Federal American Eagle Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) 55 Grain 223 Remington Ammo - 500 Rounds
With all the manufacturers of 5.56NATO ammo, both domestically and among other nations, adding the almost identical .223 Remington into the mix is just asking for confusion. As the parent case of the NATO round, the .223 remains usable in the chambers of the latter even though the 5.56 should not be fired in barrels stamped REM. This makes the Remington cartridge more versatile and can be used in both military and commercial firearms.
This bulk 500 round package by Federal is loaded with 55 grain full metal jacket bullets. Expect a muzzle velocity of up to 3240 ft per sec. This of course varies upon the length of barrel being used, but the cartridge is well established for use in all applications from match shooting to target and range training to simple plinking: this 500 round case offers a solution to all.
So dependable is ammunition by Federal that it has become a standard for measuring the merits of new firearms designs by many modern reviewers. There is no question that the ammunition works consistently, so it is the ideal fodder to feed new guns to see how they work. Their American Eagle brand is the range and target line, delivering premium performance in an economy product designed to keep shooters at the range longer for less. As expected, once fired, boxer primed Federal cases are also often accepted barter to custom reloaders.
