Full Metal Jacket Boat-Tail
These accurate, non-expanding bullets give you flat-shooting trajectory, leave a small exit hole in game and put tight groups in paper. They’re perfect for sharpening your shooting eye. And they’re famous for smooth, reliable feeding in semi-automatics.
Differences Between .223 and 5.56mm
There are small differences that make each of these calibers unique. Most notably are the standards in which pressure is tested and measured. You can put .223 ammunition into a 5.56mm chamber, but not the other way around due to these pressure variances.
