This is Remington’s most basic type of 223 Rem ammo, which is great for those occasions when you want reliable yet affordable practice with your AR-15 or other rifle. Each cartridge’s 55 grain bullet is poised to exit the muzzle at a standard velocity of 3,240 fps. The FMJ will not expand like you’d want for self-defense, though its hard pointed jacket promotes optimal functionality in magazine-fed firearms by preventing FTFs and rapid lead fouling.
These rounds have brand new brass cases, not reloaded ones, with Remington’s own non-corrosive Kleanbore primers and clean-burning propellant. Loose-packed ammo like this saves you a lot of time opening boxes – open this case once, and it’s as opened as it’s possible for it to be!
