Federal didn’t reinvent the wheel when they loaded this 223 Remington ammunition, and that’s exactly why it is so awesome. This is the classic 223 Rem load, the AR-15 aficionado’s tried and true, and one of the best selections for plinking and target practice on the market. It’s even American made – Minnesotan made, to be exact, and boy do we ever love Minnesota!
55 grain bullet, 3,240 fps muzzle velocity: Anyone who’s familiar with the 223 knows those two numbers by heart. This round’s bullet is the classic FMJ, which has a solid gilding metal exterior to ensure smooth feeding and decreased bore fouling. There is no steel anywhere in this bullet, but it does include a boat tail which limits the amount of drag it can encounter in flight. That elevates this round’s ballistic coefficient to 0.269, so its bullet hugs a flat trajectory as it remains supersonic until around 780 yards!
Federal’s own non-corrosive primers and hygienic propellant work together to keep a rifle from quickly becoming a fouled mess. This ammo has brand new brass cases, which were very evidently annealed at the factory. You can be sure they’ll expand consistently, contract to their original dimensions, and retain the strength they need as reloading components.
