Ammunition maker Hornady introduced an all-new ammo line known as the Frontier Cartridge available in .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO.

The ammunition, due out in February 2018, is designed for an array of uses to include plinking, target shooting, hunting and self defense. Delivering full metal jacket, hollow points, and match grade, the series runs the gamut on options. The .223 Remington cartridges looks to offer 55 grain and 68 grain loads while the 5.56 NATO rounds come in 62 grain, 68 and 75 grain loads.

Hornady says the new line of ammo adheres to the company’s standards and is produced utilizing state-of-the-industry loading techniques and quality control procedures. Hornady’s rigorous standards ensure that each cartridge delivers reliable, consistent performance for shooters no matter their objective.

The Frontier line will be available in a bevy of box sizes and counts to accommodate shooter needs with many of the offerings shipping in 20 count, 150 count, 500 count and 1,000 count.

No word yet on exactly what price point the Frontier line will occupy.
