223 (5.56) Ammo

.223 Remington ammunition and 5.56x45 NATO are closely related and sometimes interchangeable cartridges depending on the firearm they are to be used with. Manufacturers typically offer guidance on this point. In general, the 5.56 NATO ammunition the military uses and is for sale to the civilian market operates at higher pressures than .223 Remington ammo. Most, but not all, AR-15s are chambered for 5.56 NATO and can fire both types of ammo.

Many loads in both calibers follow the M193 or M855 standard, both of which are military specifications. M193 ammo typically fires a 55 grain full metal jacket bullet at 3,240 feet per second, while M855 ammo fires a heavier 62 grain FMJ bullet at about 3,100 feet per second. These common standards are very helpful when sighting in your optics and you'll find both cartridges in-stock and available in cheap bulk packs here at Widener's

Certain specialized loads deviate from these common standards. Competition grade .223/5.56 ammo fires a heavier bullet (most commonly a Sierra MatchKing) in the 77 grain range to provide better stability and more predictable trajectories; varmint loads, on the other hand, fire light 30-40 grain bullets at very high velocities to produce lethal fragmentation against pest animals.

One of the most sought after range loads for this caliber is Lake City ammunition, which is produced by Federal Premium Ammunition at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, Missouri. LCAAP production is typically excess from government contracts and is popular due to its military origins and high quality.

    The Big Bad Wolf was an idiot. There he was, trying to blow down a house made of bricks, when what he should have done was kick down the Third Little Pig’s door and indiscriminately spray inside the home with an AR-15. Maybe that is a little dark, though, even for a classic fairytale.

    In any event, there’s no wonder which ammo the Big Bad Wolf would have chosen for so wanton an act of mayhem: these 223 Rem cartridges by Wolf itself. Because wolves don’t work, he would have greatly appreciated these rounds’ low cost steel casings, which still feed and extract reliably thanks to their glossy polymer coating. He would have approved of the round’s responsive primer, as well as its charge of clean burning propellant. And while this round’s 55 grain FMJ projectile may not be optimal to pepper a hog with, that the Big Bad Wolf could easily have afforded to dump a whole magazine of these rounds would have more than compensated for that shortcoming.

    Load up on some high quality, low cost ammunition for your favorite AR or other .223/5.56mm caliber rifle. PMC Bronze ammunition comes from South Korea out of the some of the most sophisticated and efficient manufacturing plants. A length of experience producing ammunition for NATO countries as well as adherence to U.S. standard tolerances has a resulted in inexpensive ammo with high reliability.

    These cartridges are constructed using reloadable brass casings fitted with non-corrosive Boxer primers and topped by full metal jacket boat-tail (FMJ-BT) bullets. The bullets weigh in at 55 grains which is a standard across the board for the caliber and will stabilize with the widest ranges of barrel lengths and twists. In addition, the boat tail tapered rear of the bullet reduces drag and increases accuracy. This bulk pack of 1,000 rounds is great to stock up on for matches and classes and has been specifically recommended by some training companies like the United States Shooting Academy (USSA).

    Ammo was nicely boxed and performed great.

    It was low priced. But I was pleasantly surprised that it was boxed well in 20 round boxes and it looked great. Performed well too, just as all remington ammo has in the past. I like the brass, its a little heavier than other makes and reloads well.

    even better than expected

    I was looking for better accuracy than I'd found with _ _ _ _ M193 type ammo and reviews indicated the PMC was the answer. Bought a case to function test a new M-4(gery) for another shooter. This ammo is topnotch-more accurate than the carbine's owner can utilize. I just wish I'd bought two cases and kept one.

    Great ammo with a great price!

    Great price for 1000 rounds. 200 rounds through my Daniel Defense so far and had no problems. Need to order more before Jan 1 since I'm in CA.

    200 Rounds Fired So Far: 0 Complaints

    The ammo came in a convenient packaging of 20 rd boxes. Convenient to load two mags of 10 rd each (in the pathetic state of CT, that's all we're allowed). No issues with the firing or ejection. Tight grouping at 25 yards after sighting in. Haven't tried 100 yards yet. No complaints

    Good quality ammo, runs great, never had an issue, run it in AR and COLT M-16 in full auto.

    Fired 3000+ Rounds, not a single issue

    PMC Bronze is great ammo. Im on my fourth case right now, and I love it. Zero failures. With my Daniel Defense 16" Carbine and an ACOG I was effortlessly hitting 24" square steel at 500yds with 55gr! I prefer it to other ammo as most other brand 5.56 has the dirty looking annealing burn marks on the neck of the cartridge, but PMC takes the time to polish that off. It doesnt affect function of course, but it is a really nice touch. Quality ammo, buy with confidence.

    Get your fill of M855 style ammo with this 1000 round bulk pack of PMC's X-TAC NATO 5.56mm. Just like milspec M855, these rounds use 62 grain bullets with light-amor penetrating* steel tips which are painted green for easy identification. As a result, these rounds will match ballistic tables and ballistic drop compensation (BDC) reticles commonly used with modern low power scopes. The reloadable brass casings are annealed at the neck and shoulder for added strength (useful to reloaders) while the non-corrosive Boxer primers are bordered by moisture-blocking sealant. The bullets are full metal jacket (FMJ) and possess toothed cannelures to prevent projectile setback.

    PMC is a South Korean based company that sources its ammunition from plants that supply to the ROK military as well as other to other NATO countries. Their X-TAC line is highly regarded for adhering to stringent military specification while still maintaining an inexpensive price for all shooters.

    *While this is not armor-penetrating ammunition by definition, some ranges will not allow these rounds to be fired indoors nor outdoors on certain steel targets.

    VG ammo..GREAT price

    Less recoil and less flash than W-W and at a much better price..will definitely buy more

    Review by bmoose (Posted on 7/24/2022)

    Best M855 I’ve shot

    I’ve purchased dozens of cases of PMC XTAC M855 because they shoot great in both my 16” 1:7 spin carbine and my 20” 1;9 barrels. Also, they have EXCELLENT brass cases for reloading and last many reloads/firing cycles.
    If you want to store these long term, they are sealed completely and should last for decades if stored in a clean sealed container.
    BTW, when I started buying these ~10 years ago, they $.17/rnd. Save your brass even if you don’t reload yourself.

    Best M855 round

    This is the best M855 ammo I've ever bought. It's not second class or third class M855 like what Lake City is that the public can purchase. PMC sale first rate M855 to the public at a fair price and it's very clean brass.

    IMI Systems (previously known as Israel Military Industries) makes a lot of neat stuff. We sadly cannot ship you an Uzi or Desert Eagle, but we’ve got plenty of IMI’s factory fresh (i.e. not military surplus) 5.56x45 M193 ammunition in stock!

    The M193 specification calls for a 55 grain full metal jacket. That’s the most popular choice of projectile for target practice with the AR-15 rifle thanks in no small part to its accurate yet economical design. The FMJ’s solid lead core is wrapped in a gilding metal jacket to ensure smooth feeding in a semi-automatic. The FMJ may fragment apart if it pierces a soft medium at a high enough velocity, but it cannot exhibit true terminal expansion. IMI’s M193 ammo is loaded with nonmagnetic projectiles.

    IMI’s noncorrosive Boxer primers and never-before-fired brass cases make their ammo optimal for handloaders. Pay no mind to the gray discoloration surrounding the cases’ shoulders and necks. Military grade brass cases aren’t polished after they are annealed for added suppleness, but that doesn’t affect their performance or reloadability one iota.

    We serve a lot of reloading enthusiasts here at Widener’s. Reloaders are people who generally turn their noses up at steel cased ammo, which means they have little use for Wolf’s regular stuff. But Wolf Gold is an exception. Not only does this 5.56x45 cartridge have a reloadable brass case, but its bullet is nonmagnetic for compliance at indoor ranges!

    Wolf gave this round a 55 grain FMJ, the bullet of choice for training, target shooting and spur of the moment plinking. The FMJ utilizes an economical, smooth feeding, and clean shooting design instead of one that delivers terminal expansion. Wolf’s concentric copper jacket and pure lead core offer decent target grade accuracy. At a muzzle velocity of 3,250 fps this round achieves in-flight and terminal ballistics comparable to the ball M193 load.

    Wolf’s brass case boasts a concentric neck, consistent wall thickness, and non-corrosive Boxer primer. It’s ready for round two at your reloading station as soon as you’ve fired it. This round’s smokeless propellant burns clean to create a steady chamber pressure. Just take care that it may be too much pressure for a rifle chambered only for 223 Rem to handle.

    Look no further for affordable mil-spec ammo for your AR-15! These 5.56 NATO cartridges from PMC come packaged in a bulk priced case of 1,000. Each case contains five "battle packs" of 200 rounds each. These packs are sealed in lightweight, weather-resistant plastic for easy transportation and storage.

    Each round in this case of 1,000 follows the M193 specification, firing a 55 grain full metal jacket bullet at 3,240 feet per second.

    PMC brand ammunition is manufactured by South Korean defense contractor Poongsan, one of the largest suppliers to the Republic of Korea Armed Forces. It uses non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases.

    The X-TAC line from PMC more closely follows the same specifications used for manufacturing military grade ammunition. As a result, this 1000 bulk pack of 5.56mm has a few features that you won't find in usual lots of inexpensive ammo. These XP193 rounds are great for rainy day storage, high round count classes, practice sessions, fun plinking, and building a ballistic chart close to NATO-spec M193.

    Like M193, these XP193 rounds feature 55 grain bullets which are compatible with the widest range of barrel lengths and twists of AR, SCAR, ACR, and other 5.56x45mm chambered rifles. The full metal jacket boat tail (FMJ-BT) projectiles feature a toothed cannelure which prevents round setback during rough handling or repeated loading and live ejection; bullet setback can affect accuracy or even cause catastrophic firearm failure. In addition, the reloadable brass casings have a consistent coat of sealant surrounding their non-corrosive Boxer primers which prevents moisture from entering the cartridge and creating dud rounds. The casings are also annealed for added strength to prevent pressure-induced malfunctions and guarantee long brass life for reloaders.

    PMC ammunition is produced in South Korea on some of the same tooling and machines used to supply NATO countries with war-fighting ammo. These bulk packs are highly regarded among American shooters for their inexpensive cost, high reliability, and adherence to M193 specification.

    This 5.56x45 ammunition by Magtech offers mil-spec performance at a reasonable price for your AR-15 or other 5.56 rifle. Each cartridge in this case of 1,000 fires a 55 grain full metal jacket bullet at a muzzle velocity of 3,265 feet per second (20” test barrel), right in line with the M193 specification.

    This ammo is loaded in Brazil with non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases. CBC (which produces ammo under the Magtech, MEN and Sellier & Bellot brands) is one of the largest defense contractors in the world, and has extensive experience producing quality military grade ammunition.

    This ammunition’s brass cases are brand new. The brass is only darker around the case neck because it was annealed at the factory (a process which strengthens brass) without subsequent polishing. The discoloration is purely cosmetic and will not impact performance in the slightest.

    Some people want the closest possible performance they can get to their 223 Rem self-defense ammo – without having to pay extra to actually fire it at the range. Some people aren’t as serious about training, and just want something reliable for target practice with their AR-15 rifles. Hornady TAP Training series ammo is the perfect choice for both customers!

    Hornady’s nonmagnetic and non-expanding FMJ is seated in a premium reloadable brass case. Their primers won’t rust your rifle, and their powder won’t quickly blacken its insides with thick fouling. Ten boxes per 13.8 lb case.

    Forget about 5.56x45 M193 ammunition, with its weak solid lead core FMJ bullets. Real operators want 5.56x45 M855 ammunition, which has strong steel core bullets!

    This AR-15 round’s FMJ doesn't have a pure steel core, of course. Only the frontal section of the M855 bullet’s core is made of steel, but that’s all it needs to rip through sheet metal like it’s made out of gingerbread. This ammo’s magnetic bullets aren’t suitable for use at all commercial ranges, and they will probably damage AR500 targets, but M855 ammo is still great to have on hand for casual target shooting and serious self-defense scenarios alike.

    At 62 grains, the M855 bullet is a little heavier than the usual M193 load’s 55 grain bullet. That gives it greater momentum downrange, which in turn promotes tighter accuracy. Just make sure you have a barrel with a 1:8 or 1:9 twist if you want to witness that accuracy in person!

    This is new production ammo from Illinois, not something that has been gathering dust in a U.S. Army storeroom. It has non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases, the latter of which have been very obviously heat treated for added suppleness.

    This case of ammo contains exactly 600 bangs for your AR-15 rifle. Use those bangs to make yourself a better marksman at the range, or just to play around with your latest build in your backyard (assuming you live in the kind of place that tolerates backyard rifle use).

    Winchester’s USA series 5.56x45 ammo is rudimentary – but that doesn’t mean it’s low-quality. Each cartridge in this case is loaded with a consistent 55 grain full metal jacket projectile, and achieves the 3,180 fps muzzle velocity a rifle needs to cycle reliably and spit out flat, accurate trajectories.

    The FMJ will not expand inside of soft tissue, although its tendency to fragment following high-velocity impact would spell a difficult time for any threat you were forced to neutralize with this range ammo. This is nonmagnetic ammo: Those jackets are made of copper alloy, and their cores are solid lead.

    Winchester’s new production ammo is loaded with non-corrosive Boxer-primed brass cases. These are not reloaded. They are discolored around their mouths, but that’s only because Winchester does not make their military grade cases pretty by polishing them.

    Are you looking for a military grade solution for all of your target shooting, plinking, and training needs? Then this rugged 5.56x45 cartridge from Hornady’s Frontier line of ammunition is ready for action. It is loaded at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, and accordingly all of its components are thoroughly up to snuff. You can make great use of this round’s rugged brass casing at your reloading bench, provided you’ve the means to deal with a military primer crimp. That’s hardly a problem if you know how to go about it.

    This cartridge sports a 55 grain projectile. The gilded metal jacket wrapped around its lead alloy core hardens it substantially, allowing it to prevent lead fouling and penetrate most common targets on impact. The bullet’s concentric jacket and extremely fast muzzle velocity give it a nice, flat trajectory, the sort you could depend on to hit varmint-sized targets if you so wished.

    Winchester’s USA label doesn’t just stand for American-made. It stands for consistent quality and satisfying target-grade accuracy that you’ll want to take with you whenever you visit the range.

    Winchester manufactures their white box ammo specifically for the civilian shooter. They did load this 5.56x45 ammo to our military’s M193 specifications, however, which means it offers the same kind of performance which most veterans of the Armed Forces must already be familiar with.

    This cartridge has a 55 grain full metal jacket projectile. At that weight it achieves a steady 3,180 fps muzzle velocity, which will keep it traveling at supersonic speed until around 700 yards – well beyond the 5.56’s effective range. The FMJ’s hard jacket promotes positive functioning in a semi-auto courtesy of its ability to feed smoothly and prevent rapid fouling. This round’s FMJ cannot expand inside soft tissue, although it may fragment apart at higher velocities.

    This ammo also sports virgin brass cases. You will notice that they are discolored in the areas where they were annealed, which indicates that the brass is elastic enough to return to its original dimensions after ignition. Alongside their non-corrosive Boxer primers, that makes this ammo’s cases perfect for handloaders.

    You didn’t put together the world’s sweetest AR-15 rifle just because you want to show it off to your buddies. No – you actually want to fire the thing as well, which is why you need no less than one full case of Winchester’s famous white label ammo. These range loads are made in Illinois and ready to deliver the consistent performance you need for any kind of recreational target shooting. Good to have in store for an ugly situation as well!

    This cartridge is equipped with a 55 grain bullet. At that weight it’s able to leave an rifle barrel at a velocity of 3,240 fps, just like the U.S. Armed Forces’ equivalent M193 round. The aerodynamic bullet achieves a 0.274 ballistic coefficient, so it won’t even have to rise by 6” when you’re aiming for the 300-yard target line!

    Although this round’s bullet is capable of fragmenting apart into shrapnel as it pierces soft tissue, the non-expanding FMJ is typically favored for plinking and training. This is a steel-free bullet, so you’re A-OK to take it to ranges which prohibit magnetic ammo. The bullet’s resilient jacket resists deformation and jamming during feeding, and its full cannelure wards off setback in the magazine.

    USA label ammo has new and durable brass cases. You’ll notice they’re gray around their shoulders, but that’s just the natural result of fortifying heat-treatment. These rounds’ non-corrosive Boxer primers make them repeatedly reloadable!

    Here’s a fun experiment you can try: Go to your nearest Army base and ask them if you can please have some of their 5.56x45 ammo. They will tell you no, and they’ll probably look at you funny. But you can still get that ammo thanks to Federal!

    This M193 ammunition is exactly what our Armed Forces would use. It’s even made at the same factory, but its designation is XM193 because it is loaded specifically for the civilian market.

    This cartridge has a nonmagnetic FMJ projectile. Its gilding metal exterior hardens the bullet to prevent deformation during ignition, and it also helps to keep lead away from a barrel’s rifling. Encircling the its midsection is a cannelure that helps prevent the bullet from shifting around in its seating. At the base of the bullet is a boat tail, a feature that helps it retain greater velocity downrange so it can fly straighter and hit harder on impact. This is a non-expanding bullet, although an M193 does have a tendency to fragment as it burrows into soft tissue.

    Ammo that’s loaded by the Lake City Army Ammunition plant receives virgin brass cases. They may look like they’ve already been fired, but that discoloration is in fact the natural byproduct of the heat-treatment process which makes brass more supple. Military-grade non-corrosive Boxer primers always spark up on cue, and they’re replaceable so you can reload this ammo’s brass cases!

    Crack into a big box of 223 Rem ammo and start doing your best shooting! This bulk pack of 1,000 rounds comes all together in one big cardboard box. Open it once, and it’ll be as open as its ever going to get!

    Winchester’s USA line of ammunition is an old favorite among shooting enthusiasts all across the country. This 223 cartridge delivers essentially identical performance to the U.S. military’s 5.56 M193 load. Its 55 grain bullet is loaded to a muzzle velocity of 3,240 fps, and as an FMJ it’s perfect for plinking, training and target shooting. This bullet’s jacket wears a cannelure that puts a stop to setback under recoil force, and it is completely nonmagnetic for range compliance purposes.

    This reloadable ammo’s non-corrosive Boxer primers are socketed inside newly minted brass cases. You’ll notice the brass is darker around the case mouth – that’s just a harmless byproduct of the heat-treatment process Winchester uses to strengthen their cases, not the result of having been previously fired.

    Each cartridge in this 20-round box propels a 55 grain full metal jacket bullet at 3,130 feet per second. This load's external ballistics are comparable to those of M193 ball ammo.

    This ammunition is made in Russia using non-corrosive Berdan primers and non-reloadable steel cases with friction-reducing polymer coatings.

    Wolf Ammo has recently told customers to not use their 223 Rem ammo in any Smith & Wesson M&P 15 rifles. We highly recommend you follow their warning until you hear otherwise.

    Has your AR-15’s barrel been cold for way, way too long? We hate to hear it! That’s why we’ve got just the thing in store to warm it up: 800 rounds of Winchester’s American-made 5.56x45, packaged in four easy to transport boxes. If you bring all this goodness to the range, then you’d might as well pack a lunch while you’re at it!

    This ammo’s all about target practice. Its 55 grain bullet and clean-burning powder grant it a muzzle velocity of 3,270 fps – extremely normal for the 5.56x45, and exactly the kind of performance semi-automatic rifles are designed to operate around. You can fall back on ammo like this for home defense should the need ever arise, and you don’t have to worry about its steel-free bullets if you patronize a range with a magnetic ammo ban in effect.

    Winchester equips their standard target loads with non-corrosive Boxer primers and freshly drawn and cut brass cases. This is not factory remanufactured ammunition, nor is it military surplus. Any discoloration on its cases is the purely cosmetic result of annealing, a heat-treatment process which yields stronger, more reliable brass.

    Winchester manufactures this USA VALOR series ammo according to the U.S. Armed forces’ M193 specifications, which makes it the most basic kind of 5.56 on the market. Your AR ought to love feeding and firing this ammo’s 55 grain FMJ projectiles, which are both nonmagnetic and capable of terminal fragmentation following impact with soft tissue at high enough velocities (typically ~2,600 fps).

    This new production ammunition is loaded with non-corrosive Boxer-primed military-grade brass cases. Winchester saves a step by not polishing the brass after it has been fortified via heat-treatment (aka annealing). Any discoloration you notice will have zero effect on performance. Part of Winchester’s proceeds from this ammo goes to Folds of Honor, a non-profit scholarship foundation for family members of fallen servicemen.

    Frontier ammunition is loaded for Hornady by the U.S. government’s own Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, Missouri. It’s high quality stuff – especially when Hornady arms it with their superior HP Match projectiles!

    This round’s 55 grain hollow point is not designed to expand as it penetrates soft tissue. The narrow opening in its nose indicates that the bullet’s swaged lead core is perfectly form-fitted to its jacket, where it was poured into place. The HP Match’s evenly distributed core is complemented by Hornady’s signature AMP jacket, which is a virtually perfectly concentric copper shell.

    This balanced bullet is also extremely aerodynamic. Its graceful secant ogive geometry gives way to a ballistically efficient boat tail. When the bullet is fired through a 24” barrel to achieve a G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.254, its velocity remains at least Mach 2 until it reaches the 275-yard line!

    This ammo’s uniform brass cases ensure smooth cycling through any bolt-action or semi-auto, and its matched primers and propellant serve up consistent recoil and ballistics. One 500 round case is divided among 25 boxes, so you can pass some along to your range pals (but you won’t want to).

Whether you want to spend a lot of quality time with your rifle at the local gun store’s big range or your buddy’s backyard plinking gallery, Federal’s American Eagle 223 Rem ammo cannot be beat!

    This round is all about serving up consistent target grade accuracy. At 55 grains, its bullet is light enough to deliver a fast 3,240 fps muzzle velocity. And because the bullet’s sharp nose profile and low-drag boat tail base are so ballistically efficient, the FMJBT is going to stay supersonic beyond 750 yards. Good luck hitting a target at that range!

    Federal’s gilding metal jacket does not contain any steel. That and this bullet’s solid lead core won’t do anything funny to a magnet, so you have free license to fire this Minnesotan-made ammo at any range on your radar. This ammo also has uniform brass cases to promote reliable feeding and cleaner ignition. Can you reload it? You bet you can!

    These .223 Remington rounds from Federal utilize many of the features that go into premium 5.56x45mm milspec rounds but without the increased cost. Each round is built using a reloadable brass casing mated to a non-corrosive Boxer primer via solid seating and primer sealant; this compound prevents moisture from penetrating through to reach the clean-burning propellant. The casings are also firmly crimped to the toothed cannelure of each bullet to prevent setback and optimize reliability.

    The projectile used in this cartridge design is a non-penetrating, 62 grain full metal jacket boat tail (FMJ-BT) bullet that is not attracted to a magnet. The rear curvature of the FMJ-BT shape resists drag and is less susceptible to in-flight shift. This combines with a well-studied 62 grain weight to provide shooters with accurate and predictable ballistic performance. Federal's American Eagle line is intended to be a low-cost plinking solution that doesn't skip out on quality enhancements.

That means you get to benefit from the work of one of the finest military-grade ammunition producers in the whole world! This round’s brass casing is top notch stuff, the kind you can depend on to cycle efficiently and be of great value time and time again at your reloading bench.

    Hornady would never let anyone else make one of their bullets, though -- that’s their forte. As such this round’s 68 grain projectile features its maker’s signature AMP jacket, which has virtually zero variation in its concentricity, as well as a swaged lead core, ballistically efficient boat tail, and perfectly centered hollow point meplat. This is a bullet that begs to be used in a competition, although for the round’s price tag you won’t mind doing whatever you like with it!

The BTHP Match’s secant ogive profile also promotes better balance, and alongside its tapered base ensures the bullet retains sufficient momentum to achieve an impressive 0.355 G1 ballistic coefficient.

    This round’s 2,960 fps muzzle velocity was recorded using a 24” barrel. A 1:8” twist barrel is optimal for a 68 grain bullet like this, but you’ll certainly get by with a 1:9” or 1:7” twist as well. Although a hollow point by design, the BTHP Match is not engineered to deliver terminal expansion.

    This Frontier label ammo is loaded with military-grade brass cases, Boxer primers and clean-burning powder. The cases are brand new, visibly annealed and perfect for handloading!

    Winchester’s white box ammunition stands for consistent quality, reliable functionality, and American production values. So long as you have at least one rifle chambered for 5.56x45 or 223 Rem, you have every reason you need to order this bread and butter 223 Rem ammo.

    Winchester loads this round with a 55 grain full metal jacket projectile. It’s as elemental as AR-15 bullets come thanks to its solid lead core, gilding metal jacket, and absence of steel or any other metals which would have attracted a magnet. The bullet’s 0.274 G1 BC enables it to retain half of its original velocity at 530 yards, so you can look forward to a flat trajectory no matter your target’s range. The bullet’s cannelure ensures it stays seated at the right depth so you can avoid a failure to feed.

    Winchester’s nonmagnetic ammunition is also non-corrosive and clean-burning. Its brass cases are furthermore brand new. These particular rounds’ new production cases have been fortified via heat treatment, but the annealing marks weren’t subsequently buffed out at the factory.

    Load up your magazines with a few boxes of this high quality XP193 5.56mm ammo from PMC. XP193 from PMC's X-TAC line follows the same specification as military-grade M193 ammo and comes at a low cost for all shooters to enjoy. Zero in peace knowing that your rifle will follow proven ballistic tables that have been in circulation for decades.

    These cartridges come 20 to a box and feature reloadable brass casings that have been annealed at the neck and shoulder for strength and longevity. The cases are fitted with non-corrosive Boxer primers which are pressed in with red primer sealant for moisture protection. The casings are also crimped around every 55 grain bullet's toothed cannelure in order to prevent bullet setback from repeated loading and unloading. 55 grain full metal jacket (FMJ) bullets are a commercial standard for the caliber and will function and fly great out of the widest range of ARs, SCARs, Mini-14s, and other 5.56x45mm chambered rifles with varying barrel lengths and twists.

    PMC ammunition is sourced from South Korea and carries a great reputation for consistent quality due to experience producing ammo for NATO militaries. Their ammunition is great for matches, classes, and zeroing and is well known for being quite inexpensive relative to its M193 specification.

    Hornady’s Frontier line of ammunition is all about versatility. They boast, rightly, that a Frontier round is the one to reach for whether you would spend your afternoon plinking, target shooting, and training for law enforcement. It’s also in no way inadequate (and in fact excellent for) hunting and self-defense as well. Combined with its reasonable price, this one-size-fits-all brand is great for shooters who appreciate the opportunity to familiarize themselves with one cartridge’s performance as intimately as they can.

    This 5.56x45mm cartridge features a 75 grain projectile. Its boat tail design greatly increases its ballistic coefficient to raise its accuracy, flatten its trajectory, and improve its performance in windy environments. Because the bullet is also a hollow point, it will expand to create a deep and wide wound channel in soft targets, so a well-placed shot could certainly take down a malicious interloper.

    Frontier ammunition further offers reloadable brass casings and military grade Boxer primers and propellant. Hornady’s meticulous manufacturing process sees to it that each and every Frontier round is loaded to consistent specifications, and their quality assurance protocol ensures that they’re all flawless before exiting their factory’s doors.

    Hot and accurate with minor quality issues...

    Tried this out in my 26", 8 twist, 223 Wylde bolt gun and was surprised to get .55-.65" groups. Even more amazed the velocity was 2916 fps with a 34 ES. This has to be at the hot end of the load data so be sure you have a rifle that can take it. Much cheaper, faster, and just as accurate as Magtech 77gr. Only negative was several rounds had some good dents in the shoulder area, so watch out for quality issues.

    Get a solid zero on your milspec AR using the ammo it was made to shoot with these M855 style 62 grain Green Tip rounds from PMC's X-TAC line; this line is known for following NATO specification to the letter. These 62 grain Light-Armor Penetrating (LAP) rounds work well with the most popular 1:9, 1:8, and 1:7 barrel twists of your favorite 5.56x45mm rifles. The bullets feature toothed cannelures that the manufacturer crimps to in order to prevent bullet setback. The cartridges are also constructed from reloadable, annealed brass casings and non-corrosive Boxer primers set in with sealant which keeps moisture from reaching the inside of the case.

    PMC sources this ammo from South Korea where it is produced on the same time-proven machines that make ammo for the Korean military as well as for NATO territories. Many U.S. shooters love PMC ammo for its reliability, high quality construction, and affordable cost.

    Ready for action! This ammo can contains 420 rounds of 5.56x45, loaded on stripper clips and accompanied by a handy steel spoon. Whether you want to pour the contents of this can into unsuspecting range targets or save them indefinitely, you can’t go wrong with Winchester’s military-grade 5.56x45.

    This isn’t M193 ammo with 55 grain nonmagnetic FMJ projectiles. It is M855 ammo, with 62 grain magnetic FMJ projectiles. Each green-tipped bullet sports a seven-grain steel cone beneath the tip of its jacket, which promotes surer penetration of barriers including 0.125” thick steel plating at close to medium range. The M855 bullet’s relatively greater heft gives it superior velocities a few hundred yards out – a 1:7 barrel twist is adequate for this ammo, but you’ll observe its best accuracy with a 1:8 or 1:9 twist.

    This Winchester 5.56x45 ammo is brand new production, not something that has been sitting around at an Army base for eons. As such it has responsive non-corrosive primers and newly minted brass cases. Don’t worry about the gray coloration around the cases’ mouths and necks – that’s only cosmetic, and the result of the annealing treatment which helps brass expand and contract more efficiently.

    Each round in this box of 20 fires a 55 grain soft point bullet at a muzzle velocity of 3,200 feet per second; this results in external ballistics comparable to those of M193 ball ammo. Once the projectile strikes the animal, however, the soft point rapidly expands into a "mushroom" with deadly effect.

    PMC cartridges are loaded in South Korea using non-corrosive primers and reloadable brass cases.

    No matter how you like to shoot, this 223 Rem cartridge by Federal is going to make you a happy shooter indeed! Its bullet is a TMJ -- no, not the painful jaw disorder, but a total metal jacket! Such a jacket prevents ignition from evaporating the bullet’s core, so if you’re taking your AR-15 indoors this round’s a good investment in your lungs’ health. The bullet is also heavy for its caliber, which means if you shoot long distance you’ll enjoy shots that better resist wind drift as well. Good for a rainy day, and good for a nice day too!

    Federal Eagle ammo is massively popular among enthusiasts who like to get as much value for their hard earned money as they’re able to. Federal knows brass inside and out, so they’ve precision formed these rounds’ casings to be uniform, sturdy, and perfectly reloadable. These rounds’ consistent primers are both sensitive and non-corrosive, which will make shooting satisfying without taking a big toll on your rifle’s integrity.

    When you buy Prvi Partizan’s ammunition, you’re investing in the Serbian company’s nearly 100 years of experience, superior quality control standards, and mission to produce the world’s most consistent cartridges. Its no coincidence why so many American firearm enthusiasts swear by PPU’s 5.56x45 ammo whenever target shooting is concerned!

    This cartridge is loaded with PPU’s own 55 grain FMJBT projectile. It’s a target shooter’s old standby, with a concentric gilding metal jacket for assured in-flight stability and a tapering base that hones its ballistic coefficient to 0.248. This bullet should only have to rise by about 1.5” to hit a 200-yard zero (assuming your sight height is 1.5” as well). It will remain supersonic beyond 700 yards if you care to do some longer distance shooting, and its bullet’s ability to fragment inside soft tissue lets it inflict accentuated damage at close range.

    PPU’s Rangemaster label stands for their characteristic commitment to great quality. These are non-magnetic rounds, not to mention non-corrosive and brass-cased. If you want reloadable ammunition, then this ammo will make you appreciate why the PPU headstamp appears on so many handloads.

    No failures after the first thousand rounds. Very clean when I compare it to alternates in same price range. Great grouping at 100 yards but cannot get less than 4 " groups at 200 yards with a Leupold rifleman scope and AR 15s in a bench vice, but I think this is more operator and scope related. I feel it is a great target round for the price and highly recommend it. JHB

These cartridges come packaged in a convenient reusable black Plano ammo ammo can with a sturdy latch and carrying handle.

    Each cartridge in this case of 200 fires a 40 grain polymer tipped Hornady V-MAX jacketed hollow point bullet at a muzzle velocity of 3,650 feet per second. This high velocity helps promote rapid fragmentation for efficient kills against small animals; the fast disintegration of the projectile also reduces the risk of overpenetration and ricochets.

    Based in Ozark, Missouri, Fiocchi of America is the US division of Fiocchi Munizioni SPA, which was founded in Italy in 1876. Although relatively new to the US market, Fiocchi ammo has gained increasing popularity in recent years due to its reasonable price and consistent quality. Fiocchi ammo uses non corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases.

    Twenty rounds. One magazine. This single box of 5.56x45 ammunition by Winchester is all you need to demonstrate your mastery of your AR-15 rifle – or save the day.

    Winchester didn’t make this ammo for the military, but they did make it to the military’s M193 specifications. That means it has the 5.56’s traditional 55 grain FMJ bullet, which has a solid lead core and hard copper alloy jacket. This type of bullet is most popular for target shooting, although it’s not at all unsuitable for self-defense (it’s just not as effective as an expanding bullet like a soft point or polymer tip). This smooth-feeding bullet also features a cannelure, which keeps it right where it’s meant to be seated in its case.

    That case is made of solid brass and has never before seen the light of day. You can see where its neck and shoulder were annealed, which is a heat-treatment process that makes brass more elastic. That’s why this ammo’s cases expand so reliably to seal the chamber during ignition, and also why they make great reloading components. This ammo is both nonmagnetic and non-corrosive for versatile and clean performance.

    This Frontier label 223 Rem ammunition by Hornady is great for all the long-distance shooters out there. It showcases the Nebraskan master’s HP Match, which is basically 55 grains of nothing but accuracy-enhancing features.

    The HP Match’s swaged lead core is highly uniform, and doesn’t possess air pockets that could impact its balance. Its AMP jacket is drawn with virtually zero runout or variations in its wall thickness. The HP Match is also extremely sleek, from its narrow meplat to its secant ogive geometry to its sloping boat tail.

    This round’s HP Match bursts out of a 24” barrel at a velocity of 3,240 fps. So well-balanced and streamlined a bullet exhibits a G1 BC of 0.254, and can be counted on to remain supersonic beyond 700 yards. Whether you’re shooting targets or varmints, so flat a trajectory is certain to come in very handy.

    The Lake City Army Ammunition Plant loads this AR-15 ammo. Widener’s customers who can’t get enough brass are sure to find a good use for this ammo’s new production cases, which are visibly annealed and long-lasting. Lake City’s military-grade primers, propellant and loading practices deliver reliable performance however you shoot!

    This 223 cartridge is loaded to standard M193 specifications: 55 grain FMJ bullet, 3,240 fps muzzle velocity. Federal’s FMJ additionally features a boat tail – a tapering base that mitigates in-flight drag to increase the amount of velocity the bullet can retain downrange. With its ballistic coefficient of 0.269, a bullet like this easily flies faster than 1,900 fps when it passes 400 yards!

    This is military-grade ammo, but it was specifically produced for the civilian market. You will notice that its brass cases are visibly annealed. The discoloration is purely cosmetic, and indicates that the brass was heat-treated so it can expand to seal the chamber more efficiently and return to its original dimensions following ignition. Federal’s Boxer primers and propellant are both clean-burning and intensely reliable. Stock up now – ammo like this goes fast!
