The AR-15 has become a popular choice for home defense in recent years. Proponents argue greater maneuverability and stopping power, and there is definitely truth to their claims. Long guns allow you to shoot from cover without exposing as much of your body as a pistol requires and they do offer higher velocity and greater energy as well. And unlike shotguns, rifle rounds are far more likely to stop traveling if you miss and your round flies into the wall instead of your attacker. Of course, you should be loading your AR-15 with defense rounds if you’re using it for home defense, but if you want to get some lower-cost target practice in, grab some of these target rounds.

At 55 grain these are pretty lightweight rounds for the .223. Being lighter weight they’re going to reach higher speeds and they’re still heavy enough to punch through stationary targets. They’re FMJBT rounds and best for target practice, tactical training, and plinking; their BT makes them good for working on long-range shots because they’re better able to resist cross-winds. Each round zips down-range with a muzzle velocity of 3240 feet per second and impacts targets with compelling force at a muzzle energy of 1282 foot-pounds. Federal produces this ammunition in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, so they’re reloadable, and they’re non-corrosive, so there’s less friction in your gun’s barrel.

You get 20 rounds when you order a single box of this target ammunition. It’s made by Federal, a company that’s been in business since 1922 and has a long reputation of dedication to quality and shooters like you. Federal was heavily involved supplying the military with ammunition throughout multiple wars, even receiving and Army-Navy “E” for excellence for their involvement; they’re loyal to their country, too. Ammunition is manufactured at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota, and must meet their strict requirements before leaving the factory. If you use your AR-15 for self-defense you’d better get some focused target practice in, so order now and feed your rifle.
