I keep a couple magazines loaded with Winchester 223 Remington 64 gr. Power Core 95/5 #X223RF. They are powerful, accurate and hold together pretty well while still expanding. I like them because they will penetrate concealment and light cover without blowing up.

Or!

Whatever is in the rifle when the emergency comes up.
Hell, walk in front of a .22LR at 10 to 20 feet and get a hands on lesson in terminal ballistics.:lol:
Personally I keep 62 gr. Rem. Soft points in mine.
I have not a clue as to the ballistic profile, but crap fly's all to pieces when I hit it.

Man:
You need another firearm if your talking "home defense". I cannot believe at point blank range the drywall will stop a round and that can still be effective at the same point blank range on soft tissue. Now if you're at my front gate, I'll grab a rifle, but not in the house. I'll let my dogs take you down..lol.

I don't want to hit anyone living next to me if I can avoid it, I would think with the stucko walls a lot of homes are constructed with these days 223 ammo would take out a neighbor or two if you have to use it. Course if you don't like those neighbors:eek:
