Ammo Overview

Quantity - 20 Rounds per box; 25 boxes per case
Manufacturer - Federal
Bullet - 55gr full metal jacket, boat tailed (FMJ-BT)
Casing - Boxer-primed brass


This 223 Rem cartridge from Federal’s American Eagle line of ammunition is optimized in every way to deliver big at your next target practice session. The round’s bullet weighs 55 grains, which is by far the most common weight for its caliber. The bullet’s full metal jacket will protect your bore against rapid fouling, so you can enjoy tight groupings for a long time in between cleanings. This boat tail bullet’s tapered base conveys a lot of performance advantages as well; It increases both its accuracy and ballistic coefficient, grants it some immunity against the deleterious effects of cross winds, and furthermore facilitates assembly so that the cartridge was less likely to have incurred tiny nicks and scratches that would have impacted its performance. This round’s fast 3,240 fps muzzle velocity lends itself to flat trajectories, and its factory fresh brass casing is the perfect medium for handloading. With these rounds, you will enjoy practically surgical accuracy while you fire -- the range will be your operating room.
