Great Bottleneck Cartridges from Ammunition Depot Bottleneck cartridges aren’t exactly rare. In fact the bulk of modern rifle cartridges are bottlenecked. The advent of modern ballistics has determined that the penetration and performance of a bullet is more important than its size. This means that firing a marginally smaller projectile with more propellant is generally more effective for hunting or defense than a larger slower round. As such an effective way to throw a smaller projectile farther faster and harder than would otherwise be possible is by necking a cartridge down. While everyone who’s in the know is aware that Ammunition Depot is the best place to get bulk 9mm ammo it’s also the top source for some of the best bottleneck ammo on the market. The focus here is bottleneck cartridges that are used in both pistols and rifles. .223 Remington/5.56 NATO: AR-15 The .223 Remington/5.56 NATO cartridge is the most popular rifle cartridge on the market. It is the caliber 5.56 NATO favored by most of the Western world’s military for decades now. Its popularity is based on its effectiveness and flat straight trajectory. Obviously .223 5.56 ammo is the foundational cartridge for millions of carbines around the world but it is also used in AR- 15-style tactical pistols. 5.57x28mm: FN Five-seveN The 5.57x28 bottleneck cartridge was developed by the legendary weapons manufacturer FN Herstal in response to a request from NATO to develop an alternative to the 9mm Parabellum. The request included a caveat that the bullet is capable of defeating armor-piercing. The resulting 5.57x28mm cartridge chambered for the FN Five-seveN pistol and FN P90 personal defense weapon delivered. Civilian versions of the cartridges that don’t defeat body armor are available from Ammunition Depot as is the FN Five-seveN.

7.62x25mm: Tokarev and CZ 52 For several decades the 7.62x25mm bottleneck pistol cartridge was as ubiquitous in the Eastern Bloc as amazing deals on bulk .223 ammo are at Ammunition Depot. It was most famously chambered for the Russian Tokarev military side arms and the Czech CZ 52. The Russians and their Eastern European no-longer-Soviet-satellite states have since switched over largely to 9mm but the 7.62x25mm has found something of a new life. It’s quite a powerful handgun cartridge defeating lighter ballistic vests with ease and the CZ 52 is particularly well- suited for handling “hot” loads. .357 SIG: Various Weapons There are a number of both carbines and handguns chambered for the .357 SIG. This bottleneck mostly-handgun cartridge was meant to reproduce the performance of the .357 Magnum thumper but sized for use in higher-capacity semi-automatic pistols that aren’t Desert Eagles. The .357 SIG was adopted and is still used by a number of law enforcement agencies many of whom swear by it for terrific accuracy and performance. It’s just one of the great bottleneck cartridges carried by Ammunition Depot. Load up with the best guns and ammo available from Ammunition Depot at https://www.ammunitiondepot.com/
