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.

    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!

    Review by CPL Hayes (Posted on 5/18/2020)

    Great, inexpensive, and accurate!

    I generally reload all my own .223 ammo because I'm looking for accuracy first. I load for four different bolt rifles, one single shot rifle and several AR-15's. Years ago, I had tried several different brands of .223 FMJ's and was dissatisfied with the accuracy. I could regularly produce sub MOA groups out to 300yds (longest range available) with various brands of JSP's and JHP's and simply settled on spending a little more for those. Recently A friend of mine told me he was getting sub MOA accuracy out of Berry's bullets. I ordered these last week and had them here in about 3 days. They were shipped in a cardboard box and the packaging was fine as everything arrived intact. The bullets are bright and shiny and appeared to be uniform although admittedly in my rush to load them, I didn't spend a lot of time measuring or weighing samples. This weekend I loaded some up with two different powders (H335 and BLC#2) and tried them in three different bolt actions. They produced numerous groups in the sub MOA range at 100 yards and maintained one MOA at 300 yards. I need more time to tweak the loads to find the sweet spot, but needless to say I am very pleased with this level of performance from a very inexpensive bullet. I am ordering more right now!

    Review by Gunrat (Posted on 5/17/2020)

    great for the price

    I loaded with cfe-223. got 1 moa gruips @ 100 yards with a 20" AR. came in a nice plastic box, bullets have a very nice shine.

  3. Hornady .224 Bullets - 62 Grain FMJ – 5500 Count


    In stock

    Cost Per Bullet 10.0¢ per bullet
    Bullet Weight 62 Grain
    Bullet Caliber 22-250, 220 Swift, 221 Rem Fireball, 222 Rem, 222 Rem Mag, 223 Rem, 5.56x45mm
    Quantity 5500
    Bullet Type Full Metal Jacket (FMJ)
    Manufacturer Hornady
    Manufacturer SKU 22760B

    Take care! This is not loaded ammunition that you can fire right out of the box. These are 5,500 component bullets for hobbyists who load their own ammunition.

    Hornady makes some mighty fine ammo, largely due to the fact that they make some mighty fine bullets. Why not put that good old-fashioned Nebraskan know-how to work the next 5,500 times you load a round for your own AR-15?

    This is Hornady’s .224” diameter full metal jacket bullet. The FMJ features Hornady’s signature Advanced Manufacturing Process jacket, which has essentially no variation in its concentricity or wall thickness. And it’s a strong jacket at that – unlike other manufacturers’ target grade bullets, Hornady’s FMJ greatly resists splintering apart as it penetrates its target. If you’re a prepper mass-producing your own SHTF loads, take note that this bullet punches a little harder than the rest!

    Seating this bullet is easy thanks to the clean cannelure girdling its shank. Hornady even put a little boat tail on there to give your handloads a higher ballistic coefficient! And at 62 grains, this component bullet is ideal if you want to load ammo to M855 specs.

    Customer Reviews

    Don't put lose bullets in a cardboard box.

    I received a damaged box with bullets falling out. I would recommend bagging them for future costumers. I would estimate that a 100+ bullets are lost, with 5500 I wasn't going to stress about it.

    Review by ALO (Posted on 9/30/2021)

    62 FMJ Hornady

    Very consistent when seating to hit the cannelure just perfect to form a nice roll crimp. I do trim my brass to get them to the same length. These are the among best quality bulk bullets on the market. Armscor and Sierra are good too but I like the Hornadys the best.

    Review by Russ (Posted on 6/19/2021)

    Very good deal. Would recommend to anyone.

    Hornady is a very good brand. I have had good success with hornady for a long time. Would reccomend this brand to anyone.

    Any hunter who wants a fast, effective, and accurate round for wild hog, coyote, and other medium to small game should seriously consider the .223 Remington cartridge. These rounds have quickly become one of the most popular loads over the past decade, and these bullets will help you with all your reloading needs.

    When you order this box, you’ll get 1,000 bullets of 50-grain ammunition. While the bullet is lighter than the more-common 55-grain projectile, this .223 bullet is still effective when it comes to both speed and accuracy. The hollow point ensures consistent expansion while the light design ensures excellent accuracy, even at a distance.

    Speer is a well-known name in the ammo industry. They have a wide selection of ammo and reloading choices ranging from .22 to .45-caliber cartridges. From handguns to rimfire rounds, Speer has the bullets you need for all of your shooting sports.

    Already recommended to two people..

    Have already recommended you to two people. A pleasant surprise to find a company doing business based upon their word, and mine. Product was shipped complete and quickly and was paid for, by personal check, upon receipt. Cannot remember last time I found a company doing business in this manner.

    Review by Lou (Posted on 2/21/2021)

    I was impressed with the overall quality, dissapointed in online sale

    The quality of the bullets I bought were outstanding. 4-star. I would have rather seen a curved or tapered bottom, makes loading easier. These were flat. I accidentally ordered these. It was a mistake I made myself. But, I went to cancel the order right after it was processed and there were no way to cancel the order. I sent an email but by the time they replied the order was already packaged. I think the company needs to improve their website fuctions.

    The bullets performed just fine and I look forward to using all 1,000. As soon as I can find some primers.

    Review by Daniel (Posted on 10/25/2020)

    I bought these on a whim hoping for a good, accurate and inexpensive projectile. I got exactly what I was hoping for!

    Outstanding and inexpensive

    Shot a .660 3 shot group at 320 yards this evening. Have shot several sub .3" at 100. This is from a 1-12 ar-15. I only bought 1k when on sale because I didn't know how they would shoot. Now I know! Can't wait to take pdoggin!

    Bullet Type Penetrator
    Manufacturer Hornady
    Manufacturer SKU 22761B

    This is not loaded ammunition. These are component bullets for handloading. Please only order these bullets if you intend to load your own ammo!

    Ready to try your hand at loading your own 5.56x45 M855 ammunition? Then you couldn’t ask for a better partner than Hornady! The great Nebraskan manufacturer offers this case of 1,000 .224” diameter 62 grain FMJ M855 bullets so you can do in your free time what the guys over at Lake City get paid to do on a daily basis.

    These bullets do not have green paint on their tips, but they are M855 (aka SS109) bullets nevertheless. Their cores contain steel penetrator tips to promote more reliable penetration through sheet metal. The M855 bullet is suitable for target practice at ranges which permit magnetic ammunition, though it is also practical for defense against threats shielded by light armor or vehicles. If the M855 bullet strikes soft tissue at a velocity in excess of 2,500 fps, it will likely yaw, fragment apart at its cannelure, and subsequently track two separate wound channels into its target.

    Hornady’s bullets are revered for their concentric gilding metal jackets, uniform lengths and diameters, and overall quality. Many handloaders uphold Hornady’s bullets as the best the market has to offer. If you reload 5.56x45 ammo for your AR-15, then you can’t go wrong ordering a case of Hornady bullets!

    Bullet Type Total Metal Jacket (TMJ)
    Manufacturer Speer
    Manufacturer SKU 22455TMJ

    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!

    Quantity 100
    Bullet Type Total Metal Jacket (TMJ)
    Manufacturer Speer
    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.

    Great bullet at a fair price

    Great Bullets and great service

    Shipping couldn't have been faster. Very happy with purchase. Thankyou Wideners.

    Review by Chuck (Posted on 12/23/2020)

    Accurate at 1-9 twist, 20" A2, at 600 yds

    I doubted this bbl would stabilize this heavy of a bullet, but I was wrong. They'll cut the X ring out at 100, stay in the X ring at 200 to 600 as well. Whether they'll handle wind as well as heavier bullets is doubt full, but for the price they do a great job. I'm running them at 2700 fps over H4895.

  11. Speer .224 Diameter Bullets - 75 Grain TMJ – 2000 Count


    In stock

    Cost Per Bullet 19.3¢ per bullet
    Bullet Weight 75 Grain
    Bullet Caliber 22-250, 220 Swift, 221 Rem Fireball, 222 Rem, 222 Rem Mag, 223 Rem, 5.56x45mm
    Quantity 2000
    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!

    Product has performed as expected...will purchase again

    Built a rifle specifically for this bullet and it has performed to my expectations. Accurate and devastating on coyotes. Wideners processed my order and shipped very fast. Very pleased.

    should work on big hogs better than 55 gr.

    Wanted a heaver bullet for hogs

    Review by hog hunter (Posted on 8/17/2021)


    I tried a couple of powders, and found a good load with each of them.

    They seem pretty consistent. Haven't had a chance to shoot the loaded ammo yet.

    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.
