A skill worth mastering with your rifle is the tactical reload. The .223 is often used for home defense, and if you use yours to defend your castle, knowing how to reload more quickly is not only useful but vital. In high-stress situations you’re not going to be counting how many rounds you’ve fired, so if you’re fighting for your life and realize you’re probably running low – or you’re out – do a tactical reload. The first thing you do is grab a fresh mag – and no, do not eject the old one yet – and prepare to swap them out. You can change mags one of two ways, today we’ll go over the side-by-side grip. Hold the fresh mag firmly and grasp the spent mag with the same hand, using your pointer finger between them to keep them apart. Eject the spent mag and simply pop the new one in place. Doing it smoothly and quickly will take some time, but you’ll get it.
These are 75 grain rounds, making them moderately weighted for the .223. They’re light enough to zip down-range like lightning yet still heavy enough to do some damage. These are BTHP rounds – Boat Tail Hollow Point – and expand on impact; their Boat Tail also enables them to resist cross-winds more effectively, making them an option for longer-range shots. Each of these rounds leaves the barrel of your gun with the stunning muzzle velocity of 2790 feet per second and impacts your target with serious strength at a muzzle energy of 1296 foot-pounds. This ammunition is match-grade and capable of superior grouping and accuracy. It’s made for competition and performs reliably.
