Good 5.56x45 ammunition doesn’t grow on trees. It comes from Winchester’s factory, where it is loaded to the same specifications set forward by the United States Armed Forces. Here’s the bulk ammo you need to keep your AR-15’s barrel nice and hot for a dog’s age!

This elementary 5.56 cartridge is loaded with a 55 grain FMJ. It’s all a semi-auto needs to feed on cue and avoid quickly gumming up with lead residue, and its spitzer profile is aerodynamic enough to permit supersonic flight hundreds of yards downrange. This M193 load is an acceptable choice for personal defense.

This nonmagnetic ammo is loaded with brand new brass cases. You’ll notice the cases are gray near their necks, but that’s only because they weren’t shined up after they were fortified via heat-treatment. Order USA VALOR ammo and Winchester will donate a piece of their profits to Folds of Honor, a non-profit which grants scholarships to surviving family of fallen U.S. servicemen.

A: Thanks for reaching out Dave! The ammo currently in our warehouse does have the LC headstamp. I am not aware if Winchester has ever loaded USA VALOR ammo elsewhere, like at their East Alton, Illinois plant, although I can't say for certain whether they would ever change this ammo's production facility.

A: Thanks for reaching out Bruce! To be sure, the U.S. Armed Forces uses essentially the same 5.56 ammunition in combat. Its FMJ projectile is more than capable of quickly neutralizing a threat, and it's likely to fragment apart to track multiple wound channels if it strikes its target at high enoguh velocity. (You can see what that looks like in this illustration: 80percentarms.com/product_images/uploaded_images/test1.1.gif) But to be certain, there are better types of 5.56 for home defense. An expanding jacketed hollow point, soft point or polymer tipped bullet does three important things as it penetrates soft tissue: (A) exerts more of its energy in lateral directions instead of merely forward, (B) gouges out a wider wound channel than 0.224", and (C) significantly reduces the chance of overpenetration which could jeopardize an innocent bystander. Ammo like what you see on this page is certainly reliable enough for target shooting, although higher-quality specialized self-defense 5.56 is less likely to cause a failure to feed or extract which could compromise your ability to defend yourself. I advise ammo that specifically engineered and marketed for personal defense applications, with the understanding that any 5.56 or 223 is poised to neutralize even the most determined threat extremely quickly.
