This round’s bullet is balanced for accuracy, and will leave behind a wide wound channel as its soft point initiates rapid expansion and tumbling in target. Federal took care to plate this cartridge’s brass shell casing with nickel, thus protecting it against corrosion and further helping it to feed and extract like a charm in a semi-automatic. Federal’s snappy primer and clean burning propellant will benefit any rifle capable of chambering this reliable round. A case of these is a must for the well-prepared AR enthusiast!
