A: Thanks for reaching out Levi! I cannot promise exactly when we'll get a certain type of ammunition back in stock, and we don't have a system in place to alert our customers when ammo is back in stock. We do update our inventory very often, so I hope you'll check back in again soon!

A: Hi Aaron. Thanks for reaching out to us at LuckyGunner.com. I confirmed with Barnes Mfg, that the Wylde chamber will handle the OAL and pressure of this round. You should be good to go! Let me know if I can assist in any way. Have a great day. Ross

A: Hi Gary. Thanks for looking to LuckyGunner.com for our ammo needs. Those OTM Barnes should do very well out of a 1:8 twist barrel. Let me know if I can get some on the way to you. Have a great day. Ross

A: Hi Alex. Thanks for looking to LuckyGunner.com for your ammo needs. You will lose a lot of velocity with the 10" barrel, but this will be common with any round you select. The open tip match projectile will be sufficient for thin-skinned predators only. The bullet design is not sufficient for any penetration on thicker skinned targets and will not hold up well penetrating bone. As far as accuracy, this 85 grain round will get good accuracy out of you SBR as long as the twist rate for the barrel is 1:7. Anything slower will not stabilize that bullet. Please bear in mind, do NOT use these rounds in any firearm chambered for .223 Remington. Use only in rifles marked 5.56x45mm!

A: A heavier bullet will resist the wind slightly better. The other factor that would help would be higher velocity. This velocity is a tad on the low side at 2600 fps. But that is to be expected with such a heavy grain weight bullets.

A: I would not personally recommend this projectile for any game animal. It might work, but there is certainly better out there. This bullet is designed to fly straighter and further and produce tighter groups, with very little regard for how much energy it strikes the target with. It is also not optimized to cause the catastrophic damage necessary to humanely kill a game animal. It is simply not designed to "mushroom" or expand like many of the other bullets. The 70 grain TSX is however designed to offer great accuracy and good groups, but sacrifices just a bit of range to be able to deliver a devastating wound to an animal and cause the kind of damage necessary for a humane quick kill. If you have any further questions about round selection or usage, please let us know. We are here to help.

A: These will fit in a standard AR pattern magazine. The bullet itself is whats heavier the completed cartridge is dimension-ally similar to all other 5.56x45 cartridges.

A: Great question. 223/5.56 might be a bit on the small side for Antelope, depending on where you take your shot from.
While those 85gr rounds you're looking at are excellent for long range target shooting, they are not designed for hunting. They will not expand reliably like a purpose-built hunting round will. If you're planning to go hunting, I would stick with something like 64gr Winchester Power Point or 64gr Federal Powershok.
