Is this Hornady 223 any good?



Just bought a 50 rd box of Hornady 223 Rem 50gr SP at Academy for $29.99.

What the heck did I just buy?

Refresh my memory, I know the Hornady TAP is in a silver casing. Does your ammo have a red tip on a copper jacket or is it black?

Yea, have 200 rounds of it from Cabelas for a little less than that, but you prolly got me beat after shipping. Good stuff, and you can reload the brass

SP means Soft Point....therefore its a lead point not a red or black tip.

I don't think Hornady makes any bad stuff. At $0.60/rnd for SP that's about market price.

I posted links this AM to Cabelas and AIM, AIM was 500 rounds for $195 I think, but that shite sold out before I could finish posting. And AIM had Wolf sell out in literally a minute.

Cabelas seems to be updating their stock at 6am every morning

Slidell.

They had one more box of this and then several boxes of 223 Rem in 20 rds.

Glad to know I bought something worthwhile. I've got an AR lower on the way and will start building it out in a few weeks.

It was a solid buy. Not over priced and it will shoot straight.
