50 Rounds of 55gr SP .223 Ammo by Hornady

40 Ready to Ship


For ammunition with truly deadly accuracy, turn to the company founded in 1949 by a man who spent World War II as a marksmanship instructor for the military. Joyce Hornady went into the ammunition manufacturing business because he got real joy out of the world of firearms. And now, more than 60 years later, the Hornady name has become synonymous with quality and trust. They use premium propellants and cartridge cases and only high quality raw materials in order to create ammunition you can count on for reliable performance. And, of course, the Hornady team uses careful quality control procedures and produces each round as if it were for their very own gun.

If you’re buying Hornady .223 rounds, you’re interested in superior trajectory and stellar velocity and energy. This ammunition has performed admirably in testing with the following results:

  • Muzzle trajectory: -1.50”
  • 100-yard trajectory: 1.50”
  • 200-yard trajectory: 0.00”
  • 300-yard trajectory: -7.30”
  • 400-yard trajectory: -22.60”
  • 500-yard trajectory: -49.10”

These are SP rounds, so they have excellent energy transfer upon impact. Soft points are great for hunting because they mushroom while penetrating more deeply, allowing for a more devastating wound track and a cleaner kill. Because these are 55 grain rounds, they’re rather lightweight for the .223 caliber, which enables them to move more quickly with a muzzle velocity of 3,240 feet per second. They hit hard, too, with a muzzle energy of 1,282 foot-pounds.

Hornady’s headquarters are in Grand Island, Nebraska, and all their ammunition is made in America. There are 50 rounds of ammunition in this box, so you can spend a successful day hunting game such as deer or put it to use improving your marksmanship skills. Avid hunters and marksmen praise its reliable feeding and ejecting as well as its grouping. Get some for yourself, and experience the Hornady difference.
