This cartridge’s 62 grain FMJ projectile has a two-piece core. The rear section is made of pure lead, while the frontal portion is made of steel. This does more than make the bullet magnetic – it also facilitates clean penetration through a variety of barriers including sheet metal, making it as practical for certain types of personal protection scenarios as it does regular target practice. Please take care that this ammo can damage steel targets.
Sixty-two grains is a little heavier as far as 223 Rem projectiles are concerned. A 1:7 barrel twist will provide adequate accuracy, but a 1:8 or 1:9 twist will give the projectile optimal rotational stability for long-range shooting.
