.223 Rem Ammunition - 55 gr Jacketed
The .223 Remington is a cartridge with almost the same external dimensions as the 5.56×45mm NATO military cartridge. The name is commonly pronounced either two-two-three or two-twenty-three. It is loaded with a 0.224-inch (5.7 mm) diameter jacketed bullet, with weights ranging from 40 to 90 grains (2.6 to 5.8 g). While technically a bit less powerful and slightly different dimensionally than the 5.56 x 45mm the .223 REM is the US military’s infantry mainstay. Frangible .223 REM has allowed tactical teams to train in CQB environments with minimized ricochet and penetration.
