Federal's excess production at LCAAP is sold to the commercial market; it is essentially identical to the M193 ball ammo used for training by the military, and enjoys strong popularity among shooters due to its solid performance, reasonable cost, and military provenance.
Each cartridge in this box of 150 fires a 55 grain boat tailed full metal jacket bullet at 3,240 feet per second. This ammo uses non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases. The brass has a "stained" appearance at the case mouth due to the annealing process, which strengthens the case to withstand the pressures of rifle-caliber ammo. These marks are sometimes polished away for cosmetic reasons in commercial ammo, but are left in place on mil-spec ammo to show that the cartridges have been processed correctly.
