Federal American Eagle Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) 55 Grain 5.56x45mm Ammo - 150 Rounds
The ubiquity of the 5.56x45 cartridge is unsurpassed; perhaps the only other cartridge that is so heavily used, besides the 9mm Luger, would be the .22 Long Rifle. This is largely thanks to its high performance to low cost ratio. Used by every nation in the NATO Alliance, it is manufactured by dozens of other countries for both domestic and commercial export. Federal’s American Eagle brand, however is US made to military specifications. These XM193 failed to meet US military regs but for reasons other than actual performance. Made available to the public at a competitive price, the 55 grain, full metal jacketed bullets had a muzzle velocity of 3165 feet per second while being pushed by over 1200 foot pounds of energy. These cartridges are ideal for firearms familiarity, target shooting and, yes, even formal competitions.
American Eagle by Federal is ammunition that is trusted all over the country for use in target practice, and plinking to official matches where consistent performance is key. Federal has been making sporting ammunition since the 1920’s and maintains that reputation for dependability to this day by being a benchmark of quality performance. These 150 rounds are made on reloadable, brass cases for further value to US reloaders.
