.223 Remington 50 Grain Speer TNT Hollow Point with LAPUA BRASS!~ The development of the cartridge which eventually became the .223 Remington was intrinsically linked to the development of a new lightweight combat rifle. The cartridge and rifle were developed by Fairchild Industries, Remington Arms and several engineers working toward a goal developed by U.S. Continental Army Command (CONARC). Early development work began in 1957. A project to create a small caliber high velocity (SCHV) firearm was created. Eugene Stoner of ArmaLite was invited to scale down the AR-10 (7.62 mm) design. Winchester was also invited to participate. The parameters requested by CONARC were:
- .22 caliber
- Bullet exceeding supersonic speed at 500 yards
- Rifle weight 6 lbs
- Magazine capacity of 20 rounds
- Select fire for both semi-automatic and fully automatic use
- Penetration of US steel helmet one side, at 500 yards
- Penetration of .135″ steel plate at 500 yards
- Accuracy and ballistics equal to M2 ball ammunition (.30-06 M1 Garand)
- Wounding ability equal to the M1 Carbine
