As World War II came to a close the commercial market was flooded with ammunition. It didn’t take long for Joyce Hornady to notice the poor performance of that ammunition; no matter who the shooter was, no matter how skilled they were, the ammo just didn’t get the job done. Not by a long shot. After giving the problem some thought Joyce Hornady decided to simply make his own high-quality ammunition – not just for himself but for everyone interested in buying it. That was more than 60 years ago and today Hornady has a stellar reputation in the industry.
These Hornady rounds are manufactured for your 5.56x45mm. Each round is 55 grain which is lightweight but within the most common weight range for this cartridge. Being lighter enables them to race towards targets at higher speeds than their heavier counterparts and also keeps felt recoil manageable. These are Hornady GMX rounds, topped by monolithic, copper alloy bullets that begin to expand upon impact. They deliver 95% weight retention and create a catastrophic wound cavity. This ammunition is meant for hunting game the size of whitetail deer.
When you order this box of ammunition from Hornady you get 20 GMX rounds. This box is a great size for carrying in your pack or even in your pants-leg pocket out on a hunt. It’s also a nice size for stacking in your gun safe for later use, because as a hunter it pays to be prepared. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 3130 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1196 foot-pounds. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Grand Island, Nebraska, according to strict standards of quality and performance.
