- Q & A
Joyce Hornady founded Hornady in 1949 after noticing that the ammunition flooding the market following World War II was performing poorly. Regardless of a shooter’s skill the shots were failing, and Hornady decided the only solution was to manufacture the ammunition himself. Not only did he produce ammunition for himself, he chose to produce it for everyone, and his firm dedication to high quality and superior performance turned the company into the industry powerhouse it is today.
These particular Hornady rounds are meant for your .223-Remington chambered rifle. At 68 grain these are fairly lightweight rounds, which means they’re able to travel down-range at high speed and reduce felt recoil somewhat. These are Hollow Point Boat Tail, or HPBT, rounds and begin to expand at the moment of impact. Their BTs help them resist cross-winds and maintain a more balanced trajectory. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 2960 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 1323 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for varmint and small game hunting as well as target practice.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition you get 20 rounds. That’s just enough ammunition to get out on a hunt, so if you want to zero your scope and get some target practice in, order multiple boxes. These are brand new production, non-corrosive, brass-cased, boxer-primed rounds, so you can collect your spent brass, reload it, and get right back to shooting. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Grand Island, Nebraska. All ammunition is manufactured according to high standards and undergoes rigorous testing and strict quality control measures. Whether you’re looking to reduce the varmint population in your area or just want to get some target practice in, order now, and feed your gun.
