Marlin 223 Rem FMJ 55 gr

The Marlin 223 FMJ 55 gr is a type of ammunition designed for use in rifles chambered for the .223 Remington cartridge. It is a Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) round, meaning that the bullet is completely encased in a copper jacket, with a lead core inside. The 55-grain weight refers to the weight of the bullet itself.

This type of ammunition is commonly used for target shooting, plinking, and varmint hunting. The FMJ design allows for a higher degree of accuracy due to the uniformity of the bullet's shape and weight. Additionally, the copper jacket helps to prevent fouling in the rifle barrel, which can reduce accuracy over time.

The Marlin 223 FMJ 55 gr is a popular choice among hunters and target shooters alike due to its affordability, reliability, and versatility. It is capable of delivering good accuracy at medium range and is particularly effective for small to medium-sized game, such as coyotes, prairie dogs, and groundhogs. Overall, the Marlin 223 FMJ 55 gr is a reliable and effective ammunition option for a wide range of shooting applications.
