Eight hundred rounds of American-made 223 Rem ammunition divided among four easy to manage boxes? That’s any AR-15 connoisseur’s dream come true! Winchester’s USA ammo is just as good for hitting the range with bolt-action rifles, and it’s a good backup just in case your supply of specialized self-defense loads ever runs dry.
This round’s 55 grain bullet exits the barrel at a velocity of 3,240 fps. Its 0.248 G1 ballistic coefficient should keep its velocity supersonic until it reaches approximately 718 yards. As an FMJ the bullet specializes in dependable feeding and decent target grade accuracy. Its inability to expand following impact makes this FMJ’s terminal ballistics subpar as far as hunting is concerned, but it can easily neutralize a threat with adequate aim.
This ammo is nonmagnetic, non-corrosive and Boxer-primed. Winchester’s brass cases are blemished around their shoulders because they have been heat-treated for superior durability. This is not reloaded ammo, but it is an excellent choice if you intend to do your own handloading at home.
