Employing the highest quality annealed brass casings, extremely reliable primers and incredibly technical powder flash inhibitors, the Federal American 5.56 NATO round is some of the most reliable ammunition on the market. Loaded to MIL-SPEC, this 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 steel penetrator in the SS109 does indeed pierce deeper than traditional lead core projectiles. This is all covered by a thick metal jacket with sealed primers and case mouths for long-term storage and moisture protection.
Founded in 1922 in Minnesota, Federal Premium Ammunition specializes in embracing technology to perfect the science of ammunition production, serving the needs of shooting enthusiasts of every type. Federal American 5.56 NATO ammunition is ideal for use in M16A2 and M4 rifles. Please note, military-grade 5.56 NATO rounds create a higher pressure than their .223 counterpart and are not designed to be fired in a .223 Remington chamber.
