Federal 62 gr TBBC This is .223 Federal Tactical Bonded 62gr Soft Point Ammo. Considered by most experts to be the best .223 "barrier blind"round. 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 packed in 20rd. boxes.

This is essentially the same ammunition as Federal LE223T3, but in different packaging and at a lower cost. The cases may be brass rather than nickel-plated. The XM prefix likely represents that this is a government agency contract overrun that is permitted to sell in the civilian marketplace.

"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 Oakland, quite a few agencies here have been switching to general issue of Barrier Blind loads like the 55 & 64 gr Gold Dot loads, along with the 55 & 62 gr TBBC loads that previously saw more limited use." 5.56mm Duty Loads by Dr. Gary Robert in pistol-forums.com

Per Dr. Gary Roberts on the Tactical Forums in 2001: "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 entry or urban settings."

Most other acceptable LE barrier blind loadings are at .223 pressures, including the .223 55 & 62 gr Federal bonded JSP Tactical loads (LE223T1 & LE223T3)..." 5.56 mm Duty Loads" by Dr. Gary Roberts in pistol-forums.com

Also stated by Dr. Roberts: "The Federal 62 gr JSP Tactical (LE223T3) and Hornady 75 gr TAP are the only .223 bullets which we have tested which exhibit adequate terminal performance when fired out of barrel lengths shorter than 14.5 inches, however, effective engagement distance is limited compared to longer barrels."

If running 1/12 twist barrels, stick with the Federal 55 gr TBBC rather than this round, the 62 gr TBBC.
