Maybe you’re a high volume shooter. Maybe you’re a busy beaver who likes to stock up for the winter. Either way, it’s hard to go wrong with 1,000 rounds of 223 Rem ammo by Federal if you own an AR-15 or any other rifle chambered for 223 or 5.56×45.
Federal’s American Eagle 223 Rem performs exactly like the U.S. Army’s M193 cartridge with its 55 grain bullet loaded to a muzzle velocity of 3,240 fps. It’s a standard FMJBT with a solid point that inhibits terminal expansion, gilding metal exterior for smooth feeding and reduced barrel leading, and tapering base that helps retain more velocity downrange for a flatter trajectory. The bullet’s 0.269 G1 ballistic coefficient means it reaches 300 yards traveling at nearly twice the speed of sound, at which point it still carries over 600 ft lbs of energy.
This Minnesota-made ammunition has brand new brass cases. They’re supple enough to promote clean ignition as they expand to seal the chamber, and they return to their original dimensions following ignition so they can be reloaded. This new production ammo has non-corrosive Boxer primers and is completely nonmagnetic.
