purchase inexpensive bullets for paper punching and varmit hunting and I have a large array. I did not give them five stars because I have other better shooting bullets, but I will buy again. These are great for the price and my purpose.

    Bullet Type Total Metal Jacket (TMJ)

    Manufacturer SKU 22455TMJ

    An artist with a reloading press can make many masterpieces with a case of Speer’s .224 diameter bullets. There’s the 223/5.56 classic, of course, but also the 22-250, the 222 Rem, and the 223 WSSM. Which round will you put your special touch on?

    Better yet, these happen to be exceptionally high quality .224 diameter bullets for reloading. At 55 grains they can easily offer up ballistics like the M193, and with their total metal jackets they offer several unique benefits to performance.

    A TMJ’s jacket totally encompasses the bullet – including the base of the core. That improves accuracy by preventing the base of the bullet from warping during ignition. It makes for a cleaner barrel, as no lead will evaporate during ignition to stick to the rifling. It even makes for a healthier shooter, especially if they’re shooting indoors where lead vapors could have lingered around in the air.

    Speer utilizes an electrochemical process to yield highly concentric and balanced jackets. They carefully control for bullet weight, and ensure each projectile totals .725” long. Speer is so confident in this bullet that they bill it as ideal for competitive shooting!

    Hey! Please make sure you don’t expect loaded ammunition when you order this case of component bullets. You can not fire these bullets right out of the box – they are for loading your own ammo at home!

    Customer Reviews

    Great plinking bullets.

    Bought these to learn how to reload and plink with my Mini Ranch. Great value for the money, but beside that, .223 Remington is pretty hard to find anywhere. I bought 2000, so when I run out, I'll be back.

    An extremely well made bullet

    Speer has always had an excellent reputation for quality in bullets, and this is proof. You will not be disappopinted should you want to buy some for your own reloading. I am glad that they packed them in small boxes of 100 so the weight doesn't damage their fine finish.

    Please note: This is not loaded ammunition. These are component bullets for handloading. You can not fire them straight out of the box.

    Don’t settle for a full metal jacket when you could have a total metal jacket. This .224” diameter bullet by Speer is 100 percent jacketed in copper, which means it doesn’t leave the lead in its core exposed to hot propellant gasses during ignition.

    A TMJ offers three unique benefits that a FMJ does not. It prevents ignition from deforming its base, thus keeping its streamlined profile intact. It prevents ignition from evaporating the lead in its core, which will keep your breathing space a lot less toxic. It furthermore prevents lead residue from accumulating in the barrel, so you can enjoy greater accuracy throughout the duration of your target shooting session!

    At 0.725” long, this 55 grain bullet makes a swell choice for loading 223 Rem, 5.56x45, and a variety of other rifle cartridges. Great for competition as well as plain old plinking when no one’s looking!

    Looked around a bit, Ammo and supplies are getting harder to find. Ordered the .224 55 grain speer bullets from you all, they were in stock and arrived in really good time. Appreciate you having a stock.

    Review by Brett (Posted on 3/1/2021)

    Great quality.

    It was great finding these bullets in a time when reloading is the only way of finding ammo in shortage. Will be buying other caliburs as they become abailable.

    Manufacturer SKU 22475TMJ

    Want to load the kind of 223 Rem ammo that you can use to truly impress competition judges – or trim the eyelashes off a hare at several hundred yards? Speer’s got you covered. This bullet’s naturally resistant to wind drift at a hefty 75 grains, and thanks to its super concentric jacket it boasts exceptional rotational stability!

    Speer’s total metal jacket does more than contribute to balance. Because the electrochemically plated TMJ additionally shields the bullet’s lead core, it bars hot propellant gasses from warping its base and impacting accuracy. And because its core doesn’t evaporate during ignition, this bullet keeps a barrel’s rifling cleaner and a shooter’s breathing space significantly more free of airborne carcinogen!

    Speer makes some pretty high end stuff, so they have the setup they need make consistently heavy and .725” long 223 bullets. A great pick for long distance shooters!

    Please note: This a box of 100 bullets for reloading, not loaded ammunition. You can not fire these bullets unless you know how handload.

    Horrible accuracy

    I really wanted to love these because of their price and BC. I have a BCM 20” barrel that loves the Hornady 55 Grain FMJ (1.25 MOA) and Hornady 75 Grain BTHP (.75 MOA). These shot around 5” groups at best and I’m not exaggerating.

    Bullet Type Total Metal Jacket (TMJ)
    Manufacturer Speer
    Manufacturer SKU 22475TMJ

    Speer made these .224 diameter bullets specifically with America’s most popular rifle cartridge in mind! At 75 grains they are optimal for loading long range rounds, and a skilled reloader can likely make these bullets’ ballistics work for non-223 cartridges as well.

    These bullets feature the total metal jackets that Speer is famous for. The Idahoan manufacturer implements a special electrochemical process to cover each bullet’s lead core entirely in a durable, even jacket. Unlike an FMJ, the TMJ additionally shields the core of the bullet at the base. This prevents deformation that could harm accuracy during ignition, as well as the evaporation of lead that leads to accelerated bore fouling. It also prevents the creation of lead vapors that you’re better off not breathing in!

    Speer is in control of their manufacturing process. They mean it when they say their bullet weighs 75 grains, and these bullets boast a highly standardized .725” length.

    Please note: This is a case of component bullets for handloading. Please do not order these bullets if you want loaded ammo that you can fire right out of the box!

    Review by Ted (Posted on 6/14/2021)

    Look no further

    Looking for a new loading for a new long range SDMR/SPR 20" AR I was fortunate to pick these Hornady 75gr HPBT early on. I matched them with 24gr. Varget, and 19.5gr.IMR4198. Both of these loading were VERY accurate grouping .250" to .750" at 100yards. Other powders that worked were H322, H355, 748 but the IMR4198 was best. Please use my info only as a recommendation all reloading safety should be taken and is your responsibility.

    I was looking for a better constructed bullet

    I'm shooting a .223 AR for eastern coyotes. Most of the 55 grainers are varmint bullets and didn't give a reliable exit. I needed something that would shoot sub MOA. These bullets fit the bill perfectly.

    You’ll get 50 Hornady GMX bullets in this package, with each of them offering fantastic performance. The 55-grain bullets use a copper alloy construction, which delivers controlled expansion and weight retention. The pressure-relieving grooves reduce fouling, and the tip is colored for easy identification.

    The .223 Remington is one of the best rounds for both varmint hunting and target shooting. It has an outstanding reputation for accuracy, and delivers some of the best terminal performance in the ammo industry. These rounds are very popular, and although the cartridge is relatively inexpensive, it can be costly to shoot on a regular basis. That’s why so many people choose to reload their spend .223 brass with fresh bullets like these GMX projectiles.

    Hornady is one of the top names in the ammo industry. The company has been making rounds since 1949, and now creates a huge selection of ammo supplies, including reloading bullets and empty brass cases. You can also turn to Hornady for complete center and rimfire cartridges.
