In 1922 Charles Horn came across a failing factory and decided to attempt to save it. At that time the factory had been in business for six years already and was producing only small arms ammunition. Horn founded Federal with a simple marketing plan: sell ammunition in barber shops, gas stations, and grocery stores. It isn't something that can be done now, but back then it worked like a charm and Federal immediately took off. Over the years Federal has been awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence for their part supplying our military with ammunition and has seen Olympic shooters win gold medals using their ammunition. Today Federal is definitely a leader in the industry; Charles Horn would be proud.
These Federal rounds are for your 5.56x45mm NATO-chambered rifle. At 55 grain they’re very lightweight so they’re going to move to your target with lightning speed, but don’t let their lighter weight fool you, because they’re still capable of punching an impressive hole in your stationary targets. These are Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail (FMJBT) rounds, so they don’t expand on impact. Their Boat Tails give them increased resistance to cross-winds and help them maintain a balanced trajectory, making them a good choice for longer-range shots. This ammunition is great for target practice and plinking.
Each of these rounds moves with fantastic speed at a muzzle velocity of 3,165 feet per second. There are 500 target rounds in this box of ammunition which is a nice amount for dedicating serious time to honing your marksmanship skills with your favorite rifle. With this much ammunition you can spend focused time working on accuracy, shot placement, and firing from a variety of positions, and your skills are bound to improve. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota, and all ammunition undergoes extensive testing and strict quality control measures. If you’re serious about improving your marksmanship you want this high-quality, American-made ammunition. Don’t wait another second, order now.
