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.

    Hornady is one of America’s leading bullet manufacturers, and they load ammunition with the same love and care that they spend on each and every projectile. Their BLACK series 5.56x45 ammunition makes the perfect companion during any range day, as it’s loaded with the high-quality components and tight specs any rifle needs in order to do its best work.

    Hornady loads this ammo so you can have the same recoil and trajectory that the U.S. Army’s M855 cartridge would have provided – without the magnetic bullet. Cut Hornady’s 62 grain FMJ in half and you’ll find a lead core, copper alloy, and no steel penetrator insert. The non-expanding FMJ’s mid-jacket cannelure effectively prevents setback in the magazine that could have interrupted feeding or thrown off seating depth.

    BLACK ammo is loaded with reloadable brass cases. Its non-corrosive Boxer primers are sealed for added longevity in storage, and its propellant is consistently loaded to deliver a 3,060 fps muzzle velocity (20” test barrel), just like the M855.

    The .223 Rem has been around since 1964 and has become one of the most popular rounds in the world. With its high velocity, low recoil, and light weight, the .223 Rem is great for several shooting applications including hunting, range training and competition shooting.

    Since 1922, Federal has been manufacturing some of the best ammo in America. Headquartered in Anoka, Minnesota, all of Federal's ammunition is loaded in the USA.

    These Power Shok rounds feature 64 grain soft point projectiles that are designed to deliver controlled, reliable expansion for medium game hunting. Each bullet is pressed into a boxer primed brass case that can be reloaded. Firing at 3050 feet per second, these rounds sacrifice a little velocity for more consistent trajectories and better energy transfer on target.

    This 5.56x45 cartridge is from Hornady’s Frontier line of ammunition, and was manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant to provide cost-effective but still admirable performance out of any rifle you could chamber it in. Its 75 grain projectile provides match grade accuracy thanks in large part to its boat tail design, which reduces the amount of turbulence it leaves in its wake during flight to flatten its trajectory and permit it to retain a greater part of its velocity after having traveled great distances. This bullet further sports a narrow hollow point meplat to improve its resistance to wind deflection.

    Given its place of manufacture, this round features military grade components to complement its bullet’s high level performance. Its factory fresh brass casing is very durable with an annealed neck and shoulder, and able to withstand being reloaded multiple times. Its Boxer primer is extremely sensitive and non-corrosive, and its powder burns without producing harmful residues as well.

    The American frontier is gone, but Hornady Frontier keeps going strong! This is the 223 Rem ammo you want to chamber when accuracy is key – grouping tight shots through paper, or landing a single bullet clean between a gopher’s peepers.

    Hornady utilizes the industry’s most advanced loading equipment and protocol when they piece together a Frontier load. This American-made ammo’s brass cases are military-grade, and you can see by their annealing that they’re poised to reload several times. This ammo’s primers are also military-grade, which promotes consistent ballistics along with its uniform propellant charges and bullet weights.

    Each bullet is Hornady’s accurate BTHP Match. It features its manufacturer’s Advanced Manufacturing Process jacket and a form-fitted swaged lead core, both of which enhance in-flight stability to ensure the meplat is always pointed at its target. The BTHP Match’s secant ogive profile, boat tail and narrow hollow point meplat all decrease in-flight drag to flatten trajectory. Zero in at 200 yards and you can expect only 7.5” of bullet drop at 300!

    The BTHP Match’s hollow point doesn’t affect terminal ballistics by creating expansion. The impact of a 68 grain bullet alone ought to take care of most varmint hunting and self-defense applications, though.

    Good Quality and Great Service

    After spending a couple of hours looking for a decent price on 68 grain .223 BTHP ammo that was in stock, I finally found Widener's site, and they actually had it in stock. This ammo is pricy everywhere, but Widener's had it available for about a nickel per round below the next best price. I immediately placed an order, and the shipment showed up two days before I expected it. I will definitely look forward to looking to Widener's when I've saved up enough money for another purchase.

    The American Frontier no longer exists, but Hornady Frontier is alive and well. We’ve got a bunch of it in our warehouse, as a matter of fact, and it’s ready for action whether you’ve got long-distance shooting, varmint detail or home defense in your plans!

    This 5.56x45 cartridge is designed to turn any AR-15 into a capable sniper rifle. It’s furnished with a heavyweight 68 grain bullet. It’ll stabilize best out of a rifle with a 1:8 barrel twist, but a little faster or slower twist will be okay as well. As a boat tail hollow point this bullet features a ballistically efficient profile and balanced, uniformly distributed lead core. It won’t expand inside of its target, but it’s certain to get there courtesy of its match grade accuracy.

    Frontier ammo is non-corrosive, nonmagnetic, and made in America. This ammo’s military-grade brass cases are consistently drawn and chambered to help them reliably weave in and out of a chamber, and you can rest assured they’re good for handloading.

    We haven’t seen it ourselves, but we’re sure your AR build rocks. A chrome moly charging handle. A jewel-encrusted trigger guard. A barrel that was personally signed by Ronnie Van Zant. The ultimate piece of freedom hardware!

    But no matter how much you upgrade your AR, it just can’t exhibit its very best accuracy unless it’s running the right ammo. Whether you’re trying to group shots with laser precision or line up long, beautiful parabolas, we’re confident you’ll love PMC X-TAC Match.

    This cartridge hails from South Korea, but its bullet was made in Missouri by Sierra. It is the highly acclaimed MatchKing: an open tip match with a razor-thin super-concentric copper jacket that breeds accuracy and a form-fitted lead core that does the same. The 77 grain bullet will stabilize best out of a 1:6", 1:7" or 1:8" twist barrel, and its 2,790 fps muzzle velocity and 0.372 G1 BC are both the products of a 20” barrel.

    Virgin reloadable brass. Trusty noncorrosive Boxers. Surprisingly fast shipping. Everything your 223 match ammo should have!

    If you are looking for reliable and effective ammunition for your training and target-shooting needs, this 20-count box will deliver the performance you expect. Loaded with 62-grain full metal jacket bullets, these rounds give you better cycling from the magazine to the chamber and leave less fouling in the barrel. For a full day of target shooting, a few boxes of these targets will do the trick.

    The full metal jacket bullet is one of the most popular projectiles for high-volume target practice. Because the bullet is wrapped in metal, the lead core does not leave a fouling residue in the barrel. Through hundreds of shots, you’ll have much better accuracy, helping you compete or train at the highest level.

    Hornady is a cartridge company that has been serving American gun owners since 1949. Based out of Nebraska, this company originally made bullets but now has a wide variety of complete cartridges for rifles, handguns, and shotguns.

    A short-barreled rifle (SBR) is an excellent tool for personal defense. But if your barrel measures between 10.5” and 11.5”, then you would be well advised to select ammo which is specially intended for it.

    Hornady’s BLACK series 5.56x45 ammo is loaded with the 75 grain InterLock HD SBR. It excels at initiating expansion flowing low-velocity impact courtesy of its exposed supple lead tip and grooved, tapered jacket. It also has the durability it needs to defeat a wide variety of common barriers thanks to its cannelure and InterLock ring, which doubly anchor its jacket and core together. Hornady designed the InterLock HD SBR to excel at the FBI test protocol for self-defense ammo. They succeeded.

    This ammo’s powder is similarly engineered to supply optimal functionality in SBRs. It minimizes blinding muzzle flash, softens report to an impressive degree, produces extremely little fouling, and does not overheat a suppressor. Hornady’s best brass cases feed without hesitation, and their Boxer primers are intensely reliable.

    Hornady also recommends this ammo for medium game. A great choice for a midnight boar bonanza!

    Hunters of small and midsize game will appreciate the strong performance of this Black Hills soft point .223 Remington ammunition in the field.

    Each round in this box of 50 propels a 60 grain soft point bullet to a muzzle velocity of 3,100 feet per second. This high velocity, which is characteristic of the .223/5.56 NATO caliber, is particularly advantageous with this bullet type as it promotes better mushrooming and terminal ballistics. Unlike hollow points, these projectiles will not fragment heavily and damage edible meat.

    Black Hills ammunition is made in the USA using reloadable brass and non-corrosive primers.

    First Time Purchase

    Dealing with the folks at Widener’s was a pleasure.I was looking for LE grade .223 Ammo which other dealers simply didn’t have. Widener’s website indicated their stock supply was good which a telephone call to them confirmed. The order was placed on a Saturday, and the following Monday afternoon the Fed Ex delivery person walked up on my front porch with my order! I will certainly use Wideners again for my future ammunition needs. Great folks!

    Hornady continues its long history of innovation in the ammo industry with Superformance cartridges, which feature efficient propellants capable of producing higher muzzle velocities without an increase in barrel fouling or wear. Unsurprisingly, this advance is a great fit for varmint loads, which rely on velocity to produce pest-killing fragmentation.

    Each .223 Remington cartridge in this case of 200 fires a 53 grain Hornady V-MAX polymer-tipped hollow point bullet at 3,465 feet per second.

    This ammo is loaded in Grand Island, Nebraska using reloadable brass and non-corrosive primers.

    You are the mighty AR-15 varmint hunter. Groundhogs and prairie dogs want to avoid you, but everyone else wants to be you. A hero like you would never stoop so low as to fire inferior ammo during his all-important mission. That’s why you select Sierra Prairie Enemy.

    This 223 Rem cartridge features its manufacturer’s own 55 grain BlitzKing. Here you have a balanced, streamlined bullet which puts its 3,215 fps muzzle velocity to full use so it can boast a high G7 ballistic coefficient of 0.127. Such a bullet needn’t rise even five inches on its way to a 300 yard target, and it still packs over 300 ft lbs of killing energy at 500 yards!

    This boat tail bullet’s polymer tip doesn’t just center and streamline its meplat, however. That acetyl resin spear rams inward as it penetrates a varmint’s flesh to commence absolute disruption of its thin copper jacket. The BlitzKrieg thus manages to nearly instantly dump all of its energy within its waiting target – a truly commanding kill.

    Sierra loads their Prairie Enemy ammo with the same attention to detail they’d engage for any of their match rounds. Each round’s primer, propellant charge, and brass case are standardized to promote reliable ballistic performance.

    No varmint knows what fate awaits it after death. But once it enters your crosshairs, it’s due to find out very shortly. If you’d like one of the better 223 Rem solutions to varmint-related problems, then Nosler Varmageddon series ammunition will see you there.

    This cartridge is loaded with Nosler’s own 55 grain flat base tipped bullet. Its 3,100 fps muzzle velocity and respectable 0.260 G1 ballistic coefficient translate to an impressively flat trajectory which still carries over 250 ft lbs of energy at 500 yards – a cannon ball, as far as any burrowing critter is concerned.

    The FB tipped bullet’s flat base provides a perfectly circular surface for propellant gasses to exert their energy against, which in turn provides bench-rest accuracy. On impact the bullet’s polymer tip pushes inward to violently force apart its copper-alloy jacket and lead-alloy core, so you can count on calamitous terminal expansion to make instant work of your little quarry.

    Nosler loads fine ammunition in Bend, OR. Even a cursory inspection of their ammo’s premium brass cases, sensitive Boxer primers and uniform bullets should assure you that you got just the right stuff for precision varmint whacking.

    Turn your AR-15, Mini-14, or other .223 Rem/5.56 NATO rifle into a fearsome varmint exterminator with this .223 Remington ammo from Hornady's Varmint Express series. These cartridges are loaded with V-MAX hollow point bullets with an aerodynamic polymer tip. V-MAX projectiles are designed to fragment rapidly to exterminate groundhogs, nutria, coyotes, and other pest animals.

    Each cartridge in this bulk priced case of 200 fires a 55-grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of 3,240 feet per second. This results in trajectories similar to M193 mil-spec ball; for a varmint load, this ammo fires a relatively heavy bullet suitable for larger targets. The ballistic similarities between this ammo and common range loads makes for easy transitions between target shooting and hunting applications.

    Hornady ammunition is produced in Grand Island, Nebraska using reloadable brass and non-corrosive primers. Originally founded in the 1940s as a manufacturer of high-end bullets, Hornady branched out into loaded ammo in the 1980s and offers products for defense, hunting, and competition use.

    You’re not messing around. You’re going to prove that “effective range” is merely a concept by covering insane distances with your 223 Rem rifle – and Hornady Superformance is precisely the 223 Rem ammo you need to do it!

    This cartridge is loaded with a big boy 75 grain projectile. That extra mass equals greater inertia, ergo higher resistance to wind deflection hundreds of yards downrange. As a hollow point boat tail, the bullet possesses the form-fitted lead core it needs to exhibit formidable rotational stability and the tapered base that helps to conserve momentum.

    Whereas your run of the mill 223 round’s 55gr FMJ achieves a G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.243, this round’s tack driver of a 75gr HPBT has a G1 BC of 0.395. In other words, its trajectory will peak at about 5.23” before it reaches a 300-yard bullseye (assuming your rifle has a 24” barrel, which is the test barrel length Hornady used to record this round’s 2,930 fps muzzle velocity, and your sights are set 1.5” high).

    Hornady’s Superformance Match series ammo achieves a muzzle velocity that’s about 200 fps higher – without producing more unwanted recoil, muzzle blast, fouling or chamber pressure in the process. This ammo hails from Nebraska, where Hornady loaded it with their highest-quality reloadable brass cases and primers.

    Please note: Despite its appearance, the HPBT will not deliver terminal expansion. It is solely designed for accuracy.

    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 cartridges feature Hornady V-MAX polymer tipped hollow point bullets, which deliver excellent accuracy and fragment rapidly upon contact with an animal to effect a quick, clean kill with less risk of overpenetration.

    Each cartridge in this box of 20 fires a 55-grain version of the V-MAX at a muzzle velocity of 3,240 feet per second. Compared to other varmint loads, this ammo fires a relatively heavy bullet at a medium velocity, producing external ballistics comparable to those of M193 ball. This is a plus for shooters who prefer minimal optics adjustment when transitioning between target shooting and hunting, and it enhances the load's terminal performance against larger animals.

    Hornady ammo is loaded in Grand Island, Nebraska using non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass.

    Do you want to prove that you have the most accurate 223 Rem rifle on the planet? Then you’re going to need the right ammunition to make your case. Winchester’s Match series ammo is engineered to deliver the outstanding precision you need to start making people wonder whether you’re cheating physics.

    This cartridge’s hollow point boat tail bullet is made by Sierra. It is the MatchKing, aka the bullet that has won more competitive target shooting events than all other manufacturers’ bullets combined.

    The MatchKing begins as a thin copper jacket, which doesn’t deviate in concentricity by any more or less than 0.0003”. The opening in the MatchKing’s tip exists because the bullet’s lead was poured into place while it was molten, subsequently hardening to create an extremely uniform and voidless core. (The MatchKing’s nose cavity is not designed to initiate terminal expansion; it is not a hunting or self-defense bullet, and exhibits comparable terminal ballistics to an FMJ.) The MatchKing’s boat tail serves to minimize the bullet’s in-flight drag and increase its ballistic coefficient.

    And this round’s ballistic coefficient is indeed high for a 223 Rem: G1 0.302, G1 0.152. The 69 grain HPBT should stay supersonic until approximately 780 yards, and its trajectory should rise by approximately 3.15” before it plows into a 200-yard bullseye. (Winchester recommends firing this match grade 223 ammunition through a 1:7” to 1:9” barrel for optimal accuracy.)

    Varmints may be troublesome – but they’re not stupid. If you shoot one with an inferior bullet he’s going to use his dying breaths to make fun of you. Hunt varmints with extreme accuracy and commanding terminal performance with Sierra’s Prairie Enemy ammo instead!

    This 223 Rem round delivers the awesome accuracy of Sierra’s BlitzKing. It is a streamlined bullet with a sloping boat tail base and piercing polymer tip, able to shrug off drag as it retains well over half of its starting velocity at the 400 yard mark. When its tip connects with a varmit, the BlitzKing’s thin-walled jacket instantly ruptures outward to overwhelm that target with disastrous fragmentation! Picture the accuracy of a MatchKing with the terminal effect of a firecracker, and you have a good grasp on what the BlitzKing has to offer.

    Sierra carefully seats their varmint buster in a freshly minted brass case. The case’s uniform wall thickness and strong brass construction both lend themselves to intensely reliable performance. This round’s non-corrosive primer and clean burning propellant create a steady chamber pressure while reducing internal fouling.

    This 200-round case of 5.56mm NATO ammunition is a great purchase for competitive match use or for testing out a new high-class build from Desert Tech or LaRue Tactical. Each round utilizes a 75-grain hollow point boat tail (HPBT) projectile which exhibits superb accuracy due to its measured internal balance, consistent outer dimensions, and aerodynamic shape. In addition, a toothed cannelure keeps the heavyweight bullet firmly seated within its crimp so that recoil vibrations don't upset final shot placement.

    The reloadable brass casing of each cartridge is filled with a potent charge with powder, like all Superformance rounds, which produces breathtaking muzzle velocity for flatter shooting out to greater distances. This propellant accepts a spark from a non-corrosive Boxer primer which is accompanied by sealant that prevents moisture from ruining its ignition quality. Hornady's projectiles and finished ammo are supported by expertise that dates back all the way to 1949.

    These heavyweight 5.56x45mm loads stretch the limits of their caliber thanks to Hornady's Superformance Match standards. In general, Superformance loads utilize unique propellant blends to achieve muzzle velocities that are well beyond the norm; that's why these rounds launch 75-grain BTHP projectiles at 2,910 feet-per-second from a 20-inch barrel, lending them amazing range capability for match use or long-range shooting in general.

    The powder is contained within a reloadable brass casing which has a small amount of moisture-sealant in its primer pocket along with a Boxer primer; this arrangement guarantees reliable ignition under any conditions. The 75-grain BTHP at the top of the cartridge has a boat tail rear, tapered ogive, and tiny hollow tip for drag resistance which contributes to smaller groups. The bullet is built by feeding lead through the bullet's hollow point in order to build a dense core free of distortion while leaving the copper AMP jacket's pristine dimensions untouched.

    Barnes Precision Match ammunition is here to treat you to some of the best accuracy you’ve ever witnessed! This 223 Rem cartridge features the Match Burner – a 77 grain open tip match boat tail projectile that is designed for competitive shooting events!

    First things first: an OTM bullet is not intended for hunting or home defense, simply because its hollow point nose cavity isn’t engineered for terminal expansion. The OTM’s meplat has a narrow aperture because liquid lead was poured through it – hence the bullet’s voidless, balanced, and rearward-situated core. The bullet’s narrow tip, tapered tail, and sleek, thin jacket are all in the service of minimizing drag, increasing downrange momentum, and enhancing precision. Its massive 77 grain weight gives the bullet greater resistance to wind drift as well (Barnes recommends a barrel twist of 1:8” or faster for this ammo).

    This round has a G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.349. Many variables will determine exactly which trajectory the bullet follows, but you can realistically expect around -9.57” drop at 300 yards when you set your rifle’s 1.5” high sights on a 200-yard zero.

    Barnes loads this ammo in Utah with match primers, fastidiously measured propellant charges, and new brass cases that belong at a reloading press once they have been emancipated from their bullets.

    Barnes is highly regarded for the quality of their solid copper bullets – but the old Utahan company certainly knows how to make a great traditional lead-core bullet as well. For proof of that you need look no further than this Precision Match series 5.56x45 ammunition, which features the Match Burner open tip match boat tail projectile!

    This round’s OTM BT is a big boy at 69 grains. It’ll supply you with a lower muzzle velocity of 2,900 fps, but that pays off in the form of superior downrange momentum – precisely the property which gives a bullet greater immunity to wind drift. The OTM BT’s match jacket, tapered tail, form-fitted lead core and hypodermic needle-like tip give the bullet the balance and sleek profile it requires to exhibit a 0.330 ballistic coefficient. That translates to 300-yard trajectory which pinnacles at 6.4”, as well as supersonic velocity until approximately 850 yards.

    You may already know this, but the OTM BT is unsuitable for hunting game larger than varmints. The bullet may technically have a nose cavity, although that feature is not designed to initiate terminal expansion at any velocity. As such the OTM BT’s terminal ballistics are pretty much identical to an FMJ’s.

    Match-grade primers, expertly loaded propellant and top-end reloadable brass cases complete Barnes’ awesomely accurate Match Burner bullets. Order a box or five and prepare to witness your 5.56 rifle’s true potential!

    This 223 Rem hunting and home defense cartridge by Barnes of Utah is loaded with the one and only Triple-Shock X (TSX). The TSX is a solid copper bullet that you can legally fire on protected lands, but its benefits certainly don’t end there!

    A monolithic TSX bullet eliminates lead fouling of the barrel (not counting trace lead residue from primer ignition). Its perfect weight distribution enhances accuracy by ensuring peak rotational stability, and the TSX’s Accu-Groove reduces contact with the bore to promote even less fouling while preserving a rifle’s accuracy. Because copper is so resilient, the TSX consistently retains virtually all of its weight during penetration – even if it encounters thick hide or fabric first.

    The TSX is a hollow point bullet, although it doesn’t mushroom outward in quite the same fashion as a traditional JHP. The TSX doubles its original diameter by sticking out four sharp cutting petals, each of which causes great damage to any surface it scrapes against.

    Barnes VOR-TX is one of the most popular lines of lead-free ammunition on the market. Once you’ve bid farewell to all of this ammo’s TSX bullets, you’ll be able to bring its Boxer-primed brass cases back to life at your reloading station!

    This 5.56x45 round’s 70 grain TSX is a real showstopper. Designed for hunting, It’s a copper bullet through and through, which makes it pleasantly nontoxic, and its inherent toughness and lack of components that are capable of separation allow it to penetrate deeply without shedding a significant amount of weight in the process. The TSX’s accuracy is top notch as well, as its streamlined profile, pressure relieving grooves (which also lessen barrel fouling), and tapering base all work together to grant it a lofty ballistic coefficient. And terminal performance? Does double diameter expansion accompanied by the formation of four sharp cutting petals sound like they would work to bring down a buck in an instant? You can certainly bet they do. Throw in a VOR-TX round’s newly minted brass casing and consistent primer and propellant charge, and you’ve got the makings of one of the best hunting rounds on the market.

    Among initiated hunters and precision shooters, the Barnes name is credited for some of the most precise components and ammunition in existence. By that note, these heavyweight 5.56x45mm cartridges from the VOR-TX can be trusted for varmint hunting, short-range conquests on big game, and even personal protection purposes. Each round is loaded with a 70-grain TSX projectile which has a one-piece body completely made up of gilding metal with a tiny hollow point up front. During entry into game, the TSX is designed to expand and double its diameter with a petaled pattern, slicing its way through dense hide and meat while tumbling and throwing momentum into vital areas.

    In addition, the projectile's banded body improves gas trapping and facilitates incredible balance for tight accuracy downrange. The TSX bullet is crimped into a reloadable brass casing which has been checked over for burrs and inconsistencies. A non-corrosive Boxer primer is triple-staked into the casing's base pocket in order to prevent primer popping, potentially a rifle-killing malfunction, from occurring. Due to the increased pressure and heavy bullet weight of this 5.56mm NATO ammo, Barnes suggests that the round should only be fired through barrels with 1:8 or faster twist rate and never be used in .223 Remington chambers.

    A versatile load suited for defense and hunting applications, this 5.56 NATO ammunition from Black Hills is the perfect choice for multipurpose AR-15s and other .223/5.56 rifles.

    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.

    Black Hills is a renowned supplier of defensive and sporting ammo and counts all branches of the US military among its customers. Their products are made in Rapid City, South Dakota using non-corrosive primers and re-loadable brass.

    The Blackhills 62gr TSX performs!

    I was told this by Ozzy from (BHA), The Blackhills local Sniper and SWAT teams conducted numerous tests through windshields and doors with this TSX 62rg round and confirmed the performance. Also the local response teams and agencies have chosen the 62gr TSX as their issued duty load because of its performance. The 62 TSX performs the same as the 50gr TSX as far as performance through barriers and retaining the petals, according to Ozzy from Blackhills, hope this info helps you guys.
