Note: Independence (owned and operated by ATK) contracted with IMI (Israel Military Industries) to produce additional 5.56x45mm to help meet current market demand. IMI is Israel's government run military production facility and is the producer of ammunition for the Israeli military.. The ammo is brand new, brass cased, boxer primed, non-corrosive and re-loadable. It is made to military specifications which require the cases to be annealed. Unlike civilian production ammo, the military requires to see evidence of annealing on the round itself. This is why the cases will appear to be discolored. This is done on purpose in order to meet the military requirement for overall strength and durability of the finished round.
20 Rounds per box. To buy a full case, order 25 boxes. Price is per box
