5.56 NATO ammo that’s good to go!
The AR-15 is a wildly popular gun due in part to its versatility and also due to how fun it is to shoot. One point of confusion with these guns is the 5.56 NATO versus .223 Remington debate: can you fire both rounds through just any AR-15? The answer is no. Although these rounds are externally identical they’re internally different. 5.56 rounds are loaded to a higher internal pressure than .223 Remington rounds and also have a different length chamber leade. Firing a 5.56 round through a gun chambered specifically for .223 Remington can cause catastrophic failure. Check the stamp on your gun’s barrel, and when in doubt, contact the manufacturer.
This particular ammunition is made for your 5.56 NATO-chambered gun and is 55 grain, making it lightweight for the cartridge size. Being lightweight means it is capable of moving down-range at higher speeds and also reduces felt recoil. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 3165 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1263 foot pounds. These are Full Metal Jacket, FMJ, rounds and don’t expand on impact but simply penetrate and continue traveling. Always have a reliable backstop in place. This ammunition is meant for target practice, tactical training, and plinking.
When you place your order for this box of ammunition from Independence you get 500 rounds. That’s an awesome number of rounds because it’s going to keep your gun well-fed and you happy for some time. You can hone your marksmanship at length, practicing shot placement and grouping, and still have plenty left over for some fun time plinking. This ammunition is manufactured by Independence at their longtime factory in Independence, Missouri. Independence is a subsidiary of a major, well-respected American company. Place your order today, and feed your gun.
