5.56 x 45 (5.56 NATO)
Brass: New or Reman (choose below)
*IMPORTANT: Though both cartridges look identical, 5.56 is loaded to a higher pressure than .223, which is why rifles chambered for a 5.56 cartridge can fire .223, but it is not recommended that 5.56 cartridges are fired out of a rifle chambered for .223
*Please note: a magnet will pick up metals used as binding agents for this projectile. THIS IS NOT STEEL and any indoor range with some degree of ammunition knowledge will recognize a frangible projectile immediately. However, there are some that will insist that anything magnetic IS steel and won't let you shoot it. Please make sure your range is on-board with frangibles before you purchase these.

Recently used the 77gr in a scoped rifle class using a 1-6x scope in a 14.5" AR. Was able to hit out it 600yd on 12x24" steel pretty regularly and was one of 5/12 students to make a clean run from 100,200,300 & 400 yd in under 20 sec. Couldn't be more happy with performance like this.
Perfect in every way! Thanks!
Got an email asking for a review. Kinda pathetic. 3 stars - whatever.
Top notch every time. Best in the business.
Easy buying experience. Top notch ammo. Hoping as the shortage comes to an end that I’ll be able to get more.
