Bullets - 55 grain full metal jacket boat tail(FMJ-BT)

This 223 ammo is manufactured by Federal under their American Eagle line of ammo and provides a high quality option for shooting your AR-15. This brass-cased ammo is reliable in a wide range of AR-15 platforms and since it is loaded to 223 specs can safely be shot in either a 223 or 5.56 chambered AR-15's. Out of their test barrel, Federal shows a muzzle velocity of 3,240 feet per second although depending on your barrel length your results will differ so we recommend running a chrono on these yourself for those who like to geek out.

This high grade ammo is very dependable and is a main stay for high volume shooters looking for quality practice ammo or want to stash some away for a rainy day. This ammo is loaded in Anoka, MN and is reloadable, non-corrosive, and will not attract a magnet.

A: Thanks for reaching out Robert! I can't in all fairness promise you just when we'll get more of this particular ammo back in stock. We're working our hardest to fill our shelves with it, but too many other factors determine which ammo we offer – especially during what I hope to be the tail end of an ammo drought. If you'd be willing to buy Korean instead of American, then I hope you might consider trying out this 223 55gr FMJBT ammo by PMC: bulkammo.com/bulk-223-ammo-223rem55grfmjbt223abppmc-200

A: Hello Turk, The Federal .223 ammunition does not use any crimped primers. Federal only uses crimped primers in their 5.56 ammunition that is manufactured at the Lake City plant.
