In response to the growing trend of shooter preference for rifles in self-defense situations, Hornady has introduced a few popular rifle calibers into their Critical Defense line of ammunition. This 223 Rem ammo is extremely effective in home defense situations due to Hornady’s 55-grain FTX bullet. The FTX features a soft flex tip that facilitates wide expansion for effective terminal performance. The expansion of the FTX also decreases the risk of over-penetration despite a hasty muzzle velocity of 3240 fps.

Hornady builds these cartridges using reloadable nickel-plated brass casings, Boxer-primers, and low-flash propellants. Not only are the nickel-plated casings aesthetically pleasing, they feed and eject more smoothly than regular brass casings; this makes nickel-plated brass preferable in dangerous situations where reliability is of paramount importance.

If the time comes when you need to defend your family or your property, don’t gamble on the quality of ammunition you load into your Ar-15. Since 1949, Hornady has been producing some of the best ammo available and continues to innovate so they stay ahead of the curve. Order your 20-round box of this premium 223 Rem ammo today!
