This cartridge has essentially the same specifications as the Army’s own M193 load, which is used for both training and combat. Each round’s 55 grain bullet boasts a consistent enough weight for rewarding target shooting, and has a full metal jacket to promote optimal functionality in a self-loading rifle. At 3,240 fps, this round offers the most common muzzle velocity for the 223 Rem.
Browning loads their ammo in America – our favorite country, followed by Tuvalu because its name is fun to say. “TOO-va-loo.” It has new production brass cases that are precision-formed to prevent jamming, as well as non-corrosive primers just like all other modern rifle ammunition.
