“When you have an opportunity like this, you can not pass it up.”

-Jason Hornady, Vice President of Hornady

Hornady makes an exceptional bullet, and a fine cartridge as well for that matter. Still, few outfits in the United States are able to produce ammunition at the capacity that the colossal Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Missouri is. That’s why when Hornady was presented with the opportunity to work with the old American institution and create mil spec 5.56x45 ammo loaded with their projectiles, they naturally leapt at it. There is little more that they could do to deliver the absolute best value to their customers, and we’re proud as can be to be able to offer it to you.

This M193 round appropriately sports a 55 grain projectile with a lead alloy core and a gilded metal jacket. Hornady’s jacket not only prevents rapid bore fouling and promotes positive functioning, but is drawn exceptionally concentric to ensure a flat and accurate trajectory. The method in which these 1,000 cartridges have been manufactured represents the height of the industry when it comes to standardization, and Hornady spared none of their dedication to quality control while crafting them. The result is an affordable yet consistent round that will serve you well however you’d implement it.

A: Hi David! Because of the shortage we currently only have this 5.56 ammo in stock. Normally we would have a vast selection comprising every type of 5.56 ammo imaginable. We're constantly sourcing and adding new ammo to our site, though, so I hope you'll check back in with us soon to see what we have in store!

A: Yes Daniel, This Hornady 5.56 55 grain ammo will pass a magnet test. All components are non-magnetic.

Posted On: 9/6/2019 By: Vernon S

A: Hi Veron. That is a tough question to give an answer. Some components are marked by the manufacturer but actually made on a contract basis by other companies. Some components are made in house. This is especially true with rounds loaded at Lake City for a military contract and sold as over-runs. Your best bet for a definitive answer is to contact Hornady. Bear in mind that some companies consider this as proprietary information and are somewhat reluctant to divulge. I

A: Hornady advertises this ammo at a muzzle velocity of 3240 fps. This is nearly the same as all other M193 ammo. The Gilded bullet on this round is not an complete copper jacket. Gilding is the process of adding another metal typically zinc to the copper mix to make it a bit stronger. This results in less copper fouling of the bore. This helps to maintain peak accuracy across many hundreds of rounds.

A: Hi Charles! These cartridges are produced to meet the M193 military specification which requires proof of proper annealing not be polished off of the shell casing. Annealing is the heat-treating process that just slightly softens the brass and is applied to of the neck of the cartridge that mates with the projectile. Many people find this to be counter-intuitive, but skipping the cosmetic polishing step actually insures that you can visually see proof of the mil-spec quality.
