Remington Arms established Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in 1941 to manufacture and test small caliber ammunition for, as you might imagine, the United States Army. Lake City’s ownership has since changed, but their commitment to producing high quality cartridges that even soldiers can depend on to perform hasn’t changed an iota. They now make over one billion rounds annually!

This 5.56x45mm cartridge sports a 62 grain full metal jacket XM855 steel tip projectile. Its jacket not only means that this bullet will let you go a while in between cleaning your bore, but also that it penetrates targets well. That penetrative ability is further bolstered by this bullet’s XM855 designation. An M855 bullet is specifically engineered to penetrate steel -- the “X” added onto it only means that it didn’t meet exacting military standards, for one reason or another.

These military surplus cartridges are shipped in a water resistant ammo can, making it a great choice if you’re planning a trip to somewhere soggy, or would just like to stock up for a rainy day. These rounds are fully reloadable courtesy of their Boxer primed brass casings, so 500 of them will keep you busy a long time!
