    Federal .223 75gr TMJ - AE223T75

    Anyone have experience with the Federal American Eagle .223 75gr TMJ - AE223T75? This looks to be a new offering from them. If so, how is accuracy and how well does its POI compare to Speer's 75gr Gold Dot?

    For 39 cents per round I think it could be a good training ammo if it shoots the same as the Gold Dots.

    The .223 came out right after the Valkyrie round was released. Kind of like saying “F it, we’ll make a .223 too since we’ve got the bullets anyway”

    I’ve got a couple boxes to fool around with but haven’t gotten the range time yet.
    AQ planned for years and sent their A team to carry out the attacks, and on Flight 93 they were thwarted by a pick-up team made up of United Frequent Fliers. Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand

    Velocity looks to be around 2560 from a 16" barrel.

    Kinda slow but nbg for 300 yards and in. I get 2630 average out of 24 grains of Ramshot Tac under a Hornady 75 HPBT, and could probably push another 0.5 grains safely.
