The .223 Remington has been around for more than fifty years, and it’s only gotten more popular the longer it’s been around. It’s a versatile round, fantastic for fun days of plinking, effective for home defense, and powerful enough for hunting varmints and game up to the size of whitetail deer. If you use yours for personal protection, try this rifle drill. Set up three targets about two feet apart and stand five yards away. Stand with the rifle butt up, muzzle down, and either have a friend operate a buzzer or start on your own. Start at the far left target, firing one round, then two rounds to the middle target and three rounds to the far right target, at which point you move back to the left, firing four rounds to the middle target and five rounds to the far left target. Only center hits count; work on both speed and accuracy.
These are 62 grain rounds, so they’re fairly light for the .223 Remington. Because they’re lighter weight they’ll reach higher speeds, and don’t be fooled into thinking they’re weak; they’re still powerful rounds. This is Soft Point ammunition, so it delivers rapid energy transfer and begins to expand the moment it strikes the target, expanding as it slows down to create a large, devastating wound cavity. Each round goes zipping from your rifle’s barrel with excellent speed at a muzzle velocity of 3045 feet per second. This ammunition is great for varmint hunting and target practice.
There are 20 rounds in this box of ammunition from Brown Bear. Brown Bear is a subsidiary of the Barnaul Machine Tool Plant, which has been in business since 1869. The company was started by order of Aleksander I, who was then the Emperor of Russia. Barnaul moved several times over the years but settled in Barnaul, Russia, during World War II, and they remain there today. In order to save you money this ammunition is produced with steel cases that are coated in a special lacquer for consistent cycling and a longer shelf life. If you want to keep your rifle fed without emptying your bank account, these Brown Bear rounds are a good option.
(This ammunition is steel-cased. Some ranges do not allow rounds with steel cases, so make sure you double check before trying to use this ammunition at your area range.)
