Winchester put their logo on this ammo’s box, but its contents are made by none other than the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant – the U.S. government’s primary ammo supplier. Each Missouri-made cartridge is loaded to M193 specifications, which means it is has a 55 grain nonmagnetic full metal jacket and enough clean-burning propellant to deliver a muzzle velocity of 3,180 fps. If you’re a new AR owner, this is essentially the most basic kind of ammo you could choose for target shooting. Great to have on hand for emergency scenarios, too!
This ammo is new production, and it has the noncorrosive Boxer primers to prove it. Its brass cases are brand new and never-before-fired. The necks of the cases are indeed darker, but that is simply because military-grade brass isn’t polished at the factory. The discoloration shows that the case was correctly annealed (i.e. heat-treated for added suppleness and durability).
