Federal American 5.56 NATO ammunition is some of the most reliable ammunition money can buy and is loaded to military specification. This particular load uses the SS109 bullet, which is a 62-grain green tip M855 full metal jacket projectile with a lead and steel core for retaining velocity and accuracy at longer ranges. Though not classified as armor piercing, the mild steel penetrator in the SS109 does indeed pierce more things better than traditional lead core projectiles.
The 5.56x45mm cartridge uses the highest quality annealed brass casings, the most reliable primers, and the most technical powders with flash inhibitors. The SS109 bullet features a boat tail, cannelure, a mild steel penetrator, and a lead core all covered by a thick gilding metal jacket. The finished XM855 rounds have sealed primers and case mouths for long term storage and moisture protection.
Federal American 5.56 NATO ammunition is ideal for use in M16A2 and M4 rifles. Please note military grade 5.56mm NATO rounds create a higher pressure than their .223 counterpart and are not designed to be fired in a .223 Remington chamber.
