This cartridge features the varmint hunter’s lightweight 50 grain bullet. Its sharp polymer tip and well balanced jacket stack up to give this bullet a 0.242 ballistic coefficient. Over shorter distances you’ll barely have to arc so flat-shooting a bullet’s trajectory at all. The bullet’s polymer tip also enhances its terminal ballistics, as it is designed to commence rapid expansion with accompanying fragmentation as soon as it enters its target.
Browning loads this 223 Rem ammo with new production brass cases, sensitive primers that won’t coat your barrel with corrosive residues out in the field, and clean-burning propellant that preserves a rifle’s accuracy. This ammo is not ideal for home defense because its bullet is designed to expand at a shallow depth; still, it’s pretty low on our list of cartridges we’d want to get hit with ourselves.
