223 (5.56) Ammo

.223 Remington ammunition and 5.56x45 NATO are closely related and sometimes interchangeable cartridges depending on the firearm they are to be used with. Manufacturers typically offer guidance on this point. In general, the 5.56 NATO ammunition the military uses and is for sale to the civilian market operates at higher pressures than .223 Remington ammo. Most, but not all, AR-15s are chambered for 5.56 NATO and can fire both types of ammo.

Many loads in both calibers follow the M193 or M855 standard, both of which are military specifications. M193 ammo typically fires a 55 grain full metal jacket bullet at 3,240 feet per second, while M855 ammo fires a heavier 62 grain FMJ bullet at about 3,100 feet per second. These common standards are very helpful when sighting in your optics and you'll find both cartridges in-stock and available in cheap bulk packs here at Widener's

Certain specialized loads deviate from these common standards. Competition grade .223/5.56 ammo fires a heavier bullet (most commonly a Sierra MatchKing) in the 77 grain range to provide better stability and more predictable trajectories; varmint loads, on the other hand, fire light 30-40 grain bullets at very high velocities to produce lethal fragmentation against pest animals.

One of the most sought after range loads for this caliber is Lake City ammunition, which is produced by Federal Premium Ammunition at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, Missouri. LCAAP production is typically excess from government contracts and is popular due to its military origins and high quality.

    to plink around with, why not

    i've fired over 500 rounds and no hung ups. haven't patterned it out, but on steel out to 100 you'll get a plink. for what it is worth it is decent

    Review by b (Posted on 7/17/2016)

    Great deal

    Bullets are great. Great quality and no issues with anything. I've already placed a second order.

    Review by Charlieman (Posted on 7/12/2016)

    Exactly what I ordered and works well for range firing. Order received on time and in good condition will order from you again.

    Excellent product for plinking have had no problems using them in a MP15. Getting accurate grouping at 100 yards, I would not be afraid to use them on garments at close range.

    Each cartridge in this case fires a 62 grain projectile at a muzzle velocity of 3,025 feet per second. Expect external ballistics similar to those of M855 ball ammo (a particular benefit if you use optics).

    The Big Bad Wolf was an idiot. There he was, trying to blow down a house made of bricks, when what he should have done was kick down the Third Little Pig’s door and indiscriminately spray inside the home with an AR-15. Maybe that is a little dark, though, even for a classic fairytale.

    In any event, there’s no wonder which ammo the Big Bad Wolf would have chosen for so wanton an act of mayhem: these 223 Rem cartridges by Wolf itself. Because wolves don’t work, he would have greatly appreciated these rounds’ low cost steel casings, which still feed and extract reliably thanks to their glossy polymer coating. He would have approved of the round’s responsive primer, as well as its charge of clean burning propellant. And while this round’s 55 grain FMJ projectile may not be optimal to pepper a hog with, that the Big Bad Wolf could easily have afforded to dump a whole magazine of these rounds would have more than compensated for that shortcoming.

    Transmutation was a medieval theory which revolved around the notion that you can turn one metal into another. It turns out that that is impossible, as evidenced by the high price of brass. But when you buy Wolf ammo you get to thumb your nose at high brass prices, because you are taking advantage of the affordability of steel!

    This cartridge’s steel casing makes it economical to shoot as much and often as you please. Wolf layered this 223 Rem round’s casing in a thin layer of polymer to not only ensure that it feeds and ejects without issue, but also to guard it against corrosion. With its non-corrosive primer, you can store this ammo for a very long time in the right conditions!

    This round features a 75 grain hollow point projectile. Shortly after penetration that nose cavity will initiate massive expansion accompanied by staggering energy release. That makes this versatile round as great for target shooting as it does bringing the fight to pesky varmints!

    Reliable in a Well built Ar-15

    I've been shooting 55 gr tula .223 for 3 years HARD. First in a mini 14 and later a Daniel Defense Ar-15. This is what I prefer for my practice ammo. Naturally I've had a few bad primers and the like, maybe +/- 1/1000.

    Review by Levi (Posted on 1/24/2017)

    Great for the price and my needs

    Bought this for instruction and so far 200 rounds and so good. Have plenty of brass and for the time it takes to reload, this just made sense. I'm in no way "professional" but will check for build up and may change review if abysmal.

    Whether you would like your ammunition to stay fresh and ready to fire for the rest of your life, or you’re planning an expedition to somewhere dusty or damp where your ammunition’s integrity might be compromised, then a sealed spam can is always a great way to go. These 500 223 Rem cartridges from Wolf’s Military Classic line of ammunition will be content to sit wherever you put them until they’re opened with a satisfying “thwuck.”

    This round sports a 55 grain projectile, the standard weight for its caliber. Its bullet’s full metal jacket makes it able to tunnel through most types of tenacious targets, and protects your rifle’s bore from rapid lead fouling as well. This round’s steel casing may be non-reloadable, but that’s quite alright given its attractive price tag. The casing’s thin polymer coating optimizes its performance in a semi-automatic weapon, and also protects it against corrosion once its spam can has been opened.

    Tula ammunition delivers massive savings for high volume shooters who cannot reload used brass. These .223 Remington cartridges fire a 55 grain hollow point bullet at 3,241 feet per second, producing nearly identical ballistics to M193 ball ammo.

    The hollow point bullet used in these rounds is a relatively simple design that can double as a cost-effective hunting load as well as a target one.

    These cartridges are loaded in Tula, Russia using non-corrosive Berdan primers and non-reloadable steel cases. The cases come with a polymer coating that reduces friction as the rounds travel through the action of the gun. This reduces the incidence of malfunctions without producing the fouling of the lacquer coatings that were once used on steel-cased ammo.

    This .223 Remington ammunition from Tula is a cost-effective range load for AR-15s and other .223/5.56 NATO rifles. Each cartridge in this box of 40 fires a 55 grain bimetal (zinc coated steel) jacketed bullet at 3,240 feet per second. This gives it similar external ballistics to M193 ball ammunition--a plus if you like to shoot what's available without having to adjust your optics.

    Tula ammunition is loaded in Russia using non-corrosive Berdan primers and non-reloadable steel cases. The cases are polymer-coated for enhanced reliability during feeding and ejection. Due to its steel components, this ammo exhibits some magnetic properties and may not be permitted at all indoor ranges.

    Brown Bear's ammunition has been circulating in the U.S. market for years and has earned a reputation for inexpensive plinking and hunting with America's favorite AR-15 rifles as well as other pieces chambered in .223 Remington. This Russian-born ammo utilizes non-reloadable steel casings in order to keep costs low without compromising performance. Each case is coated with a treatment of rust-repelling lacquer and fitted with a non-corrosive Berdan primer that produces zero caustic salts when ignited.

    A 55-grain hollow point bullet is affixed to the top of the cartridge and matches the weight of common practice ammunition in both .223 Remington and 5.56mm NATO, including the memorable M193 cartridge; this ensures light, controllable recoil along with familiar ballistic travel for sight adjustments. The hollow point round is designed for rapid fragmentation during target entry, creating larger wound cavities and more effective damage while limiting the amount of lethal over-penetration. That makes these rounds a popular choice for varmint hunting as well as personal protection.

    When they make their Frontier line of ammunition, Hornady utilizes state of the art loading techniques and the most exacting quality assurance protocol that they’ve got at their disposal. This isn’t just any Frontier ammo, though -- it is manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, and is thus totally mil spec from its high quality brass casing to its clean igniting and responsive Boxer primer. Lake City is able to produce ammo at staggering capacities without compromising quality, so this round is both cost-effective and just the kind of thing you need to make groupings that are tighter than bark on a tree.

    This M193 round’s 55 grain projectile is Hornady’s contribution. As such it features all the reputable manufacturer’s trademarks: an intensely uniform lead alloy core, a hard and concentric jacket that penetrates easily and enables straight flight, and the consistent weight needed for consistent performance. With 1,000 of these rounds packed in a single box, it’d take one heck of a range session to run out of ammo.

    Delivered very quickly. Can’t beat the price

    I’ve got an equal number of M855 green tip and m193 ball. Most of it is American Eagle (Federal) this is my first Hornaday. I’m quite sure they will live up to legend....

    Cycles in my Adams upper!

    I run a Adams Arms piston gun. It doesn't cycle light loads. Most .223 fall into that category.
    This is pretty hot and cycles every time. This is a great value and Wideners has always had the best deal, even including shipping on this product.
    Great product and the owner cares about my concerns, personally, if I need his involvement! Don't be shy about doing business here. You'll be satisfied. I am!
    Thanks again!

    There’s a good rule of thumb to abide by when it comes to how much ammo you should have: However much you’ve got, get more. This case of 1,000 223 Rem rounds from Hornady’s Frontier ammo line will take care of that big time, and they’re great rounds to boot. With Lake City’s own brass, primers, and propellant they boast the same high quality as the ammo utilized by the U.S. Army, and their production has been overseen every step of the way by Hornady’s own quality assurance sticklers.

    This round’s 55 grain projectile wears a full metal jacket, so it’ll make it from magazine to chamber smoothly and not leave behind a great deal of residue after having passed through the bore. Hornady’s decades of experience crafting fine bullets is evident in how concentric this one’s jacket and how uniform its core are. It’s resultant superior accuracy will do you every kind of service the next time you go to the range!

    We might be one of the nation’s preeminent ammunition suppliers here at Widener's, but we’re still down to earth. We put regular unleaded in our Italian sports cars, and we only buy dog food that is made out of extant animals. We even shoot steel cased ammo, like these 223 Rem cartridges by Wolf. They’re just too good of a deal to pass up on, even if you wear a tuxedo to your kids’ school plays.

    This round’s a great deal owing to its steel casing. We’d say that the biggest drawback of steel is that it’s no good for handloading, but if you like so many others don’t bother to handload anyway, that shortcoming is about as moot as can be. Wolf applies a proprietary polymer treatment to their casings, so you can expect smooth and reliable performance out of any platform of rifle, even a semi-auto as you’re rapidly firing it.

    This is a range round, with an FMJ that takes better care of inanimate targets than live ones. The bullet weighs 55 grains, so anyone even remotely experienced with an AR-15 ought to know just how it’s going to handle.

    Fiocchi presents their Shooting Dynamics line of ammunition to enthusiasts who favor the Exacta line for competition and would like a more affordable option to train with, as well as anyone who enjoys a high quality cartridge without having to pay dearly for it. This is a very accurate 223 Rem round thanks not only to its lightning fast 3,240 fps muzzle velocity, but also its 55 grain projectile’s boat tail design. The bullet’s tapered base radically streamlines its profile, giving it enhanced resistance to crosswinds, a flattened trajectory, and the ability to retain a large portion of its momentum downrange. The bullet’s full metal jacket further promotes accuracy by preventing rapid bore fouling.

    This round has a tough and brand new brass casing, so a handloader will take a lot of value from it. Its Boxer primer is non-corrosive, so it’s got a great shelf life and is nice to an AR-15’s action as well. These 1,000 rounds come in just five convenient field packs, making bringing along what you need to get the most out of your time at the range an absolute breeze.

    We have recently been informed that money can be used to acquire things other than ammo, such as food and clothing. This seems like a waste of money to us, but we understand all the same. That is why we are proud to offer Wolf’s fine products. They are super friendly to any budget, but will still let you enjoy your rifle as it’s meant to be.

    This round’s 75 grain bullet is nice and heavy for its caliber, so with the proper rotation it will shrug off the straying influence of vertical and cross winds. With its nose cavity the bullet is able to deliver reliable expansion shortly after initial impact, and its heft helps it to penetrate more deeply as well. This cartridge achieves its stellar price tag largely due to its steel casing -- its cost is nearly only half that of a brass cased equivalent. Wolf has made sure that this round won’t snag in your semi-automatic by giving its casing a special polymer coating to reduce the friction it creates. That alongside a non-corrosive Boxer primer promotes extended storability to boot!

The bullets weigh in at 55 grains which is a standard across the board for the caliber and will stabilize with the widest ranges of barrel lengths and twists. In addition, the boat tail tapered rear of the bullet reduces drag and increases accuracy. This bulk pack of 1,000 rounds is great to stock up on for matches and classes and has been specifically recommended by some training companies like the United States Shooting Academy (USSA).

    even better than expected

    I was looking for better accuracy than I'd found with _ _ _ _ M193 type ammo and reviews indicated the PMC was the answer. Bought a case to function test a new M-4(gery) for another shooter. This ammo is topnotch-more accurate than the carbine's owner can utilize. I just wish I'd bought two cases and kept one.

    200 Rounds Fired So Far: 0 Complaints

    The ammo came in a convenient packaging of 20 rd boxes. Convenient to load two mags of 10 rd each (in the pathetic state of CT, that's all we're allowed). No issues with the firing or ejection. Tight grouping at 25 yards after sighting in. Haven't tried 100 yards yet. No complaints

    Fired 3000+ Rounds, not a single issue

    PMC Bronze is great ammo. Im on my fourth case right now, and I love it. Zero failures. With my Daniel Defense 16" Carbine and an ACOG I was effortlessly hitting 24" square steel at 500yds with 55gr! I prefer it to other ammo as most other brand 5.56 has the dirty looking annealing burn marks on the neck of the cartridge, but PMC takes the time to polish that off. It doesnt affect function of course, but it is a really nice touch. Quality ammo, buy with confidence.

    These rounds feature 55 grain projectiles, the standard for their caliber. Their bullets’ full metal jackets assure reliable feeding in semi-automatic weapons, penetration through hard targets, and that your rifle’s bore won’t become rapidly fouled by lead residue. They also feature non-corrosive Boxer primers which suit them for long-term storage, as well as factory fresh brass casings which are indispensable to the handloading enthusiast.

    As you probably know, not all rifles (and not even all AR-15s) chambered in .223 Remington can fire 5.56 NATO ammunition. Check with the manufacturer of your firearm if unsure.

    This ammo is loaded in Brazil and uses non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases. CBC (which also produces ammo under the Magtech, MEN, and Sellier & Bellot brands) is one of the largest defense contractors in the world and has extensive experience producing quality mil-spec ammunition.

Do please note that these rounds’ primers are crimped, which will add a negligible but still extra step during the handloading process.

    Mil-Spec M855

    Look, this is mil-spec M855 62gr ammo, not match grade ammo! M855 is not as accurate as M193 55gr ammo because the steel penetrator doesn't always line up in perfect balance when the bullet is assembled. It is excellent ammo for ranch defense and ranges up to 400 meters with minimal bullet drop. The M193 55gr is a little more accurate but drops a lot more and is more susceptible to cross winds. If you are shooting either of these rounds from an AR15 at 100-200 yards I guarantee they will do just fine!!

    Review by Station (Posted on 8/28/2018)

    Great ammo for the price.

    This ammo is combat tested and great to train with. With iron sites I was able to achieve 1 MOA at 300 meters. ( That is a 3 inch spread between 3 rounds at 300 meters.) Not bad for my old eyes, or for this ammunition. I used a COLT 6940 to get the job done. I would recommend this ammo to anybody who wants a reliable round to shoot.

    Review by Soon to retire MSG (Posted on 7/14/2018)

    XM is good for plinking and casual shooting

    Fine stuff for casual use, not target grade but reliable and fairly clean,
    Yes it has the penetrator, should be obvious, because that is what 855 is supposed to have. Can’t see giving it two stars because it is built to spec as previous reviewer did. It seems to go bang every time and less than 30cents/ round for even XM855 is not a bad price. If we want to quibble, then having to true up staked primer pockets when reloading is an extra step, but that goes along with mil-spec ammo also.

    Review by CTX HAM (Posted on 7/13/2018)

    fine for plinking but be aware of the steel penatrator

    I've shot a lot of M855 and it's fine blasting fodder or if you need to shoot through car doors but buyers should be made aware that this stuff (usually, but not always designated with a green tp on the projectile) has a steel penetrator and is not allowed on a lot of ranges.

    This will be my go to site

    I was referred to Wideners by a friend. I ordered the product and to my surprise it showed up four days after the order. I didn't know what to expect in terms of timing. I was preparing to travel for a week and was worried that the shipment would arrive in my absence. All of that was averted with the prompt delivery. No one likes shipping costs but in this case, the delivery was worth it. 1000 rounds is a heavy item. The cost was reasonable and the timing perfect. I will definitely order again.

    With this box, you’ll get 20 rounds of full metal jacket ammunition from Wolf. The 55-grain bullet is excellent for medium to long-range shooting, as it has a muzzle velocity of 3,241 feet per second, helping it maintain a straight, consistent trajectory. The cases use WOLF’s Polyformance coating, which enhances smooth feeding into the chamber. This product is a single box containing 20 rounds of .223 Remington.

    WOLF is one of the top brands for high-volume ammunition. They specialize in creating affordable ammo that doesn’t sacrifice quality and performance. If you own an autoloading rifle or handgun, WOLF has the ammo choices you need for a full day at the range.

    The .223 Remington delivers outstanding velocities and accuracy. While other rounds can claim more energy and stopping power, few can travel as fast as the .223 Remington. Because of its excellent speed and precision, it has become a favorite among varmint and predator hunters and is used extensively for target shooting and competitions.

    Wolf Ammo has recently told customers to not use their 223 Rem ammo in any Smith & Wesson M&P 15 rifles. We highly recommend you follow their warning until you hear otherwise.

    The X-TAC line from PMC more closely follows the same specifications used for manufacturing military grade ammunition. As a result, this 1000 bulk pack of 5.56mm has a few features that you won't find in usual lots of inexpensive ammo. These XP193 rounds are great for rainy day storage, high round count classes, practice sessions, fun plinking, and building a ballistic chart close to NATO-spec M193.

    Like M193, these XP193 rounds feature 55 grain bullets which are compatible with the widest range of barrel lengths and twists of AR, SCAR, ACR, and other 5.56x45mm chambered rifles. The full metal jacket boat tail (FMJ-BT) projectiles feature a toothed cannelure which prevents round setback during rough handling or repeated loading and live ejection; bullet setback can affect accuracy or even cause catastrophic firearm failure. In addition, the reloadable brass casings have a consistent coat of sealant surrounding their non-corrosive Boxer primers which prevents moisture from entering the cartridge and creating dud rounds. The casings are also annealed for added strength to prevent pressure-induced malfunctions and guarantee long brass life for reloaders.

    PMC ammunition is produced in South Korea on some of the same tooling and machines used to supply NATO countries with war-fighting ammo. These bulk packs are highly regarded among American shooters for their inexpensive cost, high reliability, and adherence to M193 specification.

    Anoka, MN is known for being two things. It is the Halloween Capital of the World, which is nice, although we believe that nearby Braham, MN did better by proclaiming itself the Homemade Pie Capital of Minnesota. Pie beats plastic skeleton decorations any day of the week. Anoka is also the home of Federal Premium, whose nearly century-long commitments to quality and technological innovation have made them one of the country’s preeminent ammunition manufacturers. That means this Black Pack of 223 Rem ammo is a great investment in your shooting pleasure.

    This 223 Rem round has been crafted according to tight tolerances, and will chamber properly in 223 Rem, 5.56x45, and 223 Wylde alike. Its properly drawn, tapered, and annealed brass shell casing will also make the perfect foundation for several handloads! This round’s home is at the range, where its accurate 55 grain full metal jacket projectile will prevent rapid bore leading and promote full penetration of an unconventional plinking target. Even if you aren’t able to fire all 600 of these rounds right away, their non-corrosive Boxer primers will store beautifully for several years to come!

    Get your fill of M855 style ammo with this 1000 round bulk pack of PMC's X-TAC NATO 5.56mm. Just like milspec M855, these rounds use 62 grain bullets with light-amor penetrating* steel tips which are painted green for easy identification. As a result, these rounds will match ballistic tables and ballistic drop compensation (BDC) reticles commonly used with modern low power scopes. The reloadable brass casings are annealed at the neck and shoulder for added strength (useful to reloaders) while the non-corrosive Boxer primers are bordered by moisture-blocking sealant. The bullets are full metal jacket (FMJ) and possess toothed cannelures to prevent projectile setback.

    PMC is a Houston based company that sources its ammunition from South Korean plants that supply to the ROK military as well as other to other NATO countries. Their X-TAC line is highly regarded for adhering to stringent military specification while still maintaining an inexpensive price for all shooters.

    *While this is not armor-penetrating ammunition by definition, some ranges will not allow these rounds to be fired indoors nor outdoors on certain steel targets.

    Best M855 round

    This is the best M855 ammo I've ever bought. It's not second class or third class M855 like what Lake City is that the public can purchase. PMC sale first rate M855 to the public at a fair price and it's very clean brass.

    It’s hard to count the number of blessings that Minnesota has got going for it. Where else can you enjoy endless hot dish, delectable lutefisk, and the World's Largest Crow Statue? On top of all that, they’ve got Federal, one of the nation’s leading ammunition manufacturers. This 5.56x45 cartridge is a great way to keep your AR pumping, and because it’s from the American Eagle label it’s cost-effective without doing away with the pervasive quality that a satisfying shoot demands!

    This round isn’t just accurate because of its nearly mach three muzzle velocity. Its 55 grain bullet further sports an evenly layered jacket, as well as a boat tail design which benefits its ability to ignore cross winds and hold on to that fast muzzle velocity farther downrange. We’d challenge you to find even one instance among these half thousand rounds where their casings differ in any way from one another. That equates to seamless cycling, consistent performance, and just what handloaders ought to be on the lookout for.

    This 5.56x45mm cartridge by Federal is a penetrator round. Its 62 grain projectile’s green tip indicates that it possesses a steel core, the sturdiness of which enables it to pass through thin metal, thick glass, hard wood, and virtually any other barrier you could expect to encounter at your plinking range. It’s great fun to have, and a reason to take a car from the junkyard rather than to it!

    This cartridge’s bullet further features a full metal jacket, so you can expect it to feed in your AR-15 reliably and also prevent excessive lead fouling within its bore. On top of that, this is a highly accurate projectile owing to its boat tail design. It’s marvelous for target practice, even at long distances, for the resistance to wind drift and ability to maintain greater energy downrange that it provides.

    Although affordable, an American Eagle round always represents superior quality. These 500 rounds’ brass casings are fresh from Federal’s factory and ready to be handloaded once emptied, and their sure-fire Boxer primers are devoid of corrosive chemicals so as to keep your rifle’s action in tip top shape.

    This cartridge sports a 55 grain projectile. The gilded metal jacket wrapped around its lead alloy core hardens it substantially, allowing it to prevent lead fouling and penetrate most common targets on impact. The bullet’s concentric jacket and extremely fast muzzle velocity give it a nice, flat trajectory, the sort you could depend on to hit varmint-sized targets if you so wished.

    There’s something entirely more satisfying about investing in bulk ammunition when it comes in a steel ammo can. To be certain, storing ammo in a sealed and water resistant container means it’ll stay fresh and ready to fire for that much longer, but a sturdy green can also gives your ammo storage space an altogether more substantial feeling. The can that this ammo comes in is fit for abuse during rugged camping and hunting trips, and should its contents ever run out you could easily use it to brain a threat in the head in order to neutralize it.

    No one disputes that Serbian manufacturer Prvi Partizan makes superior ammunition, and this 5.56x45 cartridge is a fine instance of their work. Its 55 grain M193 projectile is the real deal with its bore preserving full metal jacket and boat tail design which markedly increases its ballistic coefficient and improves its accuracy. Its precisely formed brass casing and non-corrosive Boxer primer also suit it perfectly for the purposes of a handloader.
