55 gr BARNES TTSX LEAD-FREE - 3,100 fps/ME 1,173 ft-lbs
20 Round Box


With the 223 Remington being more popular than ever, we decided to make a load just for deer and medium-sized hog hunting. This load features a 55 gr. Barnes TTSX bullet @ 3,100 FPS from most 20 inch barrels. 16-inch barrels generally develop 3,000 FPS with this load. The Barnes TTSX bullet is a very stiff expanding bullet made of 100% copper. It is stiff and moderately mushrooms on flesh and bone out to about 400-500 yards, (with our muzzle velocities) depending on which bones are struck. It is therefore perfect for deer-sized critters and will normally exit on broadside shots and will still often exit on quartering shots. This is a very deep penetrating, expanding bullet.

Another advantage of using this stiff slow mushrooming bullet on fur-bearing critters is that unless you hit a big bone, the exit holes are small and little pelt damage is done.

“223’s” are fun as the rifles can be short and lightweight. Recoil is super low and any child or beginning shooter cannot be hurt or scared by the minimalist recoil.

This load will cycle in AR 15 platforms, single shots, and bolt actions—assuming normal operating condition of all three. This load is SAAMI compliant in every way……which means it is safe to use in EVERY/ANY firearm thus chambered that is in normal operating condition… need to email me and ask if it is safe to use in your firearm.

This all-copper bullet is long-for-it’s-weight, so a 1/9 or faster rate of twist is best for top accuracy. All of my 1/7,1/8 and 1/9 twist rate rifles, shoot this bullet accurately.

Below are real-world velocities fired from actual rifles, not extra-long laboratory barrels that give a false high velocity you’ll never see in hunting/service length rifles.


➤  3,092 FPS – 20-inch COLT HBAR (1980’s vintage)
➤  3,092 FPS – 20-inch NULA

Far be it from me to tell folks what to do, but I personally would not shoot any animals over 300 lbs. with any 223 Remington load, unless I brained them, and then the sky would be the limit on what size critter you can kill with any centerfire cartridge. I’ve killed many deer and varmints with various 223 Rem. loads. If the ammo is designed correctly, the 223 Rem. will work for hunting deer size game, however, when using any caliber as small as a 22, shot placement is more critical than shooting the same animal with something bigger, like an 06, etc.

Good shooting and God Bless

Zeroed in on a 10.5%u201D Ar-15 pistol. Shot a doe through the heart, completely missing the lungs. Tore up the heart pretty good. Seconds later put a shot in her neck and dropped her on the spot. Wish i didn%u2019t take the second shot and watched how far she would go but whatever. Shot was 18 yards broadside and after neck shot, she was only 30 yards from me. Will buy again.

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20


All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.

We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.

  1. Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.

  2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!

  3. We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.

  4. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.

These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Good shooting and God bless,

Tim Sundles
