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.

    This 223 Rem cartridge by Tula features a 55 grain full metal jacket projectile. Savvy shooters know that Tula’s ammo isn’t welcome at ranges that ban magnetic projectiles, as the steel they contain inflicts needless wear and tear on backdrops. (Steel can create sparks, too, which in an indoor environment is an especially big no-no.) That’s why Tula makes this round’s jacket entirely out of cartridge brass, which is still more economical than pure copper yet compliant with steel bullet prohibitions!

    This round’s steel casing is itself more economical than brass, the effect of which you can see plainly reflected in its price tag. Tula helps their steel casings cycle unproblematically by coating them in low friction polymer, which doubles as protection against rusting from exposure to humidity. This round’s non-reloadable casing is outfitted with a cost-effective Berdan primer, which functions indistinguishably from the Boxer variety primer and is non-corrosive as well.

PMC Bronze ammunition comes from South Korea out of the some of the most sophisticated and efficient manufacturing plants. A length of experience producing ammunition for NATO countries as well as adherence to U.S. standard tolerances has a resulted in inexpensive ammo with high reliability.

    These cartridges are constructed using reloadable brass casings fitted with non-corrosive Boxer primers and topped by full metal jacket boat-tail (FMJ-BT) bullets. 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).

    Excellent ammo for the price

    Excellent ammo for the price. Runs very good and clean, no problems with whatsoever.

    Review by Madmax (Posted on 9/19/2016)

    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.

    Great ammo with a great price!

    Great price for 1000 rounds. 200 rounds through my Daniel Defense so far and had no problems. Need to order more before Jan 1 since I'm in CA.

    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

    Good quality ammo, runs great, never had an issue, run it in AR and COLT M-16 in full auto.

    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.

    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.

    Black Hills produces some of the best ammunition in the world, and this .223 Remington load is no exception. Designed for varmint extermination with .223 Rem and 5.56 NATO rifles such as AR-15s, this ammo features the Hornady V-MAX bullet. V-MAX projectiles consist of a hollow point with a polymer tip that improves aerodynamics and initiates expansion for rapid fragmentation.

    Each cartridge in this box of 50 fires a 50 grain version of the V-MAX at a muzzle velocity of 3,300 feet per second. The use of a relatively heavy bullet for a varmint load makes this ammo produce external ballistics somewhat similar (though not quite identical) to those of M193 ball. The heavier bullet also increases penetration for improved results against larger pest animals or predators such as coyotes.

    BHA of Rapid City, South Dakota is a renowned manufacturer of ammo for both military and civilian use. Their products are constructed using non corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases.

    These civilian versions of the "MK262 Mod 1" 77 grain open tip match, or OTM, rounds are perfect for range training (they differ only from the military version of the round due to a slightly different powder and primer). With much more mass than the standard 5.56x45mm range round, you don't have to worry as much about wind interference, helping to increase your accuracy. These are some of the best training rounds on the market.

These cartridges fire the Barnes TSX hollow point bullet, which delivers rapid fragmentation and highly effective performance against coyotes and other pest animals.

    Each round in this box of 50 fires a 62 grain version of the TSX at about 3,100 feet per second, producing similar external ballistics to M855 ball ammo. This is a valuable trait, since it means you can fire range loads and hunt without adjusting your optics before either activity.

    Each round in this box of 50 fires a 62 grain Barnes TSX hollow point bullet at 3,000 feet per second. The TSX is a solid copper design with a grooved shank that absorbs expanding bullet material to reduce fouling and chamber pressures. It delivers very strong expansion, a key benefit in this relatively low-caliber cartridge. External ballistics of this load are comparable to (and somewhat more consistent than) those of M855 ball.
