AR-15 shooters looking for an affordable target round often must choose between cost and reliability. Not anymore. Now you can enjoy the perfect combination of reliability & affordability, without compromising accuracy or penetration. Check out Federal’s 5.56x45mm 62 grain FMJ M855 ammo.
This round uses the revolutionary spitzer boat-tail bullet with steel core penetrator, the same design adopted by NATO in 1980. The result is improved penetration, higher velocity retention, and greater accuracy even at longer ranges.
Long range target shooting depends on accuracy and reliability. The difference between 1st and 2nd place is often decided by fractions of an inch as well as ammunition that will function every time the trigger is pulled.
Federal utilizes a manufacturing process that relies on boxer-primers with lacquer sealing & first run brass cases. Each casing is headstamped with manufacturer’s mark and production date. Each round utilizes the steel core penetrator full metal jacket bullet, with green painted NATO tip, for the same long-distance penetration the U.S. military counts on.
Ammunition that shoots this well will allow you to build confidence at the same time you improve your skills. The 500 rounds will look like a lot at the beginning of the day, but that number will look smaller and smaller as the brass quickly piles at your feet. Although, if you reload, you will be able to enjoy that moment again thanks to each being well-suited for reloading.
Every round is first run, new construction using spitzer boat-tail bullet, boxer-primers, and quality brass cartridges.
