Details

This hard to find 5.56x45mm XM855 ammunition is perfect for your 5.56 chambered AR-15 and it is manufactured at the famed Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP). This ammo is rugged and reliable having been produced on the same production line that produces ammunition for our U.S. military!

This XM855 ammunition is also commonly known as "green tip" or "penetrator" ammo for the steel tip located at the front of the bullet. These "green tip" bullets are copper jacketed, lead core, with a steel tip at the front of the bullet.

Lake City is currently operated under contract by ATK (parent company of Federal, CCI, and Speer) who is allowed to sell excess production to the civilian market. This ammo is new production (Fall of 2011 production run) and was made available due to a production overrun at that time.

This ammunition which is manufactured on the same production line that as the U.S. military's has a few differences than commercially manufactured 223 ammo. First, this ammo has both a primer sealant and a case/mouth sealant designed to help prevent moisture intrusion helping your ammo to last longer. Second, this ammunition must have the annealing marks left around the neck of the cartridge case. Brass cases are formed from a flat sheet of metal and are made through the cup and draw process. With each drawing step that the brass undergoes it becomes brittle and must be heat treated for it to become workable again for the next draw. After the last draw the brass runs across a series of flames aimed at the neck of the case to make the metal malleable. Evidence of this final annealing step at Lake City must be left on the cases so that military inspectors can verify that the cases have been properly annealed. So, the discoloration on the cases is simply a cosmetic appearance and is actually a sign that this final quality step was performed. In fact, Lake City brass is considered by many reloading experts to be the best brass in the world for reloading 5.56 ammo.

This ammo is brass-cased, boxer-primed, non-corrosive, and reloadable. For quality 5.56 ammo, it doesn't get any better than Lake City production!

Jerry Newman ( Sat, 27 Jul 2013 05:42:24 +0000 ) : Greg Mason asked if this XM855 was like SS109. they are one and the same. M855; M855A1 and XM855 is the U.S. designation, SS-109 is the NATO designation for this round. There is NO difference.
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Sat, 27 Jul 2013 15:37:55 +0000 ) : Thanks Jerry!
John Clausen ( Mon, 12 Aug 2013 10:09:54 +0000 ) : Your the best out there.

Product Question and Answer

Our customer service team has published this Q&A information as a free service to the shooting community. Please note that LuckyGunner.com expressly disclaims any and all liability with regard to how the shooting community might use this Q&A information. See Terms of Use for more details.

Q: Will LuckyGunner make up for shortages in boxes of loose ammo?

Posted On: 6/18/13 By: Larry

A: If for any reason a case is miscounted and is short, we will be sure to provide compensation for you. However this hardly every happens, with the phrase "odds are one in a million" (rounds) being true!
Q: I am acquiring a mini 14 from brother in law, looking up ammo this is listed under 223, will this work the same? Only own pistols.

Posted On: 11/23/12 By: Michael

A: This will depend on the markings on the Mini 14 you are purchasing. You will want to check the markings on the side of the barrel. You will notice either .223 Rem or 5.56 NATO. If 5.56 NATO, this will work for the rifle. If .223 Rem, you will want to find a .223 Rem caliber ammo. While both appear to be the same size and shape, the 5.56 ammo shoots at a higher pressure and may harm the rifle over time, or upon firing. If you have any additional questions or concerns about this ammo, please feel free to e mail us.
Q: What is the date of manufacture? Are these all one batch or mixed?

Posted On: 8/22/12 By: Joseph Baker

A: This Lake City ammunition has been manufactured within the last two years of the current calendar date. A majority of the brass will have a 2011 marking on them. Lake City will use a mix of brass that is available so it is difficult to know this exact number. It is very likely that all will be from the same batch, including multiple cases of this ammo.
Q: 5.56x45 - 62 gr FMJ XM855 - Lake City - 250 Rounds Loose Is this Ammo SS109 ?

Posted On: 6/30/12 By: Gregory Mason

A: These Lake City cartridges include the SS109 (M855) features and are loaded to the NATO specifications. These bullets are steel tipped with a green coating. The Lake City brass is boxer primed and reloadable.

Best Choice For Lake City 5.56 Review by Oscar Zulu
Performance
Value
Quality
Being an ammo snob I prefer to shoot the same ammo in the same weapon consistently.
I don't always shoot 5.56 but when I do I get it from Lucky Gunner. Why? Because the prices are decent; The turnaround time from purchase to possessing is minimal and because as far as I know Lake City has never shorted me a single round on loose ammo. There's a lot more consistency here then you find at most other website ammo dealers.
So - when I absolutely positively got to put some holes in something down range I get my green tip here.

You'll want to inspect the rounds for defects. Most are simple cosmetic digs from bulk packaging, however you'll probably find a couple (~1%) that shouldn't be chambered/fired (bent casings or major dents). Every single round that passed visual inspection fired and ejected flawlessly.

Prices are still high (everywhere) for me to buy this in serious quantities. No complaints at all about LuckyGunner, I've purchased thousands of rounds here, it all ships fast and arrives as expected. (Posted on 11/22/13)

I bought this ammo for my sons AR Carbon from Bushmaster. My wife and I bought the rifle about 6 mo ago while in a Bass Pro Shop while we were talking on the phone with him. He is in the Army and loves to shoot. We all love to shoot. While home on leave we went shooting, and the ammo worked well...when we opened the box, he said "hey this is the same kind we use". We shot up a lot of paper and had one jam, operator error. The ammo was flawless. Buying more soon for his next leave. This was our 3rd buy from Lucky Gunner. I have referred several people I work with to them. This order was online on a Tuesday, delivered on Friday...can't beat that. Thanks, Dutchdirkk (Posted on 8/6/13)

I ordered (2) 250 round boxes of the XM855 and it was delivered in 3 days. Great service and fast delivery. Both boxes contained only 248 rounds, not a big deal. The ammo is great and goes bang everytime. I ordered (2) 1,000 round cases when they became available and same great service and fast delivery. I noticed a weight difference in the 2 boxes when delivered. One box contained 1,003 rounds and the other box contained 931 rounds. I ordered 2,500 rounds total and received only 2,430. At the current price 70 rounds missing is a big deal to me. Sorry Lucky Gunner but I have decided to take my business elsewhere. (Posted on 3/3/13)

As an avid user of my SW MP15, I like using ammo that I can rely & know will fire time after time. This ammo does the job & then some, I like that it's a little heavier bullet, thus providing the extra recoil required to assure that jams do not occur (Put well over 2,000 rounds of this particular ammo through the MP, not one single jam or misfire). I've bought this ammo from many different sources, and Lucky Gunner is one source I will purchase from for sure in the future, the delivery was lightning fast, and the product came exactly as described. I will definitely stop by here for future ammo purchases :) (Posted on 12/11/12)

Good Ammo, No Malfunctions Review by ***Copper_State_1911***
Performance

Ordered a box of these. They arrived quicker than I expected. I blasted away about 50 of these rounds through my new Rock River Arms LAR-15. Not a single malfunction.
Wish they came on stripper clips, but im planning on using the empty stripper clips from the 900 pack of ammo I purchased along with these.
Because their loose rounds I don't know if that is the reason there are small dents on the collar of each case. Maybe their denting one another from falling into big bins during production? who knows.
But they do seem to be "2nds", rounds that did not pass mil spec but are still perfectly usable for the civilian market..
I was able to pierce through a 1/4inch scrap steel pipe from approx 50 yards. (Not sure of its Brinell Hardness) But I was impressed. It will not pierce AR500 steel from what I've read and seen on various videos. But AR500 steel is designed not to be pierced, but this round will leave a scar on the metal.
All ranges in my area will not allow this ammo to be used. Especially on their steel targets. Which is understandable.

Overall they do what they're designed to do, Feed, Fire & Eject. While providing more penetration due to the steel core tip. (Posted on 10/8/12)

Nice Experience. Review by Marcus of Arrington
Performance
Value
Quality
These are AP (armor piercing) green tips. They fly straight and true. My Bushmaster XM15 E2S loved munching on this batch. Recoil consistency was very good indicating accurate powder loads. Having worked as a Quality Engineer, I think these are Quality rejects because 3-4% have small dents in them around the annealed collar. The GOOD news is they didn't affect my shooting or round ejection. I only had 1 round that didn't fire however I think that was because I used a brand spanking new 30 round MagPul magazine that had never been in the firearm.

With shipping to my door I averaged....you guessed it $0.556 per round. I searched and compared for hours and kept coming back to LG for the price. Rounds were on my doorstep 3 days after I hit the Enter key. And HEY! Heidi sure is easy on these 52 y/o eyes! ;O) (Posted on 9/25/12)

This green tip is just awesome. I shoot this in both my SB AR15,and my Ruger mini14 with no negative issues at all. I maintain 2500 rds of this ammo,and another 5000 rds of 556 federal black box at all times.There ain't no such thing as having too much ammo. (Posted on 7/31/12)

Bought two 250 round loose pack boxes. Review by gguldens56
Performance

Took some time to get set up to shoot at an outdoor range. I really did not want to be shooting these at my indoor range at 25 yard distances. First time shooting outdoors and at 50 yards. These were used on the same target as my regular PMC Remington 223s. There was definitely more kick to these rounds. Accuracy was the same as the .223 rounds. I could not see any differences in the pattern on the target between the 2 I shot with .223 and the two shot with the 5.56.

I really like the rounds, but I still will only shoot them at the outdoor range. (Posted on 7/25/12)

We all know what this ammo is... clean, accurate and reliable. The best thing about my order was finding a company that offers excellent service, excellent communication and backs up what it says. A true rarity in a world where customer service doesn't exist and retailers often make it difficult for you to spend money with them. THANK YOU LUCKY GUNNER! (Posted on 7/8/12)

Quality Ammo. I noticed that in the reviews of ammo here at LG , people tend to compare American ammo to Communist ammo and naturally the American Ammo is better. My thumb rule is never shoot Commie Ammo in any American weapon system. Use commie weapons that is what the ammo was made for. The comments about cleaning your weapon after use is good advise.
Lucky Gunner is the greatest place to purchae ammo , whether it be one box of 20 rounds or a 1000 rounds. They are a great company and go beyond what others do for customer service and they are all ways honest and more than fair. (Posted on 7/8/12)

Great value for top-notch ammo. I inspected every round (I do this for safety) and there wasn't one reject. My box was also a couple rounds heavy, so no complaints there! This stuff feeds and fires flawlessly through my semi-custom Bravo Company AR-15. Relatively clean, very accurate, hits hard.

LuckyGunner shipped same day and the package arrived on the third day. You just can't ask for better service than that. Packaging was excellent, the bulk box was wedged into the larger shipping box so it wouldn't get tossed around. I'll definitely be ordering again, more of this Lake City M855 and other cartridges.

I purchased this on a Thursday evening and it arrived Saturday morning... Great shipping and love the fact that Lucky Gunner only shows what they have in stock so you don't have to waste time looking for ammo only to find out that it isn't in stock. Keep up the excellent job, I will definitely be buying from you guys again. (Posted on 6/23/12)

Some of the best ammo Review by Buffer84

I love this ammo! It is some of the best stuff that I have ever bought. Clean, accurate as all heck and very reliable. You can rely on this to save your life and reach out and touch a target at long distance. I use this through my AR-15 w/Adams Arms upper and it fires flawlessly. Wolf and Tula ammo is garbage and you can't even compare it really. Lucky has the best price for this ammo. I compared Lucky to other places and Lucky was faster on the shipping,cheaper, and all around good experience. With other places you have all these different warehouses and handling fees and they kill you on shipping. Keep up the good work Lucky. Thank you. (Posted on 6/10/12)
