The .223 Remington round (The M193 version) has stamped its name into history by being the parent case of the 5.56 NATO load. The 5.56 NATO is used all over the world, in all of the current NATO countries, and a few that aren't technically NATO. This combined with the popularity of the .223 for hunting came together to rocket this round into being one of the best and most widely used rounds on the market. There are multiple variations of the .223 Rem cartridge on the open market, many heavier grain weight variants of this round, and quite a few different bullet designs.

These Fiocchi 55 grain FMJBT or Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail loads are completely enclosed in a thick copper jacket with a solid lead core. These rounds also have a "Boat Tail" design to the bullet which helps the gases vent more evenly upon firing, and it allows for better stabilization of the bullet as it leaves the barrel. These FMJBT bullets are loaded into heavy wall, reloadable, high polished, Boxer primed, new, yellow brass cases. These have a screaming fast muzzle velocity of 3,240-feet per second, and they have an impressive muzzle energy of 1,273-foot pounds. These rounds move extremely fast and hit very hard, so they truly are an ideal option for multiple roles. These 50 cartridges are ready to go to the range with you in Fiocchi's awesome "Canned Heat" cans. The Canned Heat line is sealed hermetically with desiccant inside to prevent any kind of moisture from causing problems. At these awesome prices, and packed so efficiently, you can stack multiple cans of this ammo with your gear. Stock your safe up with Canned Heat today.

A: The Fiocchi Canned Heat cans are easy to open.

A: It's difficult to put an exact time frame on how long this ammunition can be stored. Certainly, given the same conditions, this ammunition will last longer than fiberboard-packaged ammunition. But when stored improperly, any ammunition will deteriorate at a faster rate than it would otherwise. The plastic lid can be reattached, but there is a metal lid underneath, as you would see on a tuna can, that which provides the tougher seal against the elements.
