Ths 223 Rem Prairie Enemy ammo by Sierra is optimal for managing troublesome critters. Each round sports a BlitzKing bullet, which at 55 grains offers a 3,215 fps muzzle velocity that is comparable to the standard M193. The BlitzKing offers far better accuracy than any target grade FMJ, however, as its concentric jacket, jacketed base, boat tail, and centered acetyl resin tip all lend to its superior balance and low in-flight drag.
The BlitzKing’s polymer tip is also its secret weapon. On impact it crashes back into the lead core, forcing it and the jacket outward in an explosive display of fragmentation. This shrapnel efficiently transfers the BlitzKing’s available energy inside of a smaller target, thoroughly killing the hapless critter as the result.
While Sierra is best known as a bullet maker, the old American company certainly understands the value of consistent, carefully loaded brass cases, non-corrosive primers, and clean burning propellant. Expect super predictable ballistics every time you fire a round from this case!

- No sir, Sierra makes this ammo for the commercial market so it has normal primers and no primer crimps.

- Absolutely! Yoy may notice better accuracy from a 55 grain bullet with a 1:9 twist barrel, just as you would a 64 grain bullet from a 1:8 twist barrel. Either way this 223 ammo should function correctly in your AR-15.
