Product Details

These are mainstream civilian market cartridges for the .223 Remington, that are made in the Lake City plant, the famous military munitions production facility. These are not MIL-SPEC rounds, but they are made to the same production specifications as the mil-spec 5.56x45mm rounds produced in the facility and loaded to SAAMI specifications for the .223 Remington. They exhibit the same attention to detail, consistent measurements and tolerances that made the production facility famous with the military grade ammunition that it produces. This is a .223 Remington load with a 55 grain full metal jacket projectile that is well suited for barrel twist rates of 1 in 8 and 1 in 9 inches but can be used across the board for the entire spectrum of barrel twists. The copper clad projectile is lead cored and offers 3240 feet per second velocity out of the bore, and 1282 ft. lbs. of energy at the muzzle. This is consistent with the other loads in the category in a 55 grain projectile variant. The brass cartridge and Boxer primer make this an easily reloadable case, and the price point makes it a definite value for those that need quality donor casings.

The American Eagle line has been a longstanding part of the Federal portfolio of products. It is their value line that utilizes substantially similar components to load out ammunition of sufficient quality and performance as their other higher tier lines. The value for the AE line is exceptional. The reputation the ammo has is excellent and the volume of sell-through for Federal is massive each year with the American Eagle offering. In this case, this is among their best sellers with the popularity of the AR platform. Federal is part of the Vista Outdoor umbrella of companies, that have some of the largest producers of ammunition in the world working together to strengthen the bottom line and achieve common goals. The CCI, Speer, AE, Federal, and many other brand names are part of this parent organization. Together they produce more ammunition than any other producer in the world in the civilian market. Federal is the anchor company for the brand in the Ammunition division. American Eagle is a major part of that brand value. The potential for this ammunition to be used for hunting, target shooting, and personal defense means it is truly a versatile round, but the price point makes the shooter realize how valuable it is when they are able to shoot it in bulk without cost concerns. Such is the positioning of the AE line in the overall market for ammunition. A value brand with exceptional performance, unmatched reliability, and consistency for a mainstream offering.
