.223 Remington rounds have been around since 1964 when they were originally created for the M16. The cartridge is a ballistic fit right between its predecessors, .222 Remington and .222 Remington Magnum. Not long after it was introduced to the military, the AR-15 came out for commercial use, and the cartridge immediately began to climb to significant popularity. While the .223 Remington is used for everything from target shooting to 3-gun, it maintains serious use as a varmint round. It comes as no surprise it’s widely used for varmints considering its speed and the fact that it’s large enough to wreak havoc on small game and pests. If you use your .223 Remington for varmints, you need the right rounds to go with it, and that’s where these Australian Defense Industries rounds come in.
These particular .223 Remington rounds weigh in at 69 grain, making them lightweight overall but in the middle of the standard weight range for the cartridge size. Being so light is what gives these rounds the ability to zip down-range at such incredible speeds and also why the rifles chambered in this caliber have easily manageable felt recoil. These are Boat Tail Hollow Point, or BTHP, rounds and deliver rapid energy transfer and expansion on impact, mushrooming while simultaneously decelerating to create a large, devastating wound cavity. These rounds leave the barrel of your AR with a muzzle velocity of 2959 feet per second and impact targets with excellent knockdown power. This ammunition is meant for hunting varmints and small game.
There are 200 rounds in this case of ammo. You’ll receive 10 boxes of 20. That’s enough to keep you well stocked for awhile as a varmint hunter, and since these are fresh brass cased rounds with boxer primer, you can also collect your spent casings and reload them. With 200 rounds you can zero your optics, get some target practice in, and load your magazines for your next hunt. This ammunition is manufactured by Australian Defense Industries at their factory in the Australian outback according to SAAMI or CIP specifications.
