Federal's American Eagle line of ammunition is geared towards shooters looking for economical ammunition. The American Eagle line of ammunition has products in almost every caliber, and mostly uses full metal jacket (FMJ) bullets, which is perfect for range training on a budget.

This 223 Remington ammunition, from the American Eagle line, features a 55 grain full metal jacket bullet, and uses a boxer primed reloadable brass casing. This ammo is perfect for range training with an AR-15 platform rifles, or similar 223 rem semi-auto rifles. These bullets DO NOT have a steel core, and are safe to fire at steel targets. All these attributes also make this ammo a great option for shooting competitions like 3-gun, which use pistol, semi-auto rifles, and shotguns.

This ammunition is produced in Anoka, Minnesota, where Federal Premium Ammunition is headquartered. They employ about 1,400 people at that facility, which supplies quality ammunition all over the country.

A: This American Eagle .223 Remington product is loaded ammunition. No "handloading" or "reloading" procedures are required. This .223 ammunition will fire in both .223 and 5.56 NATO rifles. All components from American Eagle ammunition are non corrosive. The spent casings may be saved for the reloading process if desired.

A: American Eagle loads this, and their other products with non corrosive powder and primers. Their brass is boxer primed and great for reloading. The bullets used for this .223 Rem ammo feature a boat tail design for improved accuracy.

Posted On: 10/10/2012 By: Kevin

A: The "boat tail" is the design at the base of the bullet; this is the portion of the bullet we do not see when it is seated into the brass. The boat tail feature is a property of a full metal jacket bullet. The purpose behind this design is used to improve bullet flight and keep it on track to its intended target. This American Eagle ammo from Federal is considered to be full metal jacket.

Posted On: 9/1/2012 By: Kristi

A: Yes, it is. This product (as well as the rest of the American Eagle line of product) is made in Anoka, Minnesota. Our team has visited this plant on a few occasions and can attest to the quality of the process and the results (we've also shot a lot of it).
