The .223 Remington cartridge was designed in 1964 by none other than Remington and quickly became an extremely popular round due in part to the creation of the AR-15. There are two basic types of rifles chambered for .223: varmint rifles, which tend to be bolt-action, and semi-auto’s like the AR-15. They’re widely used in law enforcement and are used by civilian shooters for home defense, hunting, and, of course, plinking. It’s understandable that it’s such a popular round, after all, it’s a powerful round being fired from an enjoyable rifle; if you own a rifle chambered in .223, don’t let your gun go hungry. Feed it this ammunition from Sellier and Bellot.
Sellier and Bellot was founded in 1825 by Louis Sellier, who was joined soon after by his fellow countryman Jean Maria Nicolaus Bellot. The company took off quickly; by 1830 they’d make more than 60 million percussion caps, and by 1837 that number had topped 156 million. It wasn’t long before they began to distribute their products more widely, and today their ammunition is sold all over the world. Their plant is located in Vlasim, Czech Republic, and they’re now a subsidiary of CBC, a company of worldwide renown for their production of ammunition.
These are lightweight 55 grain rounds, so they’ll zip to your target with impressive speed. They’re Soft Point rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact; as SP’s their expansion is slower than an HP, so they create bigger wounds. SP’s can also be used in areas where HP’s are illegal. This ammunition is good for varmint hunting and can also be used for target practice. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 3301 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1331 foot-pounds. There are 20 rounds in this box; just enough to give you a taste of Sellier and Bellot’s quality and performance and bring you back wanting more. Don’t want another second to feed your AR-15; order now.
