Compare this 62 Grain Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) ammunition from Federal to some other 5.56x45 Ammo (AR-15) |


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 product is labeled as Federal ammunition who runs the Lake City plant.

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!

Fast shipping. Got exactly what I order. Will continue to use Lucky Gunner. Review by Randy
Work great, no issues what so ever with this ammo. I will buy more. (Posted on 4/14/14)
Great Ammo, quality and performance is outstanding Review by Van
I've fired several thousand rounds of this "XM855" ammo and cannot find anything bad to say about it. I don't know if it is truly overrun production of the actual stuff they send to the govt. for our troops but it is close enough for me. I've fired it full auto and semi. The only negative thing about this ammo is that it functions so well that my barrels get hot so quick that I have to stop a while to cool things down. It is truly the best out there on the civilian market.
I've had one or two malfunctions but I'd blame my rifle for those before this ammo. Buffer was probably too light and gun "ran away". No misfires at all. None. (Posted on 3/19/14)
Great Review by AC

Recieved 1000 Rounds.... Review by Ronald
Got 1000 Rounds of this Ammo, LG got it here very fast. Great Customer service. I counted the Rounds and was very happy to see the count was right on. I examined all rounds and they were in perfect condition, a few dings here and there ,but that's to be expected with loose shipped ammo. Went to the Range and shot a couple 30 rd Mags through my Stag Arms AR-15. No FTF or FTE, and after I got my AR honed in, All shots were in a 8" area of Target.@ 100 yards. Extremely satisfied. Ty LG I will definitely be ordering more, Have a Happy 4th of July. God Bless America !!! (Posted on 7/4/13)
