This 223 Rem ammo is the economical solution for all-day target shooting with an AR-15 rifle. The secret to the ammo’s low price tag is right there in its name. Each round’s 56 grain bullet has a lead core and a bimetal jacket, which is mostly made out of steel with a thin copper wash coating on the exterior. An Essential Steel FMJ offers consistent, target grade accuracy – and it will also attract a magnet.
This ammo has steel cases as well. They’re outfitted with non-corrosive Boxer primers, although steel’s inelasticity means these rounds’ cases will let more carbon fouling into your rifle’s action. It also means they’re non-reloadable, so this 223's a one-and-done kind of deal!
