An AR-15 without ammunition is nothing more than an ornate club. Don’t let your fine piece of American hardware go without the ammo it needs to sing the song of its people – stock up on Federal American Eagle 223 Rem instead!

This round’s brass case enthrones a 55 grain full metal jacket boat tail bullet. Its jacket is hard enough to promote smooth feeding and reduced barrel fouling, as well as aerodynamic to provide a flatter trajectory. Its boat tail mitigates how much drag the bullet can generate while it’s in flight, which keeps its downrange velocities faster and its trajectory safer from the influence of wind drift. The FMJBT doesn’t expand inside soft tissue – it will shatter to pieces at close enough range, but you still wouldn’t want to use it for hunting game larger than rodents or maybe coyote.

This ammo’s brass cases are brand new. They’re discolored because they were strengthened through heat treatment, and they weren’t subsequently polished up. That really only matters as far as cosmetics are concerned. American Eagle ammo is also outfitted with non-corrosive Boxer primers that light up exactly when you tell them to.
