Depends on what you're shooting it out of. If you're shooting an AK or cheap AR then steel is ok. If you have a high-dollar AR then probably stick to brass.

For me it's Federal Fusion MSR ammo for hunting and for target/plinking I use Federal or PMC FMJ.

Chad's son was wearing out 500, 600, and 700 on my range this Monday with .223 ammo he loaded.

Cheap steel cased stuff, or handloads.

Steel....NEVER, lacquer coated...NEVER

for bulk shooting I like the American Eagle and Fiocchi. have a bunch of mags loaded with this for when the Zombies come to take what's mine.


Everything else is handloads for LR accuracy

Hand loads.

But seriously, there are about a thousand different 223 ammo types to choose from. What are you shooting at?

Both shooting for fun but also hunting.

I like xm193 FMJ for the range. It shoots pretty well for me. For hunting ammo, you're on your own. It will be hard to find and expensive. I hand load 60gr Partitions for hunting, but rarely use the 223 for hunting.

Speer Gold Dot if you can get the LE hookup. Very accurate, for what it is, & top shelf for blind barrier rounds in a 223/556.

I really like Hornady 55gr Soft Point training ammo for just about everything.
