Default Hornady 5.56 75gr bthp superformance

Is this a pretty good round I am thinking of getting some to put in my stock pile or should I just get the bvac ammo in the same grain it's about 5 bucks cheaper a box? My rifle is a 1/7 twist.

Pretty good ammo for hunting. It will put a hole in a bobcat about the size of a golf ball. Me and my buddy use it for coyote hunting.

If you're not gonna hunt with it, don't get it.

I did some research and went with black hills 5.56 77gr OTM red box. I am going to get a couple hundred rounds a week until I feel I have plenty

Nearly any hornady high performance round is good for hunting out of a .223/5.56. So they should be good for SD.

I bought black hills ammo 55 grain. Its good for target practice. But my home defense ammo is another story. I will save that for the idiot who tries to break down my door. I only shoot brass through my Rock River. I would never shoot steel through it even though its so much cheaper. Just not willing to damage my gun due to being cheap.

How do you feel it will damage your firearm?
