This 223 Rem cartridge was loaded by the old Italian expert, most likely in their Missouri factory. Thanks to engineering technology that the Fiocchi family have honed for well over a century, this round features a supple and annealed brass casing that chambers without issue, a fast to spark Boxer primer, and clean burning propellant. Fiocchi’s loading practices have yielded definitively reliable rounds for every application.
With its 55 grain V-MAX projectile by Hornady, this round’s ideal application is varmint hunting -- although we don’t doubt it would underserve a shooter pressed into a self-defense situation. This bullet’s boat tail and sharp polymer tip make it highly aerodynamic, and its concentric jacket and optimal bearing surface grant it superior stability in flight. The V-MAX’s tip extends down into the swaged lead core’s hollow cavity, and upon impact rams inward to unleash positively explosive fragmentation -- even at lower velocities. One of the finest polymer tipped hunting bullets on the market in our opinion!
