This cartridge’s muzzle velocity is 3,165 fps, which is perfectly normal for a 5.56 load with a 55 grain projectile. The simple full metal jacket features a lead core, copper-alloy jacket, smooth-feeding and streamlined solid point nose profile, and cannelure to preserve the bullet’s seating depth. Federal’s XM193 FMJ doesn’t contain steel, so no worries if your range has a magnetic ammo ban in effect.
You will immediately notice that this ammo’s brass cases are mottled around their necks and shoulders. To be sure, the noncorrosive Boxer-primed cases are brand new and reloadable. The manufacturer just didn’t enhance the cases’ cosmetic appearance by buffing them up after annealing them for added strength!
