Federal Ammunition 77 Grain Hollow-Point Boat Tail (HP-BT) Ammo Details

Federal doesn’t spare an opportunity to make a cartridge from their Gold Medal line of ammunition as accurate as can be. The 223 Rem round features its manufacturer’s best brass casing, propellant that is formulated to provide almost no deviation in chamber pressure or muzzle velocity, and a Gold Medal primer that provides benchrest-quality ignition with every kiss of a firing pin.

For this round’s bullet, Federal turned to Sierra, one of the world’s leading authorities on target shooting projectiles. The MatchKing features a match jacket that is concentrically drawn to an extent where finding some deviation in its thickness would require a science lab. Its boat tail and narrow hollow point meplat both enhance its ballistic coefficient to an impressive .372, which gives a competitive shooter the means to send the MatchKing through any bullseye they could get in their crosshairs. The MatchKing has won countless competitions -- more than any other bullet.

    Outstanding match 223 round. Always consistent in my AR15’s. As usual Federal makes a reliable rifle round at a great price for the performance they deliver.

    Amazing ammunition. <br />
    <br />
    I decided to use this ammunition after I was told my LWRC M6A3 DMR had a barrel twist of 1 : 7 and could stabilize them. Couldn't be anymore true. Great groupings, with the help of a zero, shot perfectly. No flaws at all.
