Suitable for your rifle chambered for 5.56, our .223 is great for everything between range-day plinking to small game hunting.
Brass: Reconditioned or New
*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

First time out with the 77 grain through my 16" 1:7 twist Alpha Shooting Sports CHF upper. Some of the other groups from that day. Second trip out, still awesome considering I was using a Holosun ACSS red dot
Very accurate and 100% reliable in my Alpha Shooting Sports 16" CHF 704 Tactical July 2017 special upper with a 1:7 twist shooting their 77 grain 5.56 match ammo. Was getting sub-MOA and one hole groups at 100 yards with a 15x optic and about MOA with a red dot and 3x at the same range. Zero failures and having recently tried their 69 grain .223 rem match ammo was producing about the same results at 100 yards with those optics. Excellent value and quality plus super fast and cheap flat rate shipping you can not go wrong with Defender Ammunition Company.
