Extreme Shock Ammunition Adds Two .223 Rounds

CLINTWOOD, Va. – Extreme Shock Ammunition has added the .223 100-grain Short Ranged Tactical (SRT) to its line of hunting and tactical ammos and the .223 55-grain CT-2 (Copper Training/Tactical) to its lead free “green” ammo selections.

The SRT was engineered for Close Quarters Combat (CQB) applications and training purposes. The SRT’s 100-grain projectile is a frangible, lead-free design that will fragment on harder surfaces that would typically cause a lead-core bullet to ricochet.

This projectile consists of a compressed tungsten powder core that is encased in a copper jacket, with a special DuPont coating to reduce the velocity. The dense tungsten core allows it to penetrate less dense materials while still remaining frangible.

The velocity of this design allows it to travel slowly enough to penetrate windshields without deflection, yet fast enough to still fragment inside a soft target.

The 223 55 CT-2 will allow ranges to operate on expensive target steel without fear of steel damage or injury from ricochet. The CT-2 projectile is encased in a copper jacket and topped with a green ballistic tip to aid in fragmentation and identification.
