- Q & A
AR-15s have enjoyed immense popularity pretty much since the moment they first hit the market back in 1964. They can be used for just about anything from the joys of plinking to serious tactical training to hunting to home defense; if it can be done with a firearm, odds are your AR-15 can handle it. One common question that arises among AR-15 fans is the difference between .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO. It’s really quite simple: although the two rounds appear externally identical, they’re internally different. 5.56 NATO is loaded to a higher internal pressure, and they have a different length of chamber leade. That means that if your gun is specifically chambered for .223 Rem, you shouldn’t feed it 5.56 NATO, because the results could be disastrous.
These Winchester rounds are made for your .223-Remington chambered AR-15. At 60 grain these are quite lightweight, so they’re going to fly down-range at high speeds while still retaining stunning force. These are Winchester’s PDX rounds and expand on impact. As they mushroom they also decelerate, creating a large, permanent wound cavity. The slowing helps prevent over-penetration, which protects innocent bystanders. Each round has a muzzle velocity of X feet per second and a muzzle energy of X foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically made for home defense.
When you order this box of ammunition from Winchester you get 20 rounds which is enough to load your gun and be prepared to defend your castle. Keep in mind that defense rounds produce greater recoil than target rounds, so if you want to be sure you can make accurate shots, especially follow-up shots, you need to train with your chosen defense rounds. All Winchester ammunition is made in America according to high standards. Don’t trust the protection of your home to just any ammunition. Trust a legendary American company; trust Winchester.
