About This Winchester 223 Remington Ammunition

Regular old 223 Rem FMJ ammo can serve well enough for personal protection. But when you’re forced to use your AR-15 to defend yourself and your family, you’re really better off selecting ammo that is engineered specifically for such an important task.

This is Winchester’s Silvertip ammunition. Its Defense Tip bullet looks quite striking, but each feature serves an important purpose. The giant black polymer tip has an accordingly giant base, which slams into the bullet core on impact to deliver wide-diameter expansion and rapid energy transfer. The shiny jacket isn’t made of silver – it’s nickel-plated copper, which reduces friction to help a semi-auto feed like clockwork and also protects against deleterious corrosion.

This round’s 64 grain bullet is heavier than normal for a reason. Alongside its resilient alloyed lead core, the Defense Tip’s added heft grants it the momentum it needs to tunnel deeply into soft tissue. That alongside its massive expansion ensures that the bullet unleashes the terminal ballistics which spell a fast end to a self defense situation.

This ammo’s heavyweight bullets will exhibit the best accuracy out of a 1:8” twist barrel, but they’re perfectly capable of hitting a close-range target without optimal in-flight stability. Winchester’s premium brass, Boxer primers and propellant provide the reliable performance any firearm needs to serve as a tool for personal protection.
