I picked up a couple of boxes yesterday, of the 69gr but, also could have bought 77gr version. Has anyone shot this stuff? It has sealed neck and primers with all the proper crimps and cannelure.

Cannelure. Is this a self defense load or a match round? Or both?

It's an offensive police/SWAT/ERT loading

SD load

How much is it going for?

I bought a box of the 77grain for 19.99 at alocal shop. It is by far the most accurate round I have used (yet) in my 20" RRA Var.

Ammoman has a 200rd. case of 77gr. around $150 (may be more or less).

These loads have crimps and cannelures? I thought this was a 77gr match load. Can you give a product code please?

I just checked Federal's website. This is TRU ammo. I wasn't aware of this line. Looks good. Is this available to civilians? If so, where from. Thanks.

Tactical Rifle Urban T223M and T223M3. I also looked at some 77 gr match rounds with out crimps and cannelure. The website has a misprint on the weight on 69 gr as a 62 gr.

Thanks Dutch, for the numbers. Is this an LEO-only load generally?

Its says LEO load, but I am not a LEO.

I just checked out the velocity and energy for this vs their standard and Hornady TAP (all are BT HP):

# Grain Velocity Energy
Federal
T223M 62(69) 3000 1380
T223M3 77 2750 1295
GM223M 69 3000 1379
GM223M3 77 2750 1293
Hornady TAP
80268 75 2790 1296

Which is the best for home defense?
It seems that the T223M may be the way to go as it has the most energy.

How does this shoot from my RRA with 1:9 16in bbl?
