Extreme Shock Offers New .223 Remington Round

Extreme Shock, best known for their fragmenting bullets and over-the-top advertising images, has a new .223 Remington round that they’re unveiling at the show. The ammo uses a 45ish grain bullet and is designed specifically for AR pistols with extremely short barrels. Rest assured, TTAG has secured a supply of Extreme Shock ammo and we will be putting it to the test very shortly.

According to the representative there, “we saw all of these pistol length ARs out there, and we realized that there’s no ammo out there designed specifically to be used with them.” They believe their lighter round will give them better “terminal ballistics” out of the shorter barrels than the heavier stuff, and have some fascinating blocks of ballistics gel to back it up.
