Undoubtedly one of our nation’s favorite cartridges, the .223 Remington is capable of hair-splitting accuracy in a properly built rifle, has enough velocity for a respectable trajectory, and with the heavier bullets with a higher BC, can resist wind deflection rather well.
Federal Premium has announced the addition of three loads to its American Eagle rifle line of ammunition.
We’re all familiar with the abundance of .223 ammunition available, and you should have read a story or two over the years about the accuracy potential of the .22-250, but from a hunter’s standpoint, which one comes out on top?
North America has a wide variety of huntable species, inhabiting many different types of terrain. While there are a few cartridges that can truly be called all-around choices, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with picking a cartridge that perfectly suits the game at hand.
For 2015, Federal Premium expanded its Trophy Bonded Tip hunting line to include the ever-popular .223 Rem. cartridge. American Hunter Editor in Chief J. Scott Olmsted got a look at the new addition to the line—which should be hitting stores now—late last year.
