Federal was founded in 1922 by Charles Horn, who made the company successful by starting small, distributing ammunition in gas stations and grocery stores. Of course, the days of buying your ammo at the same place you fill up your truck with costly gas are over, but Charles’ goal was met; Federal became a respected company in the industry, and flourished. Their successes have been many: Federal was awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence for the part in multiple war efforts and their ammunition has been used by Olympic shooters to win gold, silver and bronze medals, and you, too, can make use of their quality products.
At 55 grain these are pretty lightweight rounds, but that does mean they’re capable of reaching your target faster. This is FMJ ammunition designed for target practice, tactical training, and plinking, so if you’re in need of some range time and want to hone your marksmanship skills, this is the way to do it. Each round moves with lightning-quickness, flying down-range with a muzzle velocity of 3240 feet per second, and meets your target with impressive force with a muzzle energy of 1282 foot-pounds. Federal manufactures this ammunition in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, and that means you can burn through this whole box, collect your spent brass, reload it, and feed your gun all over again. These are good quality target rounds, and doesn’t your gun deserve the best?
There are 500 rounds in this box; that’s a nice supply of ammo. With 500 rounds you can spend an incredibly satisfying weekend with your rifle improving your accuracy or blowing away pop cans or you can add on to your ammunition stockpile, because, yes, every shooter should have ammunition at the ready. Not much worse than wanting to get some shooting in and not having the ammo you need to do it. Federal manufactures this ammunition at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota, right where they’ve been making ammo for decades. Your .223 has an enormous appetite; don’t let it go hungry. Order this 500-round box today, and keep your gun happy.

Never had a jam or misfire. Always loads and ejects without issue. I am a big fan of American Eagle and Federal ammunition.
