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.

I'm running these rounds through a Sig Sauer M400 TREAD. 0 jams, 0 misfires, 0 issues. It doesn't shoot too dirty for my needs and it hits my targets very accurately. I ran these in my TREAD until steam was pouring off the barrel, and nothing went wrong! I will definitely purchase another 500 rounds when the time comes.
Quality round, good price, and shoots very consistent from round to round. Not very dirty, accuracy is acceptable and certainly is "min of man" with any type of modern battle rifle.
Shooting from an SBR Daniel Defense as well as a Salient Arms rifle - works wonderfully in both. Never an issue. Will buy more.
Reliable and accurate
It is amazing to me that no one seems to shoots measured groups. We know Lucky Gunner is great; but what about the accuracy of these loads? I have been shooting this LC 55 gr 556 since 2003. At 100yds it will group 2" or less out of 1-9, 1-8 and 1-7 twist barrels. It is reliable in 11.5", 16" and 18" barrels; yes, and Lucky Gunner is wonderful! For all who read this and write reviews. Buy a ruler.
Good Price, Quick Delivery, FUN
First It is Fun to Shoot this ammo out of this weapon (Radiacal 556), smooth and no miss fires.
price was easy on the pocket, and delivery quick.
Enjoying this very much, looking forward to next batch. M/C, USN, Retired
Great service and ammo!
For the price I have found no one that can compare to Lucky Gunner. Package great shape very good service I will be buying all my gun and ammo needs at Lucky Gunner! Would highly recommend Lucky Gunner!!
Perfect price great ammo!
It was my first time buying from Lucky Gunner and I went through 300 5.56 rounds just like eating a bag of Lays chips...fast! So I'm Lucky I found the Gunner, I just ordered another 500 rounds from the Lucky Gunner very easy super quick, arrived at my front door in 3 days. I will be buying most if not all of my ammo from the Lucky Gunner.
Excellent price and product. Fast shipping and arrived in excellent condition.
Ordered ammo online and was pleasantly surprised at the quickness the order was handled. Fast shipping and it arrived in great shape. Next time I need bulk ammo I will be placing an order here.
Third purchase from Lucky Gunner, each purchase arrived quickly, exactly what I ordered, great shape and so far not even close to a problem. Now I'm just stock piling, 500 rounds at a time.
Would (and have) highly recommend to anyone.
It came when it was supposed to and in good condition! It's certainly not my first order and won't be my last. Thanks for providing a great service.
It came when it was supposed to and in good condition! It's certainly not my first order and won't be my last. Thanks for providing a great service. I enjoy the "professional advice"from your staff as well - please keep them coming.
Gotta love American Eagle
I always try to run American Eagle in my rifle. It feeds well, fires dependably, and groups nicely. I wish they would box them in 30rd boxes, but don't take that as a complaint. LuckyGunner is a great supplier and I love working with them. My order arrives in a timely manner, and the price is respectable. They will get my business time and time again.
I can't find enough good things to say about Lucky Gunner. I can always count on them to have reliable ammo in stock, at a great price, superior service, and excellent delivery! I have never missed a shot with any of the ammo I have purchased from Lucky Gunner. Thanks Chris & Angela!
Excellent hometown range ammo.
I buy federal for 2 reasons: it's made in my home state of Minnesota, and it's awesome stuff. Always fires, great accuracy, great prices.
Only thing I have to compare it to is PMC X-Tac m193. Which is more or less the same thing and gives similar performance. Only difference I notice is the federal is noticeably louder and has a bigger muzzle flash.
Love Lucky Gunner
Ordered 1000 rounds of this 5.56 and a 1000 .40 cal on Tuesday and it was on my doorstep by 11 am the next day. Can't ask for better service. Even had someone call me as I used a different shipping address than my billing address to ensure someone hadn't stolen my credit card. A+ service!!!
Went to the range and fired 200 rounds this afternoon without a single failure. Even told a guy in the lane next to me about Lucky Gunner and he will be placing an order soon.
Purchased a box of 500 to take the whole family out shooting and we shot every last round no issues great ammo .. First time ordering from lucky gunner prices are great shipped to my front door in 2 days couldn't ask for better service thank you Lucky Gunner and I will be ordering more soon have to restock
Great ammo, great service
I have been using this ammo for years and it always performs great. The price was cheap and the shipping was unreal fast to my doorstep. Went through 200 rounds not a single problem and will be ordering more.
Can't say enough
Lucky Gunner is one of the most reliable place to buy ammo. I install recently purchased 5.56 for my new AR15 . What a great day,the product was flawless. I am on your site daily searching for deals. I cannot say thank you enough. I have approximately7 rifles and purchased ammo with LUCKY GUNNER for all of my rifles. Thank You all so very much.
This is good ammo at a reasonable price. Although Federal XM193 is not on the top of my list, I always consider it when buying ammo for my rifle. In fact, I have bought more Federal XM193 than any other 5.56mm ammo.
Great ammo, availability and excellent customer service
Great experience. Website is easy to navigate. Excellent customer service and great ammo @ reasonable price. Had spent half of the ammo I bought from Lucky Gunner ammo in a range - shoot flawlessly and never had any single problem. I would highly recommend it to a friend.
Great price on good ammo
I didn't have much time to fully evaluate the performance because I had others shooting with me and other firearms as well. The ammo was descent for the limited rounds I fired. I will give a follow up review when I have more time to evaluate the ammo.
I love that the site only shows what is in stock. The ammo arrived fast and as advertised. Firing was consistent and clean. Will definitely buy this ammo and use Lucky Gunner again! Good price too considering limited availability of 5.56 at the time. I'll be back!
Glad I run across your site I was so happy that I could get bulk rounds use to buy local but we all know how that goes with the gun laws thanks a great deal for being there. as far as shipping it was faster than expected again thanks a great deal will be in touch once again for more products.
Excellent Operational Service
best price around for me, on the Left Coast in 5.5 days FedEx ground. How can you beat that? Waitin' on the background check, so will let you know if there's anything to add to previous reviews in a week or so.
Let's Do It Again!
When Lucky Gunner runs deals and I find they have the best price on the net I never hesitate to buy from them. Great service, easy site to navigate that only shows ammo that is available to ship. The Federal Lake City ammo as we all know is great stuff...zero issues ever in my Colt AR15 .
Buy the boat tail rounds
I made a bulk buy with LG for the XM 193 J 55 grain on stripper clips. The brass quality was good but the groups are not as tight as the boat tail rounds, which I have experience with. I waited until the prices came down and appreciate that Lucky Gunner got their senses back. In the future I will only buy the boat tail rounds. Thanks.
GROUPED IN MY BUSHMASTER VARMINT RIFLE GREAT AT 100 YD. SIGHT IN. THREE SHOTS WITHIN HALF INCH WITH TWO TOGETHER. A LITTLE EXPENSIVE BUT THE BEST UNLESS YOU LOAD YOUR OWN. BE GLAD IF AMMO GETS A LITTLE CHEAPER IN THE FUTURE.
Old Reliable XM193
Consistent, clean, reliable. If you shoot XM193, you know what to expect, and this lot is no different. Not match ammo, but not low quality either. I use it for consistency and reliability, and it's pretty clean too. What was great about this purchase however was the SUPER FAST service from Luck Gunner. Fast service, tracking notices, and delivery at a very competitive price. I will purchase again from Lucky Gunner.
I have 3 different lots of this LC 5.56. It is more accurate than any of the 62gr LC that I have. The price was reasonable and delivery prompt. Great service. I especially like the fact that you only see what ammo is available.
Outstanding place to purchase ammo
After searching my local stores for ammo, I finally turned to the Internet. At every site the ammo I wanted was either back ordered or out of stock! I finally found the Lucky Gunner website and they had the ammo I was looking for. They even tell you how much they currently have. I placed my first of what I am sure will be many future orders. The prices can't be beat, the quality is outstanding and the customer service kept me in the loop of what was going on with my order I signed up for e-mail updates and know what is available. I've found my ammo supplier for future orders!
Price, supply and demand
I hope the folks at LG don't mind this link I'm placing in my review, but some of the the above remarks, we all maybe could use a review of the market relationship of supply and demand and it's effect on price http://www.investopedia.com/university/economics/economics3.asp . Otherwise I'm happy with the ammo, and yes the price is high, however that is how our market functions.
This ammunition is good! It is clean and reliable! The only complaint I have with it is that some of the bullets are not seated straight in the casing. This might be from handling during shipping, but I am hesitant about firing them. Otherwise, I have put a lot of it down rang with no problems.
Federal XM193 & Lucky Gunner Rock!
Ordered on Tuesday - received on Friday (from Georgia to Colorado) just in time to use my 16 YO son's brand new M&P 15 MOE. We broke it in over the weekend (with a good cleaning & lube first, of course) with over 200 rounds down range without a single issue. Pulled the trigger and they went BANG each time. Federal delivers with this dependable, accurate, and fairly clean round. Great round for target practice, plinking, etc. Nice to see an offering for 500 rounds, not just 20 or 1000 rounds.
Thanks Lucky Gunner for a great product at a reasonable price and the quick delivery. I've ordered 9mm & .45ACP ammo for my Glocks (17 & 21) from LG recently and now 5.56. We'll be ordering again soon from you folks. Keep up the good work.
These guys are the REAL DEAL and aren't hosing their customers. They do the right thing. I tell other members at my gun club about my great experiences with LG. Prices will eventually come down and stabilize once the panic buying stops. We are all wanting to see lower prices for 5.56/.223.....It's already starting to show improvement.
Great job, AGAIN!!
We just returned from a long day of shooting....GREAT ammo, even better service. I put my stamp of approval on it and will be ordering more! I used to dislike internet ordering but it's the only way we purchase now in my small family...Thanks LG..
At least it's available!
Prices are high across the board, and at least LG has real 855 in stock.
Make shipping worthwhile by having some buddies pitch in for a few boxes.
It shoots and functions reliably in any AR platform, I don't really have any complaints except that I wish it were cheaper anywhere.
Good Ammo at a Great Price
Good quality rounds. Projectile impacts like a genuine NATO 5.56 when I conducted a simulated flesh penetration test (vs .223 rifle ammo). Did the job from 200 yd to 1000 yd line (later in the prone, but even at 500 w/ iron sights). Worth the money bros... Semper Fi, SSGT. P
