- Q & A
This round’s 55 grain bullet is an FMJ. It is totally nonmagnetic and therefore suitable for all ranges, and its concentric jacket at once promotes easy feeding in a semi-automatic and superior in-flight balance. Out of a 20 inch barrel the bullet achieves a 3,240 fps muzzle velocity, granting it a .243 G1 ballistic coefficient for an impressively flat trajectory and plenty of energy to transfer on impact.
Hornady’s Frontier label ammo originates at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant. The government-owned facility gives each cartridge a charge of clean burning military grade propellant, as well as a crimped and dependably Boxer primer to spark it up in an instant. This round’s new brass case is annealed around its neck, making it supple for more efficient performance during ignition as well as stronger over the course of successive reloads.
A fine choice for training and recreational shooting with an AR-15, and not remotely unsuitable for self-defense and varmint hunting either!
