223/5.56 x 45 Ammo in stock 2013 Buyers guide Available at Cobratac
Ammunition is what guns fire, but not all ammo is created equal. When confronted with a self defense situation, there are certain types of ammo and bullet designs that are considered better than others for stopping an assailant dead in his tracks. We are going to review a few, of the many, different kinds of 5.56X45mm/.223 ammunition available for use in a self defense situation. When it comes to selecting the proper cartridge, there are many things that one should consider before going out and plunking down some serious cash for some brass. First off, ammo prices are not as friendly as they used to be which is helpful to keep in mind when selecting different types of ammo for different applications. I personally would not pay over $1 a round for self-defense ammunition unless it was guaranteed to be a 1 shot, 1 kill round (which doesn’t exist).
There are several different bullet types that one should consider when searching for an acceptable self defense round, the two most common being hollow points and soft points. Hollow points and soft points are good self defense rounds because the bullets are designed to expand and sometimes break apart in your target, adding to the severity of the wound. Some full metal jacket bullet designs can enter a target and pass right through like a needle through fabric and if they do not hit a bone, major artery or organ, your adversary is most likely going to keep firing. Hollow points and soft points are constructed differently to address this problem and perform well against soft targets thanks to their design, with rapid expansion occurring due to a divot located in the nose of the bullet which, when hits, fills up with flesh and forces the bullet lips to peel back like a banana, shedding fragments as well as allowing the bullet to deposit more of its energy into what you’re shooting. These types of bullets create a bigger and much more severe temporary wound cavity, while fragmentation makes extraction of the bullet and its pieces that much more difficult.
