But suppose you’re a fat, old, bald man (like me). The Recruiting Command is going to very politely tell you that they’re not really looking for anyone right now. So what does that mean? That you can never fire the LAACP’s 5.56x45 ammo? Not remotely! Thanks to Federal (and Lucky Gunner) you can order a whole case of M193 right to your doorstep!
This is the basic ammo issued for the M16A1 rifle, but it’s absolutely perfect for the civilian’s AR-15 as well. Each cartridge has a simple FMJ bullet to ensure reliable feeding and limited barrel leading, with a boat tail that helps the bullet stay faster as it travels farther and farther downrange. That nonmagnetic bullet is paired with a non-corrosive primer and charge of clean-burning propellant, as well as a new production brass case.
It’s basic ammo without the need for basic training! All packaged loose in a big box so you don’t have to claw through dozens of little boxes at the range.
