.223 Remington has been around since 1964, when it was first released to the market by Remington. The .223 Rem is loaded with bullets weighing anywhere between 40 and 90 grain with the most common weight being 55 grain, and despite its name the bullet is actually 0.224” in diameter. The cartridge was created as a sort of ballistic middle ground between its parent cartridge, the .222 Remington, and one of its predecessors, the .222 Remington Magnum. And while it was designed with external dimensions nearly identical to those of the 5.56 NATO, it’s loaded to a lower internal pressure than the 5.56, making it unwise to fire 5.56 rounds in guns chambered specifically for .223.
These .223 Rem rounds weigh 55 grain, which is both the most common weight for the cartridge size and also fairly lightweight overall. Being lighter weight gives it the ability to travel at higher speeds but does make it a poor choice for hunting game such as whitetail deer. These are Soft Point (SP) rounds, which begin to expand on impact at a slower rate than standard HPs, so they penetrate more deeply and create larger wound channels. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 3248 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1283 foot-pounds. Due to its weight this ammunition is best suited to hunting small-to-medium sized game and can also be used for target practice.
