    Does anyone still make 40gr .223 JHP, non-ballistic-tip?

    I'm thinking along the lines of the old Federal P223V (formerly Federal "Blitz"), fragile HP with no plastic cap.

    I tried searching for some last night, but Google's policy of censoring firearm-related results from shopping searches really put a crimp in my ability to find a retailer.

    Perfect, thanks! Says they're expecting more 7/20, that'll work.

    After a quick bit of search looks like most are sold out of whit box and they are not in production ...damn sham...that was one wicked bullet...shot a rabbit once ...blew it in half...litterally...anyways i wouldnt count on midways estimated time...they just will keep pushing it back a month if they dont get it by then..had that problem before...said it will be in stock within a week...a month later it said the same thing as it did every week i checked

    I thought WWB was always 45gr and anyways I see plenty of it around still unless there is some other kind they stopped making.
