The following is a press release from Liberty Ammunition
Liberty Ammunition is proud to announce the Silverado .223 Rem 55 grain cartridge was field-tested in the National Tactical Officers Association Member Tested and Recommended Program. The Silverado .223 Rem rifle cartridge received a score of 4.68 out of a possible 5 points. This lead-free 55 grain deep cavity hollow point was tested by NTOA members in various parts of North America and rated on a scale of zero to five in a variety of categories such as design, performance and quality.
All of the testing officers were impressed with the performance of the Silverado .223 Rem 55 grain. The field-testers observed that the cartridges ran flawlessly in their firearms with no failure to feeds (FTF) or malfunctions. The testing officer from Florida “first fired off some rounds one at a time to make sure everything cycled and ejected properly. No failure to feed or fire issues arose and the ejection pattern seemed consistent. I then did some rapid fire on semi-auto to look for the same things. Again, I had no issues with FTF or fire. I then went to full auto and fired off some bursts, again looking for the usual problems, but there were no issues.” While the testing officer from Wisconsin expected that the extra length of the rounds might cause issues with the cycle of operation of his .223, “when I fired my .223, I did not have any issues with malfunctions/stoppages. The rounds performed flawlessly…. I plan to purchase more rounds and use them as my home defense round.”
