The Lake City Army Ammunition Plant is the United States government’s primary ammo supplier. But we bet you can do something even better with this military-grade 223 Rem ammunition than the government could ever dream of: target practice with your AR-15.

This cartridge is loaded with a 55 grain full metal jacket – the same bullet you’d find on the Army’s 5.56 M193 spec round. At that weight the bullet achieves the 3,240 fps muzzle velocity AR enthusiasts are sure to find real familiar. The FMJ contains lead and copper alloy. What it does not contain is steel, so no need to worry about whether or not this ammo will attract a magnet. The FMJ isn’t preferred for taking deer and other medium game due to its inability to expand after impact, but its efficacy for varmint hunting is indisputable.

This is new ammo, not military surplus. That means noncorrosive Boxer primers and factory fresh reloadable brass cases. Note that the discoloration on the cases is purely cosmetic – a byproduct of the heat-treatment process that makes brass suppler, and nothing more. Military-grade brass isn't polished at the factory because it doesn't have to be pretty, plus the government wants proof that its ammo is manufactured correctly.
