What’s the point in owning an AR-15 if you haven’t got a ton of 223 Rem to pour into its magazines? Federal’s American Eagle label ammo is one of America’s favorite solutions for high-volume target practice – and it’s made in Minnesota, so you can rest assured your money will go straight to workers who will in turn spend it on ice fishing reels, snowmobiles and cheese.

This range load has an uncomplicated 55 grain FMJBT projectile. Its core and its jacket are both nonmagnetic, and sturdy enough together that they won’t deform before leaving the barrel. The boat tail is essentially an accuracy-enhancing feature, which reduces drag force to promote a flatter trajectory. This bullet will fragment apart if it strikes soft tissue at close range, but it won’t technically expand. It’s best used for hunting game no larger than varmints (and maybe hogs, if you know how to hit the sweet spot).

American Eagle ammunition also features virgin brass cases, the very stuff handloaders need. This ammo is non-corrosive and loaded to achieve the classic M193 load’s 3,240 fps muzzle velocity.

A: Thanks for reaching out Gwen! I don't quite understand your question, but it sounds as though you have a lever-action rifle with a tubular magazine beneath its barrel? I cannot conclude that your rifle is chambered for 22 LR based on the information you've provided – but if it is indeed chambered for 22 LR, then your rifle will be able to fire any of the ammo on this page: https://www.bulkammo.com/rimfire/bulk-.22-lr-ammo
