Is your AR-15 chambered in 5.56x45 NATO? Do you want to be a high-volume shooter? And are you looking for high-quality American-made target ammunition? These Federal 5.56x45 55 grain FMJBT rounds are made to stringent standards so you can spend dedicated time improving your marksmanship skills with your 5.56x45 NATO-chambered rifle. 5.56x45 NATO is an intermediate cartridge that was first created specifically for the military’s M16, and today it has gained popularity with shooters worldwide. Although it is similar to .223 Remington, it should not be confused with the lower-pressure cartridge. If you’re not sure whether or not your rifle is chambered for 5.56x45 NATO, check with your manufacturer before putting these hotter rounds through your gun.
These are FMJBT rounds, so they’re meant for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. That means that with this ammunition, you can punch holes in paper or blow away rows of cans to your heart’s content. Their boat tails make them a nice choice for honing your long-range skills as well, because they resist cross-wind interference better and also maintain a more even trajectory. At 55 grain they’re fairly lightweight for the cartridge and that helps them reach greater speeds while also reducing recoil somewhat. This ammunition has an astounding muzzle velocity of 3,132 feet per second and an impressive muzzle energy of 1,198 foot-pounds.
There are 900 rounds of American-made ammunition in this box, so you can be the high-volume shooter you’ve always wanted to be. They’re also loaded on stripper clips in groups of ten for faster loading. We’re confident you’ll burn through this box of ammunition faster than you think, though, so don’t be surprised when you’re back for more, fast. Federal produces all their ammunition at their longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota. You’re a dedicated shooter, so you need good quality, American-made ammunition, and this is it. What are you waiting for?
(Although 5.56x45 NATO does fit in a .223 Remington chamber, the 5.56 is a military, high-pressure round and is not recommended for use in a .223 Remington chamber.)
