This Federal Power-Shok round’s JSP weighs 64 grains. That’s relatively heavy for the 223, which means the bullet has the inertia it needs to follow a predictable trajectory even when crosswinds rudely decide to poke at it. (A barrel twist between 1:7" and 1:10” is best for 64 grains.) The 0.256 G1 ballistic coefficient bullet ought to overcome air resistance effectively enough to reach a whitetail standing at 100 yards with well over 1,000 ft lbs of kinetic energy.
The JSP’s jacket fortifies the bullet to ensure effectively deep penetration – but because the jacket also exposes the JSP’s soft lead core, it also allows significant deformation to take place as the bullet tunnels through soft tissue.
This is Minnesotan ammunition, so it is also reliable, brass-cased, Boxer-primed, noncorrosive and clean-shooting ammunition. Federal does good work (not unlike yourself).
