Do you want 5.56x45 hunting ammo that’s loaded with lead-free bullets? Lo and behold, we’ve got you covered! Hornady’s Superformance series ammunition is accurate, deadly on medium game (within reasonable ranges), and sure to keep the game wardens off your case while you’re hunting on protected land!*

This cartridge features Hornady’s own 55 grain CX. It’s a one-piece copper alloy projectile: tough enough to achieve at least 95% weight retention and resultant deep penetration, and incapable of depositing lead inside rifling or meat. The CX also features the deep hollow point nose cavity it needs in order to elicit rapid, wide, and highly injurious terminal expansion.

Hornady recorded this round’s 3,175 fps muzzle velocity and 0.270 G1 ballistic coefficient with a 24” barrel. Set your sights 1.5” high and zero in at 100 yards – the CX will reach its mark with almost 950 ft lbs of kinetic energy and drop to -3” at 200.

This ammo’s bullets are special, but its virgin brass cases and noncorrosive Boxer primers are Hornady’s usual fine work. You can reload this ammo. We’ll even send you the bullets you need for the job!

*Obviously the game wardens could take issue with you for doing something else you’re not supposed to, but at least they won’t be able to nail you for having lead bullets where you aren’t supposed to.
