Ammo Overview

Manufacturer - PMC
Bullets - 55 grain full metal jacket M193
Casings - Boxer-primed brass
Quantity - 1000 rounds per case


Frequent AR shooters will find this 1000-round case of PMC X-TAC ammunition ideal for their needs. This case holds 50 20-round boxes of bulk-packed ammo made to M193 military specifications. These rounds offer strong ballistic performance, reliable ignition, and clean burning at a reasonable price.

Each cartridge fires a 55-grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of 3,120 feet per second. The reloadable brass cases are sealed at the primer and neck for long-term storage.

Safety note: This is 5.56 NATO ammunition and will function well in most AR-15 rifles; however, it may not be suitable for sporting firearms chambered in .223 Remington. Check with the firearm manufacturer if in doubt.

PMC X-TAC is a brand of the Poongsan Corporation, a major ammunition manufacturer headquartered in South Korea. Poongsan’s vast production capacity supplies both American shooters and South Korean military personnel, and achieves impressive economies of scale through vertical integration. At the same time, the company ensures the consistency and quality of every batch of ammo through rigorous electronic testing.

A: Thanks for reaching out Michel! I can't guarantee any kind of performance out of a rifle I haven't personally tested, but I see no reason why PMC's M193 spec 5.56 shouldn't function correctly in your S&W.

A: Without a shadow of a doubt, brother! This is PMC's M193 ammo, built to the same specs as the ammo that the U.S. Army issues for field use with the M16 rifle. It's the bread and butter ammo for all your AR-15 target shooting needs, and it will serve well if you need it for personal protection too.

A: Hello Tym, This ammunition is a standard M193 load, meaning it's loaded with a standard 55 grain copper jacketed, lead core projectile. This specific round does not contain a steel penetrator.

A: Hello Scott, According to PMC, the 55 grain M193 5.56 round is also loaded with a FMJBT style projectile.

A: Hello Dar, Yes, the PMC 5.56x45 is the same as NATO 5.56, and is safe to shoot in any firearm chambered in 5.56. The PMC 5.56 rounds are brass cased and boxer primed as well.

Posted On: 5/14/2013 By: Kevin

A: This 5.56x45 ammunition from PMC features a lead core and does not contain any steel in the core or on its jacket. The jacket is a copper composition. These properties mean the bullet will not attract to a magnet which will be allowed in most indoor ranges.
