Federal's American Eagle line of ammunition is designed specifically for target shooting, training and practice. It's loaded to the same specifications as Federal's Premium loads, but at a more practical price for plinking. Please note that this Ammo does NOT have a steel core.
Look for the discolored case.
Annealed per military requirement. This ammo has been annealed, so you know it meets true military specs. Unlike your standard civilian round, the military requires visual proof of the annealing on the case, causing the case to appear discolored. This is done intentionally to meet military requirements for overall durability and strength in the completed round. Ammo comes loaded in 10-rd. stripper clips, in a .30 cal. ammo can.
<b>NOTE:</b> While the 5.56x45mm NATO will fit in a 223 Remington chamber, the 5.56 is a military round that runs at higher pressures than it's 223 counterpart and is not recommended to be fired in 223 Remington chambers.
