This cartridge’s 55 grain bullet and 3,240 fps muzzle velocity mean it has the classic specs for the 223. The nonmagnetic FMJ projectile is designed for positive functionality in a semi-auto, as well as to cut down on lead fouling within the barrel. Its 0.243 G1 ballistic coefficient will keep the bullet supersonic until approximately 700 yards. An FMJ cannot expand, although its tendency to fragment as it meets resistance from soft tissue makes this ammo a serviceable fall-back for home defense as well as varmint hunting.
This ammo is loaded with Winchester’s heat-treated brass cases. They are new and never before fired – the discoloration is the natural byproduct of the annealing process which makes brass more durable, and Winchester didn’t impact this ammo’s performance by omitting to buff it out. This American-made ammo is non-corrosive, with clean-burning propellant that will keep your rifle more accurate until you finally set it down.
