Fiocchi’s newest cartridge kills vermin

Fiocchi, the world leader in defense, targeting and hunting ammunition, adds another specialized cartridge to its growing line of dedicated hunting ammunition. New to the Fiocchi Hyperperformance Hunt series is a .223 Remington cartridge designed for “lights out” performance on varmints.

The new .223 Remington cartridge is built on the same winning foundation as all centerfire cartridges in the Hyperperformance Hunt line: high-quality brass cases, reliable primers, carefully selected powder to ensure shot-to-shot accuracy, and bullets manufactured accurately than deliver the expected terminal performance. What separates the Hyperperformance Hunt .223 Remington from the rest is its lead-free hollow point projectile, part of Fiocchi’s EnviroShield initiative.

The Hyperperformance Hunt .223 Remington features the Barnes Varmint Grenade bullet. Based on a frangible copper and tin powdered metal core surrounded by a hollow point gold metal casing, the Varmint grenade is designed to fragment rapidly while delivering the full energy of the impact to the target. The result is a devastating terminal yield that typically leaves the hides relatively intact as the bullet rarely leaves the largest animals.

The new Hyperperformance Hunt .223 Remington joins a broad bank of Hyperperformance Hunt centerfire rifle calibers, including .243 Win, .260 Rem., 6.5 Creedmoor, .270 Win., 7mm-08, .300 BLK, . 308 Win., . 30-06 Sprg. and .300 Win. magazine
