Details

This 5.56 NATO military surplus ammunition is manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, Missouri by defense contractor Alliant Techsystems and sold under the Federal American Eagle brand. As excess production for military use, it is highly sought after by AR-15 owners for its consistency and mil-spec authenticity. At the same time, it's inexpensive enough to use on the range in significant quantities!

These cartridges are packaged in economical loose boxes of 90 and follow the M855 specification, firing a heavy 62 grain full metal jacket bullet with a distinctive painted green tip. The bullet achieves a muzzle velocity of about 3,100 feet per second from a 24 inch barrel.

As military rounds, these cartridges display visible evidence of case annealing on the brass. This is typically removed by commercial manufacturers for aesthetic reasons but actually serves as proof that the round was manufactured correctly.

Like other Federal products, this ammo uses non-corrosive Boxer primers.

If you have a rifle chambered in .223 Remington, you may want to check with the manufacturer before using 5.56 NATO cartridges such as these. Most .223 guns will fire 5.56 with no problems but a few will have trouble with the slightly higher pressures of military ammo.
