My AR-15 range ammoon 1/10/2018
I love this Federal 223. It's usually among the cheaper American made options and I've never had any problems in my two AR's. (I shoot Bushmaster and Colt). Would definitely recommend. Fast shipping, good packaging.

- Wondering if you could notify me when this product becomes available? Posted On: 2/16/2021 By: David Currier
- My apologies sir, but we haven't got a system in place to notify our customers when ammo is back in stock. I hope you'll consider some of the other 5.56 we presently have in our warehouse, or check in again soon to see how else we may be of service to you!
- Can I have the ship to my house? Posted On: 11/17/2020 By: Walt Lynch

I hardly expect you to post where you live in the Q&A section, so I welcome you to reach out to our customer service team at email@example.com or 1 (800) 581-0293 to see if we can ship to your doorstep.
- Can this ammo be shot thru a .223 M4? Posted On: 11/24/2012 By: James
- Due to the higher pressures of the 5.56 round, this ammo should only be shot in rifles designed for 5.56 ammo. This can be determined by the caliber stamp on your rifle. .223 Rem ammo is loaded to a lower pressure and will work in your rifle, as well as any 5.56 NATO rifle. While the physical size of both rounds are similar, it is best to avoid excessive pressures of the 5.56 round inside a .223 rifle. If you have any additional questions about this, please let us know!
