From the competitive shooter to the varmint and predator hunter, HPR's new line of .223 ammunition will leave you confident of your shot. HPR Ammunition is American Made. Components, including brass, primers, powder, and projectiles are assembled in the USA. Furthermore, personal inspection, and hand packaging is performed by US Citizens in Payson, Arizona.

HPR offers the .223 in 4 varieties: 55 Grain Full Metal Jacket, 60 Grain Soft Point Match Grade, 60 Grain V-MAX™ Match Grade and 75 Grain Boat Tail Hollow Point Match Grade. These loads feature extreme accuracy, HPR's proprietary HyperClean technology, and a powerful punch for the targets and varmints in your sights. While HPR mainly uses new brass, these four particular offerings feature factory processed Mil Spec brass that boasts tremendous accuracy. This accuracy makes them the choice of Match shooters and a favorite of many 3-gun competitors.
