More Details About Our 500 Rounds of 55gr HP .223 Ammo by Hornady
This ammo has non-reloadable steel cases. Please do not order this ammo if you want reloadable brass cases.

Got something real interesting in stock for you today, brother. Hornady Steel Match! Some of the very few American-made steel-cased 223 Rem cartridges on the planet.

What’s the point of this ammo’s steel cases? One thing and one thing only: cost reduction. Steel cases don’t contain any copper, which is the sole reason why this ammo carries an appreciably lower price tag. The steel cases are outfitted with Berdan primers (noncorrosive), which is yet another reason why you should not even think about attempting to reload the steel cases. The cases are also coated with lacquer. It protects the underlying steel against corrosion, and also reduces friction to promote smoother cycling through a semi-automatic.

This round’s 55 grain hollow point bullet is Hornady’s usual high-quality work. Importantly, the bullet does not contain steel and will not attract a magnet. The hollow point’s nose cavity isn’t functional after impact (i.e. no terminal expansion). But it is a flat-shooting and accurate little projectile all the same, which should exhibit -7” drop at 300 yards (assuming 200-yard zero and 1.5” sight height).
