  • .223 Winchester Super Short Mag (WSSM)

    Extremely hard to find this round and impossible to find with the quality and consistency which we load!! Although the case design of the .223 WSSM is radically different from traditional cartridges, performance is much the same as other ultra velocity .224’s such as the .220 Swift, .22-250 and .22-243. All of these cartridges are capable of pushing .224” projectiles at speeds exceeding 4000fps and all are capable of outstanding accuracy when fired from a suitable platform.

    .223 WSSM (WINCHESTER SUPER SHORT MAGNUM)

    223 WSSMThe .223 WSSM (Winchester Super Short Magnum) was introduced in 2003 by the Browning Arms Company, and Winchester Arms. It is a shortened .300 WSM (Winchester Short Magnum) case necked down to accept a .224 caliber bullet. The .223 designation is a reference to the popular .223 Remington. It is currently the fastest production .22 caliber round in the world with muzzle velocities as high as 4,600 feet per second.

    Even before the cartridge was commercially introduced, many were claiming that it would be extremely hard on barrels, a “barrel burner” to say the least, and some still argue that it is a good varmint round for long distances but is very hard on barrels and is not good for medium game any farther than 200 yards.

    The Winchester-made Model 70 in .223 WSSM has not been revived in the new Browning-made Winchester Model 70s, but Browning has chosen to use chrome-lined barrels on all of its guns chambered for .223 WSSM and has introduced the .223 WSSM cartridge as a chambering in its A-bolt rifles. Browning rejects the charge that the .223 WSSM round is especially hard on barrels: “The .223 and .243 WSSM cartridges are said to ‘burn up’ barrels in as little as 300 rounds. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

    For those enthusiasts who have a need for velocity and stopping predators dead in their tracks, this caliber is an enticer for sure!  This caliber is a screamer with attitude!

    With its combination of proven materials, innovative design and streamlined profile, the V-MAX represents the pinnacle of what a specialized varmint bullet can achieve, offering straight-line trajectories, enhanced accuracy, dramatic expansion and explosive fragmentation at a wide range of distances and velocities.

    The industry’s leading varmint bullet with polymer tip and streamlined design results in flat trajectories. The concentricity of the match grade AMP® bullet jacket provides maximum accuracy at all ranges as well as explosive expansion.

    Product Features

    POLYMER TIP

    The secret to the explosive terminal performance of the V-Max® is a hollow cavity resting between the tip’s shaft and the body of the bullet. Upon impact, the hard shaft builds up speed and energy before driving into the core, causing the entire package to rapidly expand to the point of violent fragmentation, even at low terminal velocities.

    HIGHER BALLISTIC COEFFICIENT

    Hornady® combines the sharp, pointed polymer tip with the most aerodynamic profile for a high ballistic coefficient. The V-MAX® profile also provides the maximum bearing surface for added in-flight stability.

    SWAGED LEAD CORE

    The swaging process allows precise formation of the core up and around the tip, with a cavity under the tip’s stem. This allows the tip to build up energy before smashing into the core, causing dramatic fragmentation of the core and jacket.

    PRECISE BOATTAIL & FLATBASE DESIGNS

    Utilizing the proper base design provides incredible in-flight stability for long-range shooting.
