A: Hello Kevin! Lake City lists the velocity of this round at 3000 fps +/- 40 fps.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
