Browning didn’t reinvent the wheel when they designed this 223 Rem ammunition. It is loaded to American AR-15 owners’ favorite specs, and it is a versatile choice for target shooting whether your targets are nearby cans, medium range cardboard silhouettes or distant gongs!
Although it is a 223 Rem, this round is loaded pretty much identically to the Armed Forces’ M193 cartridge. Its 55 grain FMJ issues out of a rifle barrel at 3,240 fps, placing its G1 ballistic coefficient at approximately 0.243. In plain speak that means you’ll get the accuracy to need to train to the best of your abilities. Browning’s American-made bullets are comprised of solid lead cores and copper alloy jackets – no steel to be found in this nonmagnetic ammo!. 55 Grain FMJ
Browning’s brass cases are fresh out of the factory. You will see where the brass has been discolored by the annealing process, which made it stronger for reloadability’s sake and supple to seal off the chamber more effectively during ignition. Non-corrosive Boxer primers and clean-burning powder bring an all-American round all together. Ideal for target practice, but not to be overlooked if you ever need a quick solution for self-defense!
This cartridge features the semi-auto’s quintessential FMJ bullet. It’s comprised of a solid lead core and hard gilding metal jacket, so there’s no steel in there to get it barred from use at indoor ranges. At 55 grains the round’s 3,180 fps muzzle velocity is just about average as can be, with a 0.250 G1 ballistic coefficient that yields a level trajectory. There’s no expansion-promoting features to an FMJ, although the cannelure circling its shank will help prevent the bullet from creeping back or forth in its case before it is fired.
This cartridge’s case is made of brass and fresh from the factory. People ask all the time if the gray on this ammo’s cases means they are reloaded, but that’s a totally normal marking for military-grade brass. It just means it has been annealed, a process which fortifies brass and makes it able to more reliably return to its original dimensions after ignition. Winchester loads consistent and non-corrosive primers for reliable, clean ignition.
