The AR-15 has been around since 1958, and while it’s been popular since its inception it’s certainly gained even greater ground in recent years. These magazine-fed, air-cooled rifles have either direct impingement gas operation systems or piston systems, and today there are more models on the market than you might think. One of those most common misunderstandings about the AR-15 is in its name: the AR. Although some believe those initials stand for “assault rifle” they actually stand for “ArmaLite Rifle” in honor of the company that originally designed them. Of course, one thing about the AR-15 is very well understood, and that is its big appetite.
These are .223 Remington rounds. They’re quite lightweight at 50 grain, which makes them capable of reaching greater speeds when traveling down-range and can also reduce your felt recoil somewhat. As Jacketed Hollow Points they deliver rapid energy transfer immediately upon impact, also expanding in a controlled way for greater penetration and a truly devastating wound track. The jackets also help to prevent lead fouling in your gun’s barrel. Each of these rounds zips towards your target at a muzzle velocity of 3400 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1285 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for varmint control and target practice.
There are 20 rounds in this box of ammunition from Federal. Federal has been in business since Charles Horn founded the company back in 1922. Horn got the business going by distributing ammunition to be sold in grocery stores, gas stations, and barber shops, and before long Federal began to flourish. They were eventually awarded a large contract by the government to build and operate the Twin City Ordnance Plant and, in fact, did so well supplying the U.S. military with ammunition they were awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence. If you want good quality, American-made ammunition from an established, respected company, you want Federal.
