- Q & A
Here’s 100 rounds of the 223 Rem you need to master the range, not to mention defend your home if the situation ever demands it. Federal’s American Eagle cartridge has a standard 55 grain full metal jacket projectile. Its 3,240 fps muzzle velocity gives the bullet an extremely flat trajectory at close-to-medium range, and its boat tail base ensures that bullet will retain enough momentum to travel faster than 1,650 fps at 500 yards.
This bullet cannot expand after it hits a target, which is why it’s not marketed for self-defense. But it can tear itself apart into multiple fragments of shrapnel, which is terminal performance that tends to stop a threat rather quickly.
The bullet’s cannelure preserves its seating depth inside of its newly manufactured brass case. This particular ammo’s cases are unpolished, so you will be able to see the discoloration resulting from the annealing process that made it stronger. Non-corrosive Boxer primers make this ammo clean-shooting and easy to reload.
