Each .223 Rem cartridge is built upon a nickel-plated brass casing fitted with a non-caustic Boxer primer; the sleek, shiny plating guards the ammo against degradation while also ensuring smooth feeding and extraction even after chambers get caked with carbon. The casing is crimped to the toothed cannelure of a 55-grain Gold Dot projectile with a "soft," exposed lead tip. Gold Dot bullets undergo the UniCor process which permanently bonds copper plating to the lead core, resulting in a bullet that expands during entry but doesn't fragment. This expansion causes great damage to threats, quickening the end to a conflict while decreasing the risk for over-penetration in domestic environments. The 55-grain weight matches a ton of available practice loads and will stabilize in nearly any barrel twist rate for universal compatibility and ease of zeroing.
