The AR-15 can be used for target practice, varmint hunting and personal protection. Why not load yours with 5.56x45 ammo that’s suitable for all three of those applications? Hornady’s Frontier label 5.56 is the definition of versatility!

This cartridge is loaded with a spire point bullet. That just means it has a certain aerodynamic profile, but what’s really important about this round’s bullet is that it’s a soft point. Its economical design means you won’t kick yourself for firing all 200 rounds at the rifle range, but its ability to expand outward as it penetrates soft tissue also makes this round’s soft point optimal for hunting rodents and predators – not to mention deal with home invaders and other immediate threats to your personal safety.

This round’s bullet weighs 62 grains and exits the barrel at a velocity of 3,060 fps. That grants it virtually identical ballistic performance to the U.S. Armed Forces’ M855 cartridge, although this round’s bullet lacks a penetrator tip and is 100% nonmagnetic. The bullet’s added heft gives it superior momentum and impact energy over longer ranges. A 1:9 or 1:8 twist barrel will give this round its best accuracy, although a 1:7 twist is fine for close-to-medium range.

Frontier label 5.56 ammo is loaded for Hornady at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant. This ammo’s durable and uniform brass cases are visibly annealed – they’re only discolored because LCAAP does not polish their brass before loading it, not because the shells were previously fired. This ammo is new production and non-corrosive, not to mention good for handloading.
