NPA HELO Defense / Hunting 62 grain 223 SBR

 Less Barrel Length No Longer Means Less Penetration

In response to the growing use of short barrel rifles, NPA has modified its 62 grain 223 HELO Defense / Hunting round by designing a solid copper projectile that will penetrate soft tissue to equivalent depths of the standard 223 HELO Defense / Hunting round but shot from a short barrel rifle. 

Utilizing proprietary design and engineering methods the NPA HELO Defense / Hunting SBR cartridge will penetrate to depths equal or greater than the standard HELO Defense 223.  Whether you are using the product for self defense or for hunting applications having a shorter barrel with less velocity will no longer mean less penetration when using the NPA HELO Defense / Hunting 223 SBR cartridge

The NPA proprietary HELO family of products was originally designed for law enforcement application and specifically engineered to performance specifications requested by law enforcement. Unlike bonded jacketed bullets, the HELO is formed from a solid piece of high-grade virgin copper. After a proprietary cavity is formed, the copper bullet is subjected to a proprietary manufacturing process which allows the projectile to achieve maximum penetration and expansion while retaining 100% of its weight through certified ballistic gel.

The HELO does not break apart like many other copper hollow point bullets seen on the market, giving it a significant advantage in strength and integrity.

    Shipping was fast and shot a box yesterday out of a Battle Arms Developmennt 10.5 inch barrel. No fireballs like I’ve had with other .223/5.56 loads. Very accurate. Great value for the high level of quality and thought of design and effectiveness. I’m no hunter but for self defense this would be perfect. SCHP has great stopping power. Their 9mm HPs are great as well.

    I want more of these rounds!! I have been using them for Hogs on my lease and they are great round for the job. They shoot clean and have great energy transfer.
