.223 REMINGTON 62 GRAIN SOFT POINT~100% HAND-LOADED!!

$42.99

.223 Remington 62 Grain Soft Point- The .223 Remington is a sporting cartridge with the same external dimensions as the 5.56x45mm NATO military cartridge. It is loaded with a .224-inch diameter jacketed bullet, with weights ranging from roughly 40 to 90 grains (the 55-grain being the most popular). Pressure is the primary difference separating the .223 Remington and 5.56x45mm. The .223s are loaded to lower pressures and velocities compared to 5.56mm. Due to its lower pressure, you can safely fire .223 Rem. ammunition in a 5.56mm chambered gun; however, the same cannot be said in reverse.

The . 223 (and the AR-15 rifles that fire them) are not ‘weapons of war’. Both the cartridge and the rifle are very popular for hunting and home defense use. .223 is a common caliber for bolt action and single-shot rifles in addition to semi-autos. Barrel length helps determine a specific cartridge’s muzzle velocity. A longer barrel typically yields a greater muzzle velocity, while a short barrel yields a lower one. The first AR-15 rifles used a barrel length of 20″. In the case of the .223 Remington (M193), ammunition loses or gains about 25.7 ft/sec for each inch of barrel length, while 5.56×45 mm NATO (M855) loses or gains 30.3 ft/sec per inch of barrel length.

Choice Ammunition, and our 100% Hand-Loading techniques- produce a round of ammunition for the .223 that is demanded in big game and predator hunting. Accuracy, consistency and dependability are crucial at that final moments of your hunt. Choice Ammunition takes this responsibility seriously by meticulously weighing each powder charge with our proprietary formulas and temperature insensitive powders, seating the bullet at the exact length for optimal performance and test firing each and every lot of ammunition at an average of 500% over industry average. We have no high speed production machines- only passionate and dedicated load technicians pulling each and every handle, producing one round of ammunition at a time. 

The Bullet-

The Hornady InterLock is designed to be a devastating hunting bullet and nothing less. The InterLock Ring – a Hornady exclusive – ensures that the core and jacket remain locked during expansion. The InterLock retains more mass, energy and momentum after impact and transfers that energy to the target. Its reliable stopping power has earned the InterLock a worldwide reputation as a bullet for serious hunters.

    Barnes 6mm (.243") 72 Gr. Hollow Point Flat Base Varminator Bullets (Box of 100) - Precision Reloading

    ACCURATE – EXPLOSIVE – LEAD CORE. Back by popular demand and featuring the explosive DETON-A-TOR™ core. This lead-core classic hollow point design utilizes a scored nose cavity. A thin, tapered copper jacket fragments violently on impact vaporizing any varmint in its path.

  • .223 REMINGTON 40 grain Hornady V-Max

    .223 REMINGTON 40 grain Hornady V-Max Bullets feature a polymer tip which enhances accuracy and promotes devastating expansion. The tip raises the ballistic coefficient for faster velocity and helps to stabilize the bullet in flight. It also acts as a wedge, initiating bullet expansion.

    • Velocity 3660 fps
    • 100% Hand  Loaded

    The ideal combination of accuracy, expansion, and fragmentation.

    With its combination of proven materials, innovative design and streamlined profile, the Hornady V-MAX represent 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, even at velocities as low as 1600 fps.

    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 the 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 & FLAT BASE DESIGNS

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

  • .223 Remington 55 Grain Nosler Varmageddon Tipped~ 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)

Thank you for visiting Choice Ammunition!Home of Premium Ammunition- 100% Hand-Loaded in Western Montana.

As you may know, the ammunition and firearms industry is experiencing unprecedented times beginning with COVID 19 coming from China in early 2020. Some talked of defunding police departments about the same time, even as riots and lawlessness raged on in our cities with unrest. We then saw a very contentious presidential campaign and ultimately- an inauguration of what could be a very unfriendly 2nd Amendment administration controlling both houses of Congress. For these reasons and more, we see demand at all time highs in the industry, in addition to mass shortages of components. I personally do not see things changing any time soon either...

With this, we are doing everything possible to hand-load and get products shipped in a timely manner, but we cannot simply turn machines up like others! Any back-orders on this website that we allow, we feel will ship in a reasonable period of time and we are averaging about 2-3 weeks presently. However, we are reliant on our suppliers to deliver components to us also, and that can unexpectedly be delayed on occasion. When this happens, it is possible to see 30-60 days, and sometimes more- to get ammunition sent out to you. Please know, all backorders will be filled at the price you purchased the ammunition for. If you find something elsewhere- we are happy to cancel any order.

We try to answer all office calls and prefer calls over emails or social media. We ask you to please refrain from calling or changing your order unless it is absolutely necessary- keeping in mind the time-frames I mentioned above. Every call we answer removes the focus on sourcing components and loading/shipping your ammunition!  We promise to get your order out as soon as we possibly can- yet, ask that you please understand this crazy market we are all in- if indeed you are delayed!

We do not believe in price gouging or increasing margins in a market such as this- and we will do everything possible to remain competitive with “factory” ammo, while providing our premium hand-loaded ammunition to the market. It does appear that prices may increase this year however, as there is much volatility in pricing for our brass, bullets, powder and primers.

Thank you for considering Choice Ammunition if you are a new customer- and thank you for another order if you are returning. We truly appreciate all of you and have built our business from going the extra mile with our products and for our customers!
