Here is an excellent review and discussion of this cartridge by Molon: Sniper'sHide

Here is an update from Molon published 08/05/23: AR15.com

"There are two modern schools of thought regarding the selection of the type of projectile to use in a self-defense load; the first preferring a fragmenting, heavy (75-77 grain) OTM type bullet and the second opting for an expanding “blind-to-barriers” bullet. The top performers in the fragmenting, heavy OTM type  category are Hornady’s 5.56mm 75 grain TAP T2, the Nosler 77 grain Custom Competition and the new Black Hills Ammunition load utilizing the Sierra 77 grain Tipped MatchKing." AR15.com

"A 10-shot group of the 2023 lot of the Black Hills 5.56mm 77 grain Tipped MatchKing ammunition fired from the same Lothar Walther barreled AR-15 used to test the 2016 lot, fired under the same conditions from a distance of 100 yards had an extreme spread of 0.86” and a mean radius of 0.24”." AR15.com

Black Hills has again expanded its popular line of 5.56mm ammunition. Sierra 77 grain MatchKing bullets set the standard for long range accuracy in .223 and 5.56. World records have been set with those bullets, and MK262 ammunition loaded by Black Hills using MatchKing bullets has provided significantly increased capability to our nation's soldiers, sailors and Marines. Sierra has now further refined this bullet with the addition of a polymer tip which improves upon the external ballistics by significantly increasing ballistic coefficient from .373 to .420. What this means is that the new TMK projectile will be much more resistant to both drag and wind, meaning it will fly flatter and straighter in adverse conditions.The tip also improves terminal ballistics, increasing uniformity of performance and penetration when the projectile arrives on target. This new Tipped MatchKing is now offered as an additional Black Hills 5.56 load.

This ammunition is loaded with Lake City brass that has undergone factory annealing which extends brass life. As a result of the annealing process the neck portion of the brass may be discolored until the case is cleaned.

Please Note: While the 5.56x45mm NATO will fit in a .223 Remington chamber, the 5.56 is a military round that runs at higher pressures than its .223 counterpart and is not recommended to be fired in a .223 Remington chamber.
