5.56mm NATO

Federal XM193 NATO Ammunition - 5.56mm 55gr FMJ - 1000/ct is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great from past experiences...but.. I have fired several thousand rounds of this ammo over the last few years and have found it to be accurate and reliable ammo with no malfunctions due to the ammo. I have recently purchased 2k rounds ( 2 different lot #'s) with all the ammo being shipped in 20 round boxes with the plastic inserts and have actually handled all 2k as I have been placing them on stripper clips. I am finding the casings to all have Lake City markings but quite a few have shown dents, dings, and minor defects. I don't believe any of the defects will affect performance but just found it odd for new casings that are not loose bulk packed to look like this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 5.56mm Good price and arrived sooner than estimated. I've gone through 200+rounds without any failures. Only problem was that the box was not secured very well. As you can tell in the photo one end of the box had broken open. The plastic bag inside was ripped and there were 9 loose rounds inside. How many were lost in shipment...1,10,20? Would Fedex be happy with live ammo floating around in their trucks? I was not about to count out each round just to prove a point. I'm just saying a little extra tape would go a long way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value Ammo is military grade so one shouldn't expect perfection. It comes in bulk quantity and that is why one purchases it to get the bulk price. I haven't had a single issue using this ammo in the years that I have been shooting it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff Bought this in bulk at the best price around for my new AR. Mine came packaged in boxes of 20 which I find convenient for taking to the range. I throw 10 boxes or so in my range bag and they stack nicely. Easy to put back on the shelf if I don't use them all that day. Appearance is good. No issues with feeding or performance as of yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap and fast like the best prom date Purchased a grand of XM193... Since the price was cheaper than any other online I figured the shipping would be slower than usual. I was incorrect this company simply gives freakishly fast service at a very low price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If You're Looking for... If you are looking for a company with quality products at a very competitive price look no further. Great ammo, fair price delivered in short order. Easy to recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Happy about the product and price, but not sold exactly as advertised. The rounds came in 50 20-count American Eagle boxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fast service The price was way too good to pass up. Shipping was as fast as possible. I haven't had the chance to shoot them yet but they should work great for training.

i have just bought a Ruger AR15 model 8500. Not sure what ammo i should use. Is there any advantage to using 556 over 223 ? If I can get 223 cheaper that would be helpful due to my budget.. However I would buy 556 if it benefits my weapon.

Asked by: Donald E
If your barrel has .223 Rem on it then it can only shoot .223, if it states 5.56 NATO then it can shoot both .223 Rem and 5.56 NATO. Most newer ar-15's have 5.56 barrels but some older ones are .223.

Just got a Savage MSR 15 Recon. If I'm not mistaken, this ammo should be fine, no?? Thanks!

Asked by: Deal
This would be fine in any firearm chambered for 5.56.

is this the 193 ball ammo used in the 1 to 12 twist barrel ?

Asked by: jnmintz
Yes this is the original 55 grain round used in the old 1:12 twist barrel. It's performance on "flesh" targets is supposed to be superior to the 62 grain round now used. That is supposed to go through bakelight type AK-74 mags in the chest bandolier and fly straighter up to 300+ meters. Is it EXACTLY like the old round? Probably not but it's close enough.
