Federal Ammunition is owned by ATK, which is under contract to run the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant. ATK is allowed to sell their excess production to the civilian market, and does so under the Federal American Eagle label. Because this XM193 ammunition comes off military production lines, it is loaded at 5.56mm specifications, and is ideal for 5.56mm firearms. The X is simply an internal federal designation for ammunition sold on the civilian market. This ammunition meets all military specifications.
XM193 has been available for some time, but has recently become available on stripper clips in 30 round boxes. Stripper clips make loading magazines very easy and much faster than trying to load one round at a time. This is especially useful for owners of semi-automatic rifles, most of which use 30 round magazines. This way, you can grab one box and load one magazine. Also, you'll spend more time shooting and less time loading magazines.
One important step in the manufacturing process for brass-cased ammunition is annealing. Ammunition cases go from a flat sheet of brass to a formed case through a number of steps, and each step causes the brass to become brittle so it is heated to ensure that it remains workable. When brass is produced for US military ammunition, the evidence of the annealing process is left on the case so that the military's inspectors can ensure that this critical step has been completed. Every step in this process is completed in the United States, and Lake City Brass is consider to be some of the best in the world.
Another feature of this ammunition is that it's extremely weather resistant. There's a lacquer primer sealant, as well a case mouth sealant to prevent moisture from intruding and damaging the ammunition's effectiveness. The primer is crimped in place, preventing the primer from blowing out and stopping a semi-automatic or automatic weapon from functioning. It is tested to function from negative 40 degrees to 125 degrees Fahrenheit.
The bullet features a cannelure and the mouth of the case is crimped, reducing chances of bullet setback, which can result in unsafe pressures or malfunctions.
I tested this XM193 ammunition in various semi-automatic rifles and carbines, and it functioned perfectly in all of them. It was accurate during slow fire, and consistent and reliable during rapid fire. Because this is 5.56 pressure ammunition, it will function more reliably in weapons that are dirty or have not been properly lubricated.
XM193 is loaded with a 55 grain full metal jacket boat tail bullet designed for accuracy and effectiveness that ranges out to 500 yards. With a lead core and the copper jacket, it is acceptable for any range that allows the use of rifles. I chronographed this load in rifle and carbine-length AR-15s, and the results were consistent with the military specifications for this ammo.
This ammo is manufactured by a company with decades of experience with military ammunition production. It's meant to function under the harshest conditions found on Earth. I would recommend this for any training or range use.

Can't believe the speed of delivery and service.
I searched the web for a good buy on AR ammo and got the 4 day to 2 week shipping delay answer. When I talked to the Lucky Gunner staff and they said same day shipping I had to laugh. Can't believe it actually shipped the same day and was on my door step less than 2 days later. Great place to shop and I recommend them. I appreciate that they do not backorder and believe they have some dedicated and hard working employees.
I will buy more.
Just got my first Colt M4 and needed ammunition. Saw this and bought 900 rounds. So far, it has cycled very well with no problems at all. I'm happy with the product. Rated at 3 stars for price because I'm not happy with the price of ammo anywhere right now.
5 star performance
Love Luckygunner would recommend to any one fast delivery, was going out to shoot on Monday order on Wednesday received on Saturday went out on Monday what else can you ask for. looking for 40s&w for sure I am going to order from them.
This ammo was an astounding deal when I picked it up at the beginning of Nov. 2012 (right before the election). Unfortunately, the price has gone up quite a bit since then. The ammo shoots very clean and coming 30 rounds/box, 10 per stripper clip is very convenient. I can load all of my magazines in just a couple of minutes.
Definite buy and check back often for the best price.
So far so good!
Ordered two boxes of these 900 packs. They arrived quicker than I expected. I blasted away about 100 of these rounds through my new Rock River Arms LAR-15. Not a single malfunction of any kind. Love that their on stripper clips, makes reloading mags easier and quicker. Hold onto those stripper clips! you can "re-fill" them with some loose rounds.
I've read and heard mixed thoughts on the "X" designation these have on them, some people think they're over production of military spec ammo being sold to the civilian market. Some think their "2nds", that they didn't pass military spec quality control, but their good enough for civilian use...
I don't know myself but all i know is they work. They feed, fire & eject just fine.
Will order again when I get more spare cash!
Will order again
I must say all of our orders from the LuckyGunner site have been of high quality, Customer service is great delivery is fast, (wish all of my vendors were this good). We will have a long relationship with LuckyGunner. This ammo is used for training. with one malfunction. But that is to be expected. Great job and see you on the next order.
Awesome Ammo / Great Customer Service
The ammo shoots great, zero malfunctions while at the range last weekend. It was on my doorstep in 3 days time, and the customer service here at lucky gunner is by far the best I've seen. The only reason I gave this 4 starts on "value" was because you can get the same thing on stripper clips from Federal for about $20 less (the 900 rounds), except the boxes aren't as "pretty" as these.

Great stuff, will buy from them again! (along with all the other ammo for my other weapons).
Love the stripper clip!
This ammo works great in my LWRC M6A3, Very tight groups. In my Ruger Mini-14 with iron sights we hit 10 for 10 at 150 yards on the MGM sniper door steel target! As always Luckygunner was great to work with and fast delivery.
Ammo arrived within a day or two.,I loaded the AR with federals 5.56x45 55gr,fired clean and every time,,I fired off 3 mags 30 ea,no jams..Good prices,Great service,the shipping is unbelieveably fast..Thanks Hiedi
First Purchase......... but many to come!
This was my maiden voyage on Lucky Gunner and WOW!!!!! Good price on brass, Instant order confirmation, Received tracking information in 3 hours and the delivery was 2 days later. Oustanding customer service!
I am very pleased with the performance and reliability of the ammo. Never had a problem with cycling and accuracy was consistent. This will not be my last order!
Best ammo I have used so far !! This ammo cycles my AR every time . This is important to me . I don't need ammo that malfunctions ! This ammo is great . I will buy more soon .
5 star ammo. Like it a lot and my AR likes it alot. Buying more soon. Good ammo, at a good price. I like cheap ammo, but this is not cheap ammo. Never a misfire. Real nice ammo.
Great product, awesome price, delivered quickly!
A friend and I have shot all 900 rounds through our AR-15s and had not a single malfunction. The delivery took a matter of days, and I was able to track the order as I eagerly awaited my ammunition. I recommend removing the rounds from the stripper clip before loading them into your mags to guarantee they are seated properly. I've never met a trustworthy stripper clip.
I purchase 99.9% of my ammunition from LuckyGunner. Their prices, products, active inventory system and fast shipping are the best in the business. I can't even begin to tally up how many rounds of M193 I have fired over the past 30 years. I also can't remember the last time I had any type of malfunction that was caused by this ammunition. It isn't the prettiest ammo out there but it functions perfectly, goes bang everytime and is relatively clean burning if your using a direct impingement AR. The stripper clips are a nice bonus and at .34 per round not including shipping costs you can't go wrong on the price. This ammo is manufactured at the Lake City facility right here in the U.S.A. Our ammunition is the best in the world bar none. This M193 is dependable, accurate and well suited for all types of shooting.
I have ordered from LuckyGunner 4 times now. I won't order from anyone else the service is awesome and delivery was great. This ammo is great for shooting. I've burned through this in both of my M4s and haven't had a problem. I will be ordering more shortly.
quality performance, quality price
I've been shooting these out of my MP15X for some time now and have no complaints. I've had no malfunctions with this ammunition and for target ammunition my groupings are staying very tight and accurate.
Great Value, Fast Shipping!!!
Best value on the net for quality reloadable 5.56 ammo and the stripper clips are a definite bonus! The combo of wide selection, value & great customer service makes Lucky Gunner my 1st choice for ammo.
I am no expert when i comes to ammo and I have not yet fired this batch. First impressions was that a lot of the cartridges had dings in them and the casings seemed a little dirty. Take that for what it is. Other than that, delivery was fast and the 900 rounds do fit into a 50cal can.
Great Deal...Great Shipping
This is really good ammo at a very good price. Time from placing order to product at the front door was outstanding. Will definately buy this and other products from luckygunner again in the future. Keep up the good work!!!
Cheapest prices on the Internet
I love this ammo and couldn't believe the price when I saw it on here. I actually bought the 400 case of the same American Eagle XM193 with no stripper clips, but I bought the last case so I couldn't leave a comment on that products page. Luckygunner got the ammo to me in 3 days which is unheard of else where. If they keep this stuff in stock I will be buying from here regularly.
Good ammo for the price
I have shot about 100 rounds in my SW MP15T without a hitch.....accurate and no misfires or jams......love the stripper clips......Lucky Gunner was best price on the net and I received product very quickly.....I will buy again from this vendor and will buy this product again too!
Weekend range ammo
I have much better luck with this over WOLF even though it usually costs a tad more. Packaging is not robust but the stripper clips are actually pretty handy....my first time to try them. This ammo may not satisfy the accuracy freak but it is a good value for weekend plinking at the range in my opinion.
Best deal on AR ammo anywhere
The fact that the ammo is brass cased, boxer primed puts it ahead of a lot of the ammo out there in this price range. The stripper clips are just gravy. In over 500 rounds, not one failure to feed/fire/extract/eject, and my M&P 15 eats this stuff like a Texan at a BBQ shack.
High velocity and very accurate. Shoots 1 inch group at 100yards. Best ammo of many different brands that I tested.

I recently bought this ammunition and finally had a chance to go to the range with it. It was the first time that I bought this product, and it was the first use of my new rifle. The stripper clips and feeders worked smoothly and easily for loading the magazines in my Ruger 556. The brass is not polished, and the packaging very plain - but the performance was flawless. I am looking forward to heading out to the range to fire more of this ammunition.
A big Thank you to Lucky Gunner, The shipping was Fast and the company was very quick to email me all the info i needed. Still havent shot it yep but everything up to this point was excelent! Thank you Lucky Gunner.
