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.

    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.

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