PMC Ammunition 55 Grain Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail (FMJ-BT) Ammo Details

Have you ever been five minutes late to feed a cat? Then you already know how noisy such an animal becomes when it is empty. But your poor AR-15 can’t make any noise at all until you have fed it! If you feel like you’ve been neglecting your favorite range toy lately, here’s the Korean-made 223 Rem ammo you need to rectify the situation.

PMC loads this cartridge with the 223’s ever-popular 55 grain full metal jacket boat tail bullet. At that weight the FMJBT reliably achieves a muzzle velocity of 2,900 fps, and its boat tail helps the bullet to retain a larger share of that velocity as it speeds farther and farther downrange.

The FMJBT’s jacket is 100 percent steel-free, so no worries if your favorite range prohibits magnetic ammo on its premises. The hard gilding metal jacket promotes syrupy smooth feeding in semi-auto rifles, although it leaves the bullet unable to deliver any degree of terminal expansion. It may fragment following higher-velocity impact. Still, a soft point will still serve you better if you’re looking for home defense ammo.

PMC is the South Korean military’s chief ammo supplier, but they recently loaded this ammo with the express intention of providing it to American civilians. Brass-cased, Boxer-primed, noncorrosive and reloadable, it checks off all the quality 223 boxes!
