These cases have discoloring around the neck as a result of the annealing process carried out to give the brass added strength. While many .223 rounds have these markings polished away, 5.56 mil-spec loads leave these markings intact to provide visual assurance that the cartridge is constructed properly.
Federal brass is made in the USA and is used by the US military as well as countless reloaders.
