Joyce Hornady grew up hunting and shooting, which started a lifelong love of firearms and ammunition. During World War II he worked as a marksmanship instructor for a National Guard unit, and when the war ended he opened a retail store. The store did sell hunting and shooting gear and supplies, but as Joyce noticed the inferior quality of the ammunition that was coming out on the market, he knew he had to play a larger role in the industry. He got started making bullets with an associate but ended up going his own way, and in 1949 he used a surplus press to make .30 cal bullets. From those humble beginnings the now-legendary Hornady ammunition company got its start. 60 years later, their name is synonymous with excellence, and these .223 rounds are proof.
These are 52 grain rounds, making them very lightweight for the .223 Remington. They’re BTHPs and begin to expand immediately upon impact, penetrating as they expand to create a catastrophic wound channel. Their Boat Tails help stabilize them in flight and also enable them to resist cross-winds, so they’re a good choice for working on your longer-range shots. Each round flies from the barrel of your rifle at the muzzle velocity of 3330 feet per second and hits with enormous energy. This ammunition is ideal for target practice, tactical training, and varmint control.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Hornady you get 50 target rounds. Hornady produces this ammunition in new brass cases with boxer primer, so you can collect your spent casings, reload them, and hit the range again; they’re also non-corrosive, which is easier on your gun’s barrel. Your .223-chambered rifle is a powerful, versatile gun, but you can’t take full advantage of its versatility without practice. Hunting and home defense both require excellent shot placement, as does varmint control. This ammunition is manufactured at Hornady’s plant in Grand Island, Nebraska. Order now and feed your rifle top-of-the-line American-made ammunition.
