Gun Descriptions

About The .223 Remington Ammo is bottlenecked and rimless cartridge, developed in 1957 for the United States Army when the need for a small-caliber cartridge capable of delivering a high velocity arose. Even to this day, the .223 Remington Ammo is considered one of the most popular bullets and is used by various manual action and semiautomatic handguns. The .223 Remington Ammo offers better accuracy in NATO barrel chamberings than the 5.56x45mm Ammo. Even though these two bullets are pretty similar, they require significantly different chambers to be used properly. A longer barrel of the gun typically offers a greater muzzle velocity. When it comes to the .223 Remington Ammo, the muzzle velocity decreases or increases about 25.7 feet per second for an inch on barrel length. The overall length of this bullet is 57mm, and the bullet diameter measures 5.7mm. Velocity offered by the .223 Remington Ammo is 3,750 feet per second while producing an energy level of 959 ft. lbf.  Manufacturer In the year 1962, Remington Arms designed the .223 Remington Ammo, and in the coming year of 1964, Remington Arms and Fairchild Industries developed this bullet.  Uses The .223 Remington Ammo has proven to be the most popular cartridge in its category and is widely used in a manual action, semiautomatic rifles, and even handguns. The .223 Remington Ammo is used for hunting small to medium-sized game and self-defense.  

The 350 Legend was released in 2019 and created solely by Winchester Repeating Arms Ammunition division, known now as simply Winchester Ammunition. The 350 Legend is a legend in its own right because it is one of the few cartridges that has no parent cartridge. It does have the same diameter as the .223 Remington cartridge but that is where the similarities of the two rounds start and end. This straight-walled cartridge was developed for hunting where states had strict regulations on straight-walled deer hunting rounds. The 350 Legend is a product of the Ammunition industry responding to ridiculous government regulation and overreach. Without oddball laws on hunting with necked cartridges, straight-walled cartridges like the 350 Legend cartridge would likely not exist. The performance of the round was designed to deliver high lethal terminal energy on deer at ranges out to 200 yards. The 350 Legend sits in an area of its own where at 200 yards it outpaces 300 Blackout, 30-30 Winchester, and 223 Remington in energy on target. The closest comparison for foot-pounds on target for the Legend is the 300 Blackout round which comes in at 790 ft-lbs at 200-yards. The 350 Legend clocks in at 903 ft-lbs at 200-yards. As you can see it’s no slouch and the .350 legend doesn’t just barely edge out the 300 blackout round either.
