.223 FMJ is a common rifle round in Fallout.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from .223 round. To modify, please edit the source page.

The .223 Remington is a commonplace rifle cartridge, originally developed for the M16 service rifle of the United States Army. Adopted with slight modifications by the military as the 5.56x45mm military round, the original .223 ammunition gained widespread popularity among the civilian population. The common variant has a full metal jacket, offering good penetration without sacrificing damage. Its wide availability makes it a popular choice for wastelanders, due to the number of weapons that can accept the round.[1][2]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The .223 is affected by the common executable bug, where the ammunition modifiers do not work. This has been fixed in Fallout 2.

A FMJ bullet is very tough, and has pretty good penetration without sacrificing good expansion. In other words, it‘s an average round."
