Federal American Eagle Frangible 50 Grain 5.56x45mm Ammo - 500 Rounds
Its high velocity has given the otherwise unimposing 5.56x45 NATO cartridge its impressive ballistic performance. Since its adoption as the primary rifle caliber of twenty-nine nations under the NATO Alliance, its popularity has also expanded to the civilian market for target, hunting as well as civil defense. With so much utility and applications, it is no surprise that regular training is a must. It is equally unsurprising that the very same high velocity trait has typically made the cartridge unwelcomed in indoor ranges where ricochets and overpenetration are an understandable concern. Federal’s response to such factors is the 50 grain soft point frangible bullet. Designed to cycle actions reliably at over 1200 feet per sec from the muzzle, these non-toxic projectiles disintegrate on contact with the backstop making them ideal for indoor ranges as well as close quarter combat training.
Federal ammunition has been providing superior quality munitions to both sportsmen and professionals since the 1920s. A market and popularly approved source of spent brass, thanks to non-corrosive, boxer primers, Federal’s 500 round, half case, provides enough firepower for that upcoming tactical training course or simply keeping on hand for training to even use as an in house defensive round for the M4 clone.
