I ordered this ammo for the first online purchase I ever made. Wow! I picked a winner. Shooting this in my SIG 516 and M&P 15. Both rifles shot great with this ammo and had run several hundred rounds thru the rifles in one day at the range. Had no FTF of FTE's and accuracy was fantastic especially from the SIG. Had a group of less than 1 MOA @ 200 yards with this ammo from the SIG once I got my ACOG zeroed in. (Posted on 6/9/14)

This is an awesome company, super deal for the Lake City Ammo. Delivered in about 3 days due to the weekend but Monday afternoon, Bam! Right at my doorstep. I will be ordering more cans of this ammo, the only reason I'm not ordering more now is because I have to wait until I have the $$$.
Great deal, Super Company, Bad ass Ammo!

Compared to a year ago the ammo is expensive, however, I've seen 2 sights who wanted more than double for the exact same thing. One of them used to be my go to place for ammo, now they want $899.00 for the 420rounds XM855s on Stripper clips. It may be more expensive than a year ago, I look at it like this, I need some good ammo and I won't find a better price anywhere, and I've never had ammo arrive as fast as my last box. Every single round from my last order was flawless, it was able to put up some groups that were near "match quality" ammo. It was the most "clean" looking XM855's i've bought. This ammo is extremely accurate, consistent and easy to load because it's on stripper clips and a "spoon" is included. (Posted on 3/31/13)

My wife just acquired a Smith and Wesson M&P 15 Sporter carbine. I like the fact that this ammo functions very well and is accurate. There have been NO jams, hangs, or mis-fires. Plus this ammo is made of "brass" which does not place undo wear on the breech, nor does it "not" seal like steel cases. I also like the steel ammo box. I placed a silica gel unit in the ammo can so this ammo is ready to store right away. Did I mention that this ammo shoots right through light metal like a hot knife through butter?

Put all 420 rounds through my brand new M&P15T. Not 1 failure of any kind. The rifle still looks brand new in and out. I was hitting 12" steel at 300yds consistently. The stripper clips didn't work great, but who cares. (Posted on 2/7/12)

I've searched thru several web sites and have ordered ammo from several on line dealers. When I cam upon this site I had to give them a try. They met and exceeded my expectation on price, delivery and quality on ammo. I will be ordering more in the near future. Breath slow and squeeze lighty. Center mass every time. (Posted on 11/7/11)

I shot all 420 rds through my AR-15 without a single missfire or jamb. Ammo seams to burn rather clean and is very consistant on the range. The customer service via BulkAmmo is excellent. My order arrived within 3 days. I will continue to purchase from BulkAmmo, You just can't find a better deal! (Posted on 10/23/11)

My first order (and there will be more) from bulk ammo. I ran a couple hundred rounds and had no FTF or FTE. I can't really comment about accuracy, as I was sighting in, so I was making adjustments as I went. I am really quite happy with my purchase. And it gave me an excuse to use my new stripula.

Bushmaster XM15E2S (M4A2) cycled and fired like a dream, seems to be very clean, accurate, no misfires or feed issues through factory mag, and cheap $7.00 Remington mags as well.

Rock River Arms LAR15 again fired equally as well as above.

Note: They don't mention it, but this also includes 1 ea. of a stripper clip guide for speedloading your magazines, or at least my box did. Very functional with a couple minutes of practice. (Posted on 5/26/11)

If you have never shot this in your AR-15/M4 etc, you will not be disappointed this is about the best shooting ammo in the market right now, just be sure your weapon is chambered for 5.56 and not .223, never shoot 5.56 in a weapon chambered for .223 (Posted on 5/22/11)

Q: If there isn't a spoon that comes in the can, do you have them or would I need to look somewhere else?

Posted On: 5/9/13 By: CO_MF

A: While we don't have any extra spoons (also known as "feeders" which remove the ammo off of the clip directly into the magazine) laying around, we have found that Federal is including at least one of these per each ammo can. This is usually laying on the top of the ammo sleeves, inside of the can. If you do not wish to use a spoon/feeder, the rounds may be easily removed from their clips to be loaded manually into the magazine or stored in your box of choice.
Q: Are the 10-round clips stored in cardboard filler sleeves (1 clip) or boxes (2 or 3 clips) or are they bulk-packed (as is)? How much does the ammo can weigh full?

Posted On: 3/26/13 By: Sidney

A: The 420 rounds are loaded on 10 round clips. These clips are packaged into cardboard sleeves of 30 rounds. The full ammo can weighs approximately 18lbs. These are packed into the ammo can to take up the full width of the can. There is usually enough room in the middle column of the can to add 2 50 round boxes of pistol ammo if you choose to fill the can to its maximum capacity. While out of our control, Federal will include a spoon (feeder) for the magazines if there is an excess supply in the market.
Q: How old is this ammo?

Posted On: 3/7/13 By: patriot Shooter

A: This Federal 5.56 ammunition is from a recent production run and should not be older than two calendar years. On previous cans we have noticed most of the brass is stamped with Lake City '11.
Q: I see a lot of shooting ranges will not allow steel-core ammo. This is steel-core ammo and therefore will not be allowed on ranges that restrict such, correct?

Posted On: 2/26/13 By: Russell

A: This is correct. While the rounds are brass cased with a copper jacketed bullet, steel is used inside the core of the bullet. This will make the bullet stick to a magnet for those ranges that "magnet test" the ammo. This ammo is a great choice for any outdoor shooting range.
Q: I'm a little confused. With these rounds, being on "10 round clip" work in a standard AR-15 magazine?

Posted On: 1/27/13 By: Jeff

A: Since the 10rd clips of ammo don't physically insert into your magazine, these will work on any magazine that holds 10 rounds or more. Federal usually includes a spoon, also known as a feeder, that connects the clip to your magazine. From there you may push the rounds off of the clip and into the magazine. If you are shooting a 10rd magazine, 1 full clip from this ammo can will fill your magazine. If you have a 30rd magazine, grab 3 clips of ammo to fill the mag. This spoon will fit on any standard AR-15 Magazine.
Q: I have an AR-15 and have been shooting the PMC .223 ammo. Is it ok to fire this 5.56x45 ammo from my AR-15? Whats the difference, isn't .223 and 5.56 really the same?

Posted On: 2/6/12 By: Jeff

A: The barrel of your AR-15 should be stamped with either .223 or 5.56. You should check the barrel and not the lower receiver, because the two can be swapped without changing what the receiver states the firearm is chambered in. The two are not the same, because 5.56 is loaded to higher pressures, and only the 5.56 chamber is manufactured to safely relieve these pressures. Using 5.56 in a .223 rifle could possibly result in an unsafe condition that would cause excessive wear and improper function.
Q: Is 62 gr too heavy to fire from a 1/9 twist barrel?

Posted On: 10/21/11 By: Anonymous

A: No, this ammo will stabilize out of a 1/9 twist barrel.
Q: Are the ammo cans new or used?

Posted On: 10/18/11 By: Quicksaber

A: This Federal XM855 ammunition features new ammo cans.
Q: On ammo storage I know it should be rotated and used in a first in first out order but how long can you safely store ammo for? What are some good methods for storage and what are warning signs that you should not use it?

Posted On: 10/18/11 By: Zack

A: Ammunition can be stored for many years, but it does not "expire" like food. It should be stored in a cool, dry place. The biggest sign that it should not be used or depended upon is evidence of water or other moisture on the ammo or the packaging in contact with the ammo.
Q: I realize that Federal and Lake City are brands under the Alliant Techsystems Inc. parent company. I received a 1000 round order from you of the Lake City XM855. Are there any slight variations between the the ammo sold under the brand of Lake City versus the ammo sold under the brand of Federal? I am also interested in the quality of the brass because I plan to reload it. The customers that frequent my local gun shop tend to prefer Lake City brass over other brands.

Posted On: 10/13/11 By: Jacob

A: Lake City is a government-owned ammunition plant operated under contract by ATK. It is not a specific brand of ammunition. Federal (FC) headstamp brass can be considered of equal or comparable quality to Lake City (LC) brass. The same goes for ammo, although some Federal ammo may not have crimped primers or sealants on the case mouth.
Q: these are labeled as penetrator rounds, if one was to use these for target practice , how much should the backstop be increased , would 2-3 ft of earth bags work

Posted On: 10/11/11 By: Dustin

A: The penetration in dirt of these M855 rounds will be no greater than any comparable bullet of similar size, weight, and velocity. They are designed to penetrate barriers such as steel helmets.
Q: Will this run in my HK MR556A1?

Posted On: 10/9/11 By: Matthew

A: Yes, this Federal M855 ammunition is essentially what the HK MR556A1 was designed to shoot. It will function reliably in any serviceable rifle chambered in 5.56 mm.
Q: How is this ammo's trajectory compared to the 55g and the 77 grain

Posted On: 10/2/11 By: Jonathan Humphries

A: This ammo will have a slightly longer max effective range than 55gr due to its higher ballistic coefficient, but will not be as effective at range as 77gr. The same goes for wind drift at range. At close (0-300m) ranges, the differences are minor.
Q: Is the ammo can originally for 7.62 or 5.56. If 5.56 saw or bandoleer can. The reason I ask are dimensions are different and inquirer for storage space reasons.

Posted On: 9/29/11 By: Jason

A: This 5.56 ammo comes in a can that is the same size as a standard 30 cal ammo can.
Q: Does this product come with the little "spoons" that you insert the stripper clip into in order to load it into a standard AR15 magazine?

Posted On: 9/29/11 By: Anonymous

A: Yes, this ammo comes with a spoon or stripper clip for loading the ammo into magazines.
Q: What are the dimensions and weight of the ammo can that they come in and is the ammo can a military spec can with a gasket?

Posted On: 9/29/11 By: David Savino

A: The ammo can is approximately 10" by 3 1/2" by 7" and weighs 16lbs. It is a new can with a gasket.
Q: Does this come with a guide / loading tool.

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Anonymous

A: Yes, a stripper clip guide or "spoon" is included with this ammo.
Q: in 5.56 ammo what are the pros and cons to 55gr vs. 62gr? is one a better defense round? Which should I use to deal with my coyote problem?

Posted On: 9/27/11 By: Chuck

A: The terminal performance of 55gr and 62gr 5.56 ammunition is very similar - that is to say, not consistently impressive. Both are designed to be land warfare legal and in the case of 62gr M855, penetrate specific steel barriers at specific distances. You would be far better off with fragmenting ammunition. Either 40/45/52gr ballistic tip/HP or 75/77gr BTHP ammunition would work much better for coyotes.
Q: Do these cases need to be swaged in order to be reloaded?

Posted On: 9/27/11 By: Greg

A: Yes, because these Federal XM855 cartridges were loaded on a military production line, the primers are crimped in place. In order to reload the cases, the primer pockets will need to be swaged.
Q: In the Customer Review section, a comment was made about recieving a feeder clip with this package. Because it does not make any mention of a feeder clip in the product description, is one included in this package? Was the customer mistaken about what they recieved?

Posted On: 9/27/11 By: Dallas

A: One "spoon" used to feed rounds from the stripper clips to the magazine is included with this can of ammo.
Q: Why is the XM855LC AC1 ammo can labeled as, "Not for duty use"? Does this ammo still perform well?

Posted On: 6/15/11 By: Bill O'Claire

A: ATK (parent company of Federal Ammunition) currently operates the Lake City Ammunition Plant to supply our military with mil-spec ammunition for service use. This particular batch of XM855 ammunition according to ATK, "had ballistic variations that were outside of mil-spec". This XM855 ammo which performs great was sold to the civilian market providing a great value to AR-15 shooters. This XM855 ammo provides great penetration and is highly accurate. Additionally, this product is great for long-term storage as it comes packaged in a sealed ammo can.
Q: why are the tips green?

Posted On: 6/1/11 By: tyler

A: Green tips are utilized by ammunition manufacturers on 5.56x45mm cartridges to identify it as an M855/SS109 cartridge. The green tip on the projectile does nothing to alter its performance and is simply a color indicator to easily identify it as an M855 round. The M855/SS109 cartridge contains a 62 gr steel-core projectile and is often dubbed the "penetrator" round named for its ability to penetrate through steel plates. At 600 yards, the M855 bullet is designed to penetrate through .135" steel. At 50 yards, the penetration capability is between .25-.5" with a minimum steel hardness of 1010 according to MIL-C-63989.
