Hornady’s extensive lineup of bullets includes some impressively high-tech hunting and self-defense solutions. But the old Nebraskan company certainly knows how to produce a simple yet effective full metal jacket, too. If you’re just taking aim at some targets with your 223 Rem rifle, then Hornady’s got you covered front and back!

Technically speaking, this round’s 55 grain bullet is a full metal jacket boat tail, with a tapered base that generates less drag than a flat base as it bolts through the air. That boosts the bullet’s G1 ballistic coefficient to a respectable 0.243 – the reason why you can aim to 100 yards and see less than -3” of drop at 200 (assuming your sights are centered up 1.5”). If you’re not all that into ballistics, just know that this ammo is accurate enough to take care of all your training, plinking and general target shooting needs.

Hornady doesn’t produce remanufactured ammo. These cartridges’ cases are freshly minted and polished to a fine shine, and they’re sure-as-shooting going to do you right if you’re a handloader. This 223 ammo’s fit for all 5.56 rifles, too!
