For shooters who value premium performance at an affordable price, this 5.56x45 "Penetrator" ammo by Federal American Eagle is the way to go. Federal's American Eagle brand is known for producing sturdy, well-made cartridges. Each cartridge is crafted using military grade components and assembled according to military specifications.

These 5.56 NATO rounds feature 62gr full metal jacket XM855 projectiles. This style of bullet is very popular for long-distance target shooting and hunting because the steel tip stabilizes the bullet in flight resulting in a high rate of accuracy. Deep penetration of the target is another benefit of these high energy rounds. This ammo uses Lake City brass casings that are Boxer-primed, non-corrosive, and reloadable.

Federal Premium is a reputable American ammo manufacturer who is creeping up on its 100th birthday. A company doesn't survive nearly a century without a superior product and the support of a loyal customer base. Experience the functionality of Federal 5.56x45 ammo, and order your bulk case of 500-rounds today!

A: Hi Jerry! This ammo would work fine in that rifle, for sure. The "45mm" is just a part of the 5.56 cartridge's full name: 5.56x45mm NATO. And remember, your rifle can fire 223 Rem as well.

A: There are no stupid questions! To give you the simple answer, yes: This 5.56x45 cartridge is good for AR-15s. To give you the long answer, make absolutely certain your AR-15 is designed for 5.56x45 before firing this ammo in it. If your rifle is only designed for 223 Rem – a cartridge that is physically identical to the 5.56x45 but loaded to a significantly lower pressure – this ammo will damage and possibly destroy it. Furthermore, an AR-15 can be chambered for any number of cartridges including 300 AAC Blackout, 450 Bushmaster, or 22 LR. "AR-15" isn't synonymous with 5.56x45, but that is its most common chambering for sure. Hope that helps!

A: Hello Jesse, This ammunition is loaded with an SS109 bullet and contains a steel penetrator in the core. It will not be able to be used at any range that restricts steel in the ammo. The brass can be reloaded.
