Fmj/bt for plinking. Hornady a-max is good. Little hard to buy anything 55gr .223 right now. Most places are out of stock.

Boat tailed bullets for accuracy and flat base for plinking, Rem, Win, Horn have fmj and soft points for plinking cheap. If you look for more accuracy I look at the Amax by Hornady or Sierra's match grade. I shoot a lot of Nosler 55 bt.

History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
Douglas MacArthur

If you think a strong military is expensive, think about what a weak one would cost

ive been using winchester FMJ 55gr. works decent enough for plinking and targets.. have hornady 69 and 75 gr on the shelf when the time calls for threading the needle. hehe
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
