What’s that? You got yourself a real beaut of an AR-style rifle – but you ain’t got no American-made 223 Rem to run through it? That is an outrage. A travesty, no less! Let us fix you up with a 500-round chunk of 223 Rem by Federal Premium, which is perfect for all those trick shots you’re going to make at the range.

This cartridge is loaded with a 55 grain full metal jacket boat tail bullet. That’s a solid lead core with a copper-alloy jacket, with no steel that can attract a magnet or damage your favorite range’s backdrop. The jacket’s cannelure keeps it securely planted in the case mouth, so recoil isn't going to jar it out of its seating while it’s sitting in the magazine. The FMJBT’s boat tail simply helps it stir up less drag while it’s speeding through the air. The bullet has a respectable 0.269 G1 ballistic coefficient because of it, so if you’re zeroed in at 100 yards you can expect the bullet to drop by just 2.7” at 200.

This ammo’s not your best bet for home defense because the FMJBT isn’t going to deliver the terminal expansion which more effectively neutralizes a threat. The cost-effective bullet is exactly what you want for range shooting, though. Federal’s new brass cases are also what you want for handloading, and their noncorrosive Boxer primers are coated in a thin film of protective sealant.
