All Purpose 223 Rem Bullet

Can you guess which load this is? This bullet penetrated 12 inches in 10% ordnance gelatin. I was shocked to learn about this load’s existence.

    That’s pretty respectable. Sounds like it might be a good factory round for those that want to use it on game larger than varmints. You should know a thing or two about the .223. I never really paid attention to who wrote which article in the reloading manuals until I went back to check data for the .223 and 55 grain bullets.

    I still want to try my 60 gr Partitions. Might have to go calling late Friday or early Saturday. These Kentucky coyotes had too easy of a winter. Time to thin them out a little.

  6. RG says:

    Is/will the bullet be available as a component for hand loading?

  7. gunwriter says:

    As of now it is not available as a component.

  8. RG says:

    OK. Thanks
