Nearly a century ago, Charles Horn took over a plant in Anoka, Minnesota, and Federal Cartridge Ammunition was reborn. Originally founded in 1916, the company needed Horn’s vision to become the great manufacturer it is today. This Federal .223 55 grain FMJ ammunition is fantastic for target practice, training, and plinking, and its design is the based on decades of experience.
Truly ideal target rounds are affordable, and Federal is both affordable and well-made. Better yet, these rounds are produced in virgin brass, boxer-primed cases, making them reloadable. They’re also designed to be non-corrosive, which is easier on the barrel of your rifle. Shooters say it feeds and ejects reliably while also keeping their rifles reasonably clean. Overall, it’s a nice practice round for dedicated shooters.
These rounds move pretty quickly, too, with a muzzle velocity of 3,240 feet per second. And they’ll put a nice hole in your targets as well with a muzzle energy of 1,282 foot-pounds. Whether you’re looking to spend a relaxing day with targets or want to put focused time into improving your skills, Federal’s ammunition will work well for you.
When you buy this 500-round box, you know you’re buying American-made quality. And the quantity is great for practice or growing your stockpile, so you can’t go wrong. Federal has a reputation built on years of producing ammunition for the military, law enforcement, and sports shooters alike.

Federal doesn't say much about the quality of this ammo but I will. There are few calibers you can spend the day shooting and be able to comb your hair the next morning. For me this is the perfect shooting round. It is fast, flat and deadly up to about 400 yards, and I've hunted almost my whole life. Seldom have I had to shot anything farther than that. With a discount Federal has made my day. By the way, I don't recall ever having a Federal round fail to fire. You can't beat a deal like that. Thank's for the rebate Federal.
