History of Hornady 5.56 Ammo

Why Buy Hornady 5.56 Ammo?

Since 1949, Hornady Ammunition has been at the forefront of cartridge and bullet technology. Even today, Hornady Ammo holds true to J.W. Hornady’s standards on accuracy: 10 bullets in the same hole.

Developed in 1980 by FN Herstal, the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge has been the standardized round for the US military and NATO allies for decades. The round is perhaps the most popular centerfire round in North America thanks to the proliferation of the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle in addition to other rifles like the Ruger Mini-14, Tavor, SCAR 16S, and Kel-Tec RFB.

One of the greatest things about the 5.56 NATO is that it is relatively inexpensive compared to other centerfire rounds and availability is extremely high.

Hornady offers multiple lines of 5.56 ammo that meet the needs of shooters, sportsmen, and weekend plinkers alike.

If you’re looking for the best self-defense rifle round, then look no further than Hornady Critical Defense 5.56 or the Hornady 5.56 Superformance firing a 55 gr FTX bullet.

For general plinking, you can always rely on Hornady Frontier 5.56. Available in multiple bullet weights, Hornady Frontier 5.56 is great for punching holes in paper, tin cans, and Tannerite. If you’re looking for an amazing Hornady Frontier 5.56 review, then you’ve come to the right place because our AR-15s absolutely love this stuff. Select from the classic 55 gr FMJ or 62 gr FMJ for the true 5.56 NATO experience. Or if you want to reach out and touch something at long range, consider the Hornady Frontier 5.56 loaded with a 75 gr BTHP match bullet.

However, if whitetail deer are in your sights, then you should seriously consider Hornady 5.56 Deer Hunting ammo. The Hornady 5.56 Black 75 grain InterLock cartridge is our favorite round for hunting whitetail with a 5.56 NATO cartridge. These bullets expand rapidly when they impact soft tissue and pack enough stopping power to put down a deer.
