Federal American Eagle Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) 55 Grain 223 Remington Ammo - 20 Rounds
.223 Remington ammo continues to be the medium rifle caliber of choice in the US, both in law enforcement or government uses as well as for civilians. While its main competitor, the 7.62x39 is widely popular for close range knock down, the .223’s versatility in being able to be fired from multiple chambers (5.56 for example) and comparatively inherent accuracy combines well with its relatively low cost of materials. The result is a cartridge that delivers a lot for its size and is popularly reloaded for a wide variety of purposes. Federal’s American Eagle banner offers a 55 grain, full metal jacketed bullet that has a muzzle velocity of 3240 feet per second with 1282 foot pounds of energy behind it. This is the quintessential target and training cartridge for any .223 or 5.56NATO firearm and is even well suited for both formal and informal marksmanship competitions.
American Eagle by Federal delivers the same standard of quality of the company’s Premium lines that the they are well known for yet at a price that keeps enthusiasts at the range longer for less. AE cartridges are manufactured with boxer primers, and Federal cases are among the most desired for reloaders who stretch their range dollars.
