Handgun reloading components and match ammunition maker Precision Delta expands its series of PDP Pro ammunition, adding .223 to the lineup.

The company announced the new performance 55 grain FMJ-BT .223 round in a press release Thursday, extending quality ammo to rifle  shooters. The PDP Pro series boasts a few handgun caliber options already, including .380 Auto, 9mm and 38 Special. The ammunition was developed for seasoned range-goers as well as competitive shooters and incorporates the best components available.

The .223 option is listed on Precision Delta’s website with a price of $350, but there’s no clarification on how many rounds shooters can expect for that price.

The company says it plans on continuing the line’s expansion, offering 40 S&W, 10mm, .45 ACP and .300 BLK to the PDP Pro series in the future.

Precision Delta began in 1982 and has grown from a garage setup into one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of pistol bullet components and remanufacturer of pistol ammunition.
