Sharps Rifle Company - Ammunition

The 25-45 SHARPS cartridge was developed by SRC to maximize the performance of the Modern Sporting Rifle (MSR) platform. With a greater muzzle velocity and a harder hitting 65 and 87 grain bullet, it’s performance surpasses the .223 REM/5.56 NATO. The 25-45 SHARPS is compatible with the existing .223/5.56 bolt carrier group and magazines available for the MSR platform. Replacing the .223/5.56 chambered barrel is the only adjustment needed to take advantage of the 25-45 SHARPS superior ballistic capabilities, thus creating a flexible and versatile rifle with superior performance. This allows the hunter to increase his MSR’s performance by switching to the 25-45 SHARPS without any additional rifle reconfiguration, making this not only the ultimate hunting cartridge round for the platform, but also the solution for several Military and LE needs. The effectiveness of the 25-45 SHARPS cartridge has already been extensively tested in the field. Function and reliability are the new standard with the 25-45 SHARPS.

• The 25-45 SHARPS packs a lot more punch with a little more kick <10%.
• Flies flat as a varmint round and hits hard like a brush cartridge.
• Proven on Antelope, Whitetail, Mule Deer and Boar.
• The 87 grain bullet driven at 3000 fps with 1739 fpe, trajects with abundant energy up to 300 yards and beyond, delivering match grade accuracy whilst the SPEER®HOT-COR® bullet mushrooms perfectly in it’s target.
