I recently purchased this ammo for my Barrett Recon AR-15. I was looking for something with deep penetration and good terminal effects for hunting widefooted swamp ibexes that we have here in SW Florida. These ibexes are really tough animals to bring down, so I wanted a truly powerful round for my AR. I hate it when I have to empty a whole 30-round magazine into an ibex, only for it to wander off in the swamp and die a slow death. For that purpose this round did not disappoint. I took one of these ibexes last weekend, and it went down after the first shot. Later that morning I tried this round out on a nest of reticulated swamp beavers. I was able to take out 3 juveniles and 2 adults with one round each! This was awesome for a .223! I normally use my .45-70 on these wily creatures. Very fine ammo.
