Law Enforcement Tactical line of ammunition is a restricted item, and is not
usually available to the general public.
This is .223 Federal LE Tactical Bonded 55gr Soft Point Ammo.
Considered by most experts to be one of the the best .223 "barrier
blind" rounds. The Tactical Bonded Rifle Ammunition is another Federal
product made exclusively for law enforcement. It achieves accuracy and
terminal performance unmatched by any other ammunition. Designed to
defeat the toughest barriers with minimal deflection or deviation for
the most intense situations, Tactical Bonded has quickly become the
choice for some of the most intense conditions. This ammo is packaged in
This bonded bear claw JSP round is designed not to fragment. Its
strength lies in its ability to penetrate barriers including windshields
and walls with minimal deflection or deviation, and then deeply
penetrate and expand in tissue located well behind the barrier.
"However in the wake of the serious terminal performance failures by
non-bonded .223 64 gr JSP's due to inadequate penetration into the
criminal's Toyota Tundra truck in the July 2010 CHP OIS incident in

"In 1/7 twist barrels, we've seen the current 5.56 mm FBI 62 gr version
(XM556FBIT3) run 1-2" for 10 shots at 100 yds, while the .223 62 gr
version (LE223T3) has historically run in the 2.5-3.5" range for the
same test. Interestingly, the .223 55 gr version (LE223T1) has run in

Dr. Gary Roberts
For LE Patrol use, where there is a high incidence of potential
engagements around or involving vehicles, ammunition that is able to
effectively penetrate intermediate barriers, particularly vehicle glass
is critical. The best LE 5.56 mm/.223 loads for intermediate barrier
penetration are the 62 gr Federal bonded JSP Tactical (LE223T3) and the
similarly performing 55 gr Federal bonded JSP load (Tactical--LE223T1 or
identical Premium Rifle--P223T2).
Dr. Gary Roberts
"The ONLY .223 load we shot which offered adequate penetration after
shooting through automobile windshields was the Federal 62 gr Tactical
(LE223T3). The trade off is that the Federal Tactical does not
fragment, maintains the deepest penetration of any .223 bullet after
penetrating walls, and as a result, may not be the best choice for
or urban settings. (The older Federal 55 gr
Tactical (LE223T1) for 1/12
twist weapons offers the same type of deep penetration and performance

"There is little difference between the terminal performance of the 55 and 62 gr TBBC bullets." Dr. Gary Roberts
running 1/12 twist barrels, stick with this round, the Federal 55 gr TBBC, rather than
the 62 gr TBBC.
