The 223 Rem has been around for half a century, and, despite its age, it is one of the most popular rounds in the Western World. Developed by Remington, this round was designed for the soldiers to provide a lightweight, high speed, low recoil round and a light rifle for easier maneuverability. This object was achieved and today the 223 Rem is used by hunters, match competitors, plinkers and those looking to defend themselves.
Black Hills has been around since 1981, providing civilians and the US Military with high quality, highly accurate ammunition. Headquartered in Rapid City, South Dakota, all of Black Hills ammunition is loaded in the USA.
