Liberty Ammunition Selling .224 Silverado Bullets

Liberty Ammunition bullets

Liberty Ammunition is now selling the .224 caliber bullets it uses in the company’s Silverado line of .223 Rem ammunition.

The .224 caliber bullets are monolithic copper hollow points that weigh 55 grains. Due to the density of copper, these bullets are longer than a typical copper jacketed lead 55 grain bullet. Liberty Ammunition suggests that rifles with a barrel twist rate of 1:9″ or faster be used when shooting rounds loaded with these bullets.

The copper bullet has a nickel plating to increase lubricity and reduce copper fouling. Bullets have a sectional density of 0.157 and a ballistic coefficient of 0.195. The suggested retail price of these bullets is $29.99 for a bag of 50.

    So are these expanding hollow points or ballistically superior hollow points?

      Neither, they’re for killing supernatural monsters.

        Like teen wolf?

        But there is so silver. The Winchesters disapprove.

    • Lead free nickel plated. Meant for reloads in .223 remington.

    Is this .224 BOZ or some other form of .224? There’s at least 4-5 variants. This article forces a bit too much google mining for anybody not familiar with the caliber, let alone which specific .224 caliber.

    • These are simply individual projectiles. You can use them to load any centerfire .22 cartridge of your choice that has an appropriate velocity and/or twist rate.

      • I think you mean .223 Rem ammunition.These are so one can do reloads on the silverado .223 rem ammo sold by liberty. Price for a bag of 50 is seven bucks less then a box of 20 complete silvarado rounds from the factory.

        • Yes, .223 Remington would be the obvious choice. However, they would also likely work in a .22-250, .220 Swift, or .223 WSSM if your barrel had an adequate twist rate.

            Don’t forget subsonic 5.7!

          • Would likely be too long due to the density of copper. This should be about as long as a 70gr lead projectile.

    • These are bullets, not cartridges. .224 caliber bullets are the standard bullet size for loading .223 Remington and other cartridges. I apologize if the article was unclear that the new product was bullets and not cartridges.

        Also 5.7×28, .22-250, .223 WSSM, and so on.
