This cartridge has a 55 grain bullet and 3,240 fps muzzle velocity, so its performance is pretty much apples-to-apples the same as our military’s 5.56x45 ball M193 ammunition. The bullet has a copper alloy jacket for smooth feeding, a cannelure to prevent setback in the magazine, and a boat tail which enhances its ability to retain more momentum downrange.
Federal loads nonmagnetic bullets – no need to fret about whether this ammo will pass your range’s magnet test. This ammo is specifically marketed for target shooting, but this type of bullet does have a habit of fragmenting inside of soft tissue at close range.
These rounds’ brass cases are discolored, but only because new military grade cases are not polished after they have been fortified via heat treatment. You can certainly reload American Eagle brass once their spent non-corrosive Boxer primers have been popped out.
