Nice ammo, great vendor
Review by Curtis Seaflush

The ammo itself is fantastic. The reason I gave it four stars on reliability is because you need to expect some damaged casings. It doesn't say this on the description and they're more banged up than they used to be (in my experience). Bulkammo was great to deal with when it came to rectifying the problem even though I believe it was a manufacturer issue. Cheaper prices, ammo is in stock, great customer service and fastest shipping around is why I always check here first. (Posted on 12/20/13)

fastest shipping ever, 1 jam but due to my son not replacing firing pin after brake down, i was hitting targets at 300 yards with full penatration 1/4 inch steel, honestly it amazed me, going to buy more and redo the range due to no actual range finder available. but even if i was miss calculated range it wasn't by more then 50 yards. Amazing AMMO. I will only shop at Bulk ammo. My AR is my life, simply amazing. (Posted on 11/6/13)

Been buying this stuff since last winter (about 3500rds.) and have fired 400 or 500 rounds. Excellent and consistent performance with exceptional long range characteristics thanks to the 62grs. and the BT after the FMJ. All we need now is base bleed. Now that the sticker shock on all ammo has passed I must say it is a bargain. (Posted on 9/28/13)

I really like this particular round, especially in my 1-7 A2 with a 20" barrel. Bulkammo does a GREAT job of getting my orders shipped out quickly, the prices are always at the bettter end of the scale, and if what I'm looking for is available anywhere it's going to be available here. I really like that they show how much they have in stock so you know you're not going to get a backorder notice, too. With ammo as expensive as it is no matter where you get it, it's nice that I don't have to worry about anything else when I order from Bulkammo. (Posted on 8/22/13)

I've already purchased 5,000 rounds of this steel core AP ammo for my 5.56 M4s and ARs. It's the best penetrating AR round that I've seen even compare with Nato AP rounds. The steel cored tip inside the FMJ makes this particular ammo VERY, VERY nice for instance, if someone was hiding behind a tree 150 yrds. away.....this ammo IS going STRAIGHT THROUGH A 12" diameter oak-- just to tag them behind it!!! I love this ammo; although it's expensive as heck -----But it's a good feeling having 30, 45, 75, and 100 round mags. ALL stocked with this AP, ass-bustin' ammo!! (Posted on 4/24/13)

The shipping was as expected, 3 days later in my hands. The price is high, but the cheapest I have seen on the internet for this quality of ammo. The round count was 27 short, which did not make me happy as I was splitting the order with 2 other co-workers & it was my idea to go the 3-way split, so I took the short end of the stick. Customer service at Bulk Ammo gave me a credit on the 27, but I would rather have gotten the rounds. Overall, I was OK with my purchase & would buy from Bulk Ammo again. (Posted on 4/23/13)

This was my first order from bulk ammo, and I can say that the entire process was outstanding. I ordered on Monday, and it was waiting on me when I got home from work on Wednesday. Having split the order with my boss, I was pleasantly surprised to find the count 15 over (which my boss will never see).

None of this putting it in a shopping cart then told "backorder". Price is slowly creeping down. I noticed it's listed about $40 cheaper today then when I bought it Saturday. How 'bout that too, order it on a weekend/Saturday, gets here Tuesday. Hooah. (Posted on 3/26/13)

With the rush on 5.56 and .223, I decided to get a bulk box to tide me over until prices come back down. Bulkammo has the best price around for 1000 rounds of M855 green tips; everywhere else I've looked is out of stock or charging more than $1 a round.
My box came with 963 rounds, so the measure-by-weight system used by Federal/Lake City shorted me almost a mag's worth, but all in all I'm satisfied with my purchase.
These green tips cycled nicely through my S&W M&P-15, and were plenty accurate for my needs. The brass looks like once-fired so they'll be great for reloading, but I'm sure I'll buy from here again.
My order was filled quickly, and shipping was fast and discreet; the ammunition came overboxed in a nondescript box with the required ORM-D sticker for live rounds. (Posted on 3/14/13)

Lake city ammo runs in your 5.56 AR like 98 octane in your V8. If the desire out weights current prices. This is the stuff to run. Not that bore eating bi metal jacket steel crap from Russia. Careful what you load in your weapon, it could end up wearing out your bore and choking up your gas block. You get what you pay for, just wish we were at 05 prices.

If you need true NATO spec. ammo for your AR this is about the best you can buy. As most people have found out over the years, L.C. is the best. If your firearm is marked 5.56X45 make sure you use 5.56 ammo in it. If it's marked 223cal. use only 223 ammo in it. (Posted on 6/1/11)

Product Question and Answer

Our customer service team has published this Q&A information as a free service to the shooting community. Please note that BulkAmmo.com expressly disclaims any and all liability with regard to how the shooting community might use this Q&A information. See Terms of Use for more details.

Q: Is this NEW production ammo? Not reloaded?

Posted On: 12/26/13 By: Larry

A: Hello Larry, Yes, these 62gr. FMJ rounds in 5.56 by Lake City are new production and not reloaded. They are brass cased and boxer primed so you would be able to reload the cases once fired.
Q: Tell me the difference between the M855 and the XM855. Is this a factory reject or some kind of other blemish?

Posted On: 6/10/13 By: Mike in AZ

A: From a quality and performance comparison, you will not notice a difference between the two. While there is always talk of the XM's being duds and underperforming, we, and our customers have not discovered any issues with these rounds. The X designates the lot numbers that will be used for private/ civilian use versus military/ law enforcement use.
Q: Steel core = is that the equivelant of an AP (Armor Piercing) round?

Posted On: 5/21/13 By: snowrhino

A: The steel core featured in this 5.56x45 NATO green tip round is not classified as an Armor Piercing (AP) round. The steel core will penetrate targets easier than similar rounds without a steel core. The rounds may be prohibited in some indoor ranges as these will not pass the magnet test.
Q: Noticed the green tip on these in the pics. Are these tracer rounds? Need to know since we're in a drought situation where I live and it's very dry where I shoot. LMK and thank you.

Posted On: 3/11/13 By: Andy

A: The green tips on these 5.56x45 rounds indicate the bullet features a steel core. There will be no tracer element included on the bullet. Rounds that have an orange ink painted in place of this green tip will indicate a tracer round.
Q: is this the ammo that can work on my bushmaster or smith & wesson AR15 223?

Posted On: 1/29/13 By: Andy

A: If your rifle ( Bushmaster, S & W etc.) has a marking of .223 Rem but does not include 5.56x45 NATO, the rifle has been designed to shoot .223 ammo only. The 5.56x45 is very similar, though its increased pressure may be unsafe for the .223 chamber and is simply not worth the risk shooing. If you rifle has both caliber markings, or just 5.56, both 5.56 and .223 ammo will work in your rifle.
Q: Is the 5.56 x 45 ammo the correct ammo for the Colt AR 15 model 6720 Thank you!

Posted On: 12/22/12 By: Mark L

A: Correct. This 5.56x45 NATO ammo will work well for your Colt. The rounds do contain steel which may not be allowed in some indoor ranges. This will not cause any harm to your rifle. The brass casings are excellent for reloading and do not contain any corrosive components.
Q: Can I back order the ammo 1000 Rounds of 5.56x45 XM855 Steel Core Ammo by Lake City - 62gr FMJ ??

Posted On: 3/20/12 By: Dave

A: We do not do back orders, but we have other quantities of XM855 in stock at the moment. It would be best to buy while you can instead of waiting for the larger quantity.
