Federal's American Eagle line of ammunition is everything you need for a day of hard (or fun) training at the range. Federal is one of the most popular manufacturers in the country, and it is not hard to see why. Their consistent quality, fair prices and year around availability, make them a favorite among all kinds of gun owners.

Each round in this case of 500, is loaded with a 55 grain FMJ bullet, which is ideal for range training, rifle drills, and 3-gun competitions. This ammo will also closely match the ballistic trajectory of 55 grain hunting and home defense rounds.

Federal ammunition is proudly produced in Anoka, Minnesota, using American materials and American labor. Each round is manufactured using Boxer primed brass casings.
