It was 1964 when the .223 Remington was first introduced to fit the action of the M16. It’s come a long way since then; although it’s always enjoyed significant popularity, the rapidly growing AR-15 fan base has ensured the .223 has gotten even more love in recent years. The .223 was designed right between the .222 Remington and the .222 Remington Magnum from a ballistic perspective, and a common point of confusion is its similarity to the 5.56 NATO. Externally the .223 and 5.56 do appear quite similar, but internally the 5.56 is loaded to a far higher pressure, and there are also some internal structural differences. If your rifle is chambered for .223 Remington, feed it .223 Remington – and these Fiocchi rounds are a good quality choice.
Fiocchi has been in business since 1876; that’s almost 150 years of experience manufacturing quality ammunition for shooters just like you. Fiocchi got started right as breech loaders replaced muzzle loaders and black powder was dropped from the market, and thanks to founder Giulio Fiocchi, they flourished. They’re a NATO AQAP-110 Certified company and have their ISO 14001 and UNI EN ISO 9001 certifications as well. In addition, Fiocchi ammunition has been used to win World Cups and Olympic medals; there is plenty of proof that Fiocchi makes quality ammunition you can rely on. Production takes place at their plant in Lecco, Italy, and they also have a plant in Ozark, Missouri, for distribution in the U.S.
These are lightweight rounds at just 55 grain, and that means they’ll fly down-range like lightning. They’re FMJBT rounds, meaning they don’t expand on impact and, as with all target rounds, are prone to over-penetration. Rifle rounds can literally travel for miles before coming to a stop, so, as with all range time, you need to be well aware of what is behind your target. Because they have Boat Tails, they’re capable of maintaining a balanced trajectory and resisting cross-winds, so if you’re looking to hone your long-range skills, this is the ammunition for you. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 3240 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1281 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. You get a whopping 1000 target rounds in this can of ammo, so place your order, and hit the range.
