I have ran this through 4 classes now, Defensive carbine I and II, mid range rifle, and a Sentinel Concepts Critical Carbine Employment II. It has ran perfect through it all. I have ran around 7-8K of this and the only issues were a few failure to feeds (my fault for not cleaning for 3K rounds) and I have found a few that had case deformations from manufacturing (5 or 6 through all 8k).
Accuracy is standard and consistent, between 1 and 2 MOA. I had no issues getting first round hits on 10 inch steel gongs at 300 yards in the mid range rifle course.
Recoil impulse and ejection patterns are consistent through out.
All were ran (and will continue to be run) through my BCM.
Specs are: 14.5"BFH BCM mid length upper, Spikes lower, geissele H buffer, geissele SSA-E trigger, Trijicon 1-6, standard Okay Industries mags and HK Steel mags. Have roughly 13K through this gun.

20% of the Rounds Have Bad Primers
For awhile I thought I was having issues with my hammer or light primer strikes. Finally took my rifle to the shop and went with an employee to go and shoot a few rounds. In total, 20% of these rounds simply will not fire. Strike mark on the primer is solid, but the rounds would not go off. Ran them through a second time and the same thing. This has happened on my last 4 trips to the range. Just some bad, cheap ammo.
I bought this ammo an it was shipped fast. It ran threw my m&p 15 perfect with no flaws.. I would highly recommend this ammo an would highly recommend lucky gunner as the go to place for ammo. These people are amazing an I also subscribe to there YouTube channel...THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!!
Great ammo and super last shipping
After doing my research and checking out who had the best fair price I am so glad I went with lucky Gunner. Ammo was at my door in two days and I was shooting this evening. Bulk packing but with the free over box and packaging it came perfectly fine. Will be getting more when I pick up more ammo cans.
Quick delivery Great quality Best value
I've gone through several thousand rounds without a misfire or jam. My rifles are kept very clean. Although I've read from other reviewers that some of the rounds in the bulk packaging have been dented beyond use, that has NOT been the case with the cases I have received. When you compare price to value Federal American Eagle is the way to go. By the way, I am simply a satisfied customer, I get no compensation of any kind for completing this review.
Speedy Delivery; Product as Advertised; Great Price!
Once again Lucky Gunner has lived up to its reputation; great! This ammo fires perfect and with less residue than I have experienced from others. I did have an issue with a 45ACP order some time ago and could not believe how fast (on a Saturday no less!) that the issue was rectified, no questions asked! I will continue to order from Lucky Gunner. They stand by their customers; and deliver!
All of my AR's really like this stuff. It's much more accurate than M855 and for target practice or just plinking its great. I suspect that this is really military ammo of some sort. The primers are crimped and sealed, and I wouldn't be surprised if the bullet tumbled and broke up on impact just like the 55 grain military round.
If you are willing to take the crimp off of the primer the cases are excellent for reloading. With 223/5.56 so cheap its not worth reloading, but when the next ammo scare comes around and the supply dries up, its nice to have a few hundred recordable cases on the shelf so you can keep shooting.
My rifles will group this under 1" at 50 yards, and that's with me shooting so you can probably do better. I try to always have 1000 rounds of this on the shelf because its the best ammo around for AR's. See the Lucky Gunner Labs for a 10000 round test.
American Eagle .223, 1,000 rounds
Last night I gave a pretty negative review on the above ammo. I based my review not on how this type of ammo shoots, I was pretty negative about how the brass looked. Well I now take back my negative remarks because today is the first chance I had to start using this ammo and can only rate this .223 as a fantastic round. I went out today and fired 300 rounds. I used 50 rounds to zero in three of my scopes. First 25 rounds were zeroed in at 100 yds, the second 25 rounds were zeroed in at 200 yds. These 50 rounds were bench fired using two sand bags. The remaining 250 rounds were shot using different shooting positions. At 200 yards it took me almost the full 50 rounds to place a nice group using an EOTech with a 3x magnifier. I had absolutely no problems with all the rounds I fired. I would recommend this ammo to anybody. Tomorrow I am going out with 300 rounds of 5.56 Hornady's . Getting ready to order another 1,000 rounds "after" I test four different types of the .223. I'll then do the same order after I fire the different Hornady's.
Excellent product! Lucky Gunner Rules!
First, let me say that Lucky Gunner is awesome! Awesome prices! Awesome service! Fast delivery!
The Federal American Eagle .223 is great ammo. Runs clean, never had any problems with it.
Best price on the web. I will continue to do business with Lucky Gunner!
Federal .223 FMJ-BT Great service, product and value!
Great service, product and VALUE! Since finding LG, I shop nowhere else. Even with cost of shipping, it is the BEST value around. I'm really glad that LG exists to serve ME! (And they waste NO time in delivering your order!)
223Rem 55gr FMJBT
This is my third order of this product and I am completely satisfied with both this Federal ammo and the customer service and promptness of LuckyGunner!! No feed problems, no misfires. Good brass and muzzle velocity (chronographed) is very consistent.
The best company I've found!
I only buy from Lucky Gunner these days (about five years). Use to shop around, but that was a waste of time. All I ever found was that they were the best on virtually every level. I only buy in bulk, and they deliver usually in 2 days. You will not find a better place to buy your ammunition, I know, I've tried and there is no other.
223 Rem - 55 gr FMJBT - Federal American Eagle - 1000 Rounds
I was shocked by how fast this item arrived. It took 25 Hours from the time I ordered this item to arrive at my house. I am very pleased with this purchase and I look forward to doing business with Luckygunner.com in the future. LORD BLESS
Great performance at a great price
LuckyGunner shipped completely and quickly. I've had other vendors charge my credit card and ship weeks later. LG put the order together and shipped it quickly. This is what everyone expects from a company. LG prices were even better that other sites! Bottom line: I will do business with LG again.
Good quality ammo.
I am very pleased with this ammo. I am also very pleased with the service from Lucky Gunner. The item was in stock and shipping with quick and trouble free. Great to deal with. Will use again and recommend to my friends.
