When Federal offers a “military grade” 223 Rem cartridge, you can be certain that it really and truly is. Federal’s been in the business of making military grade ammo dating back to WWII when they operated the government’s Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant. That factory’s collecting dust now, but Federal still makes this particular cartridge at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Missouri.
This round features a 55 grain full metal jacket boat tail projectile. It’s a non-expanding yet cost-effective bullet design, with a tapered base that creates significantly less drag while the bullet’s in flight. This round gives its bullet a 3,240 fps muzzle velocity, and the aerodynamic bullet retains more than half that speed after having traveled 500 yards! You’ll get great accuracy that you can enjoy at the range – or make use of for self-defense if you need it.
This round’s high quality brass shell casing will make the trip through your semi-auto without issue, and it’s reloadable several times. (If you don’t reload your casings, you can still make someone who does very happy.) This round’s non-corrosive primer is sensitive enough for people who have to shoot for a living, and its propellant burns clean to keep your weapon in proper working order.
