If you’re a true AR-15 aficionado, then you know these Federal 5.56x45 62 grain FMJ-BT Ball rounds have become a holy grail of sorts for gun lovers. When you find this ammunition, you order it immediately; it’s that hard to locate. These are the popular and fantastic mil-spec M855 steel core 5.56x45 green-tip rounds you’ve heard so much about.
Federal makes all its ammunition to exacting standards, a tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation for decades. They manufacture all components in the same plant they’d had since their founding in 1922; located in Anoka, Minnesota, the company describes it as being nestled between the lake and the woods. And in that building, these spectacular 5.56x45 rounds are being made.
Let’s get down to the details. Muzzle velocity for these sweet green-tipped rounds is 3,160 feet per second, and you just know these pack a punch. This ammunition stabilizes best in rifles with a 1/9 or 1/7 twist rate. And in order to reduce the chance of bullet setback, Federal designed the bullets in these rounds with a cannelure and crimped the case mouth. They’re also sealed to prevent moisture from seeping in. When it comes to brass case – and therefore reloadable – 5.56x45 ammunition, these have exceptional reliability.
There are 500 rounds in this box, and one thing’s for sure: there is no such thing as too much ammunition. When you get your hands on this ammunition, you’ll go through it so fast you’ll wish you’d ordered more. It’s that good. Your AR-15 will thank you, your improved accuracy will thank you, and, since they’re reloadable, your wallet with thank you, too.
(This is 5.56 ammunition. Because it is loaded to a higher pressure, it is not recommended for rifles chambered in .223 Remington.)
