Winchester didn’t actually make this ammo, in all fairness. That credit belongs to the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, MO, which is the largest ammo supplier in the U.S. Armed Forces’ service. M193 spec ammo is the simplest type of 5.56 you would be issued if you were a service member. It is armed with a 55 grain full metal jacket projectile: a lead-core bullet with a steel-free nonmagnetic copper-alloy shell to ensure smooth feeding and low barrel fouling.
This isn’t dusty old military surplus ammunition. It’s fresh out of the factory, complete with noncorrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases. Don’t fret about the cases’ discolored shoulders. Every 5.56 case would have that same discoloration if it wasn’t polished up for cosmetic purposes. Military-grade cases just aren’t made to look as pretty!
