About This Hornady 223 Remington AmmunitionLooking to squeeze a little greater accuracy into your target shooting session? This 223 Rem ammo by Hornady will get you where you want to be!
This cartridge features Hornady’s very own HP Match projectile. The 55 grain bullet will attain a muzzle velocity of 3,240 fps when fired from a 24” barrel, which makes its recoil and in-flight ballistics pretty comparable to the U.S. Army’s 5.56 M193 load.
But the HP Match isn’t any regular old full metal jacket bullet. Its lead core was allowed to solidify within its jacket, so its weight is very evenly distributed. Alongside Hornady’s famously concentric jacket, this is one well balanced bullet!
The HP Match is not to be confused for a bullet that expands inside soft tissue. Its terminal ballistics are in fact comparable to those of an FMJ, so don’t use this ammo for hunting anything but the smallest critters. (A 55 grain 223 bullet’s impact energy alone is enough to send a 10 pound critter flying.)
Hornady’s Frontier label ammo is loaded by the U.S. government’s very own Lake City Army Ammunition Plant. This ammo has military quality non-corrosive primers, clean-burning propellant and new brass cases. You can even see where Lake City annealed their brass for greater durability, and these cases are indeed a choice component for handloaders!
