AR-15s are popular guns. They’re versatile and can be used for everything from target practice to home defense to hunting, and they’re fun to shoot. One of the popular rounds for AR-15s chambered in 5.56x45mm is the XM855, the green-tipped Penetrator round. This is a MIL-SPEC round made with a bullet featuring a steel core for superior penetration. These are not armor-piercing rounds but they are powerful enough to blast through steel plate targets. If you have a gun chambered in 5.56 NATO and you’re looking for XM855, you’ve found it.
These particular 5.56x45mm rounds are manufactured by Federal. Each round weighs in at a lightweight 62 grain which is the standard weight for the XM855. Because they are lightweight they’re able to travel towards targets at higher speeds and also help keep felt recoil manageable. These are FMJ, Full Metal Jacket, rounds and do not expand on impact. Target rounds fired from rifles can travel for miles before coming to a stop on their own which is one reason it’s important to have a reliable backstop in place during range time. This ammunition is designed for target practice and plinking.
When you order this box of ammunition from Federal you get a whopping 600 XM855 rounds. Yes, 600. That’s some serious trigger time with these Penetrator rounds. Even better, these rounds are produced using virgin brass cases with boxer primer, so you should police your spent brass for reloading purposes. Each round produces a muzzle velocity of 3020 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1256 foot-pounds. Federal manufactures ammunition at their factory in Anoka, Minnesota according to exacting standards for quality and performance. Order now to feed your 5.56 NATO Penetrator rounds.

- I’ve been truly to purchase as much 62 gr. XM-855 in 556 Ammo as possible as expected most businesses are out of stock. So I was just curious to know if you guys may have some and if not would you email me as soon as you do? Thanks for your time!!!! Posted On: 7/19/2020 By: Tiras Wright

We are constantly sourcing new ammo and update our site as soon as we do, so I hope you'll check back in again shortly to see what we can do for you!
