A projectile weight of 62 grains was chosen to match some of the most popular hunting ammunition in .223 Remington as well as the 5.56mm NATO M855 cartridge. In effect, shooters can expect a flight trajectory and recoil impulse that is consistent with many practice loads and matches several scope reticles and bullet-drop tables. Hornady crafts this ammunition using nearly 70 years of experience in bullet design and component assembly. The BLACK brand is intended to provide American shooters with an easily recognizable box and logo that expresses dependable operation and diehard performance.
