The M16 is a military rifle that began seeing service in 1962, and it’s been so widely used and well-liked that multiple versions of it have been made. Not only that but other countries have adopted the M16 for their militaries to use, making it the most-produced gun of this caliber. And what caliber is that? 5.56X45mm, of course. If you own an AR chambered in 5.56, you’ve got the M16 to thank, because the hard-hitting cartridge was first designed specifically to fit the chamber of the military’s M16. It’s a rare gun owner who isn’t a fan of 5.56 for its stopping power, speed, and versatility – and, okay, it’s fun. Your 5.56 has an all-American history, so why not feed it all-American ammunition?
Federal makes this particular 5.56 ammo. They were founded in 1922 by Charles Horn, who got the company off the ground by selling its products in filling stations, barber shops, and grocery stores, and his business approach worked. Federal ended up building and operating the Twin City Ordnance Plant for the government and spent serious time supplying the U.S. military with ammunition through multiple wars. Their ammunition has also been used by Olympic marksmen to win gold medals. Saying Federal is a part of American history is definitely true.
These are lightweight 55 grain rounds so they’re going to reach out and touch your target at stupendous speeds. They’re FMJBT rounds made for target practice, tactical training, and plinking, and because they have BTs they’re a nice choice for honing your long-range shootings skills. Each round moves towards your target with a muzzle velocity of 3240 feet per second and impacts with a muzzle energy of 1282 foot-pounds. These rounds are produced in virgin brass cases with boxer primer and can be reloaded. You get 100 target rounds in this box. Get your hands on this quality American-made ammunition and feed your awesome rifle.
