More Details About This Hornady 55gr Polymer Tipped .223 Ammo
This 223 Rem cartridge from Hornady’s Critical Defense line of ammunition features a 55 grain FTX projectile. The bullet’s patented Flex Tip compresses into its core upon impact, initiating rapid expansion that’s effective at neutralizing threats quickly. The flat polymer tip further assists in penetration by preventing fabric clogging, facilitates expansion at lower velocities, and optimizes performance in lever action rifles.

It’s not only its tip that makes the FTX bullet high performing. This bullet features an InterLock ring that mechanically locks its high antimony lead core to its heavy jacket, improving weight retention as the bullet burrows through a soft target. The FTX also sports a secant ogive profile which flattens its trajectory and improves its accuracy markedly.

This round is ideal for firing in low light environments. Its casing is nickel plated, so it is easily detected during a chamber check. Furthermore, its propellant is specially formulated to reduce muzzle flash, so your first shot won’t blind you in the dark. If you defend your castle with an AR-15 or lever action rifle, consider filling its magazine with these hard-hitting cartridges.
