Black Hills Ammunition TSX 50 Grain 5.56x45mm Ammo - 50 Rounds
Derived from the .223 Remington that was introduced in 1961, 5.56x56 ammunition was adopted by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization as the standard light and medium rifle caliber. While identical, but for the neck, to the .223 it should not be fired in .223 Remington chambers as it is loaded to higher pressures. For use in military style rifles or precision rifles chambered specifically for NATO, the round is very versatile and enjoyed by sportsmen for competitive target shooting as well as varmint and small to medium game hunting.
This 5.56 ammo is loaded with 50 grain TSX bullets by Black Hills. Expect a muzzle velocity of 3275 feet per second with 1191 foot pounds of energy. They are ideal for target and tactical shooting where maximum terminal ballistics are required and are designed for standard military 1 in 9” rifling.
Initially well known for their cowboy action shooting ammunition, Black Hills has developed a following for their remanufactured 5.56 and .223 Remington ammunition. Trusted for use by US military competition teams for their standard range ammo, this TSX, or Triple Shock bullet by Barnes is specifically designed for mushrooming with four jagged petals to deliver consistent performance and maximum expansion and penetration into the target.
