The Federal Cartridge Company, headquartered in Anoka, Minnesota, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alliant Techsystems. The company was founded in 1916 and has since become one of the finest names in the ammunition industry. Today, the company manufactures a complete line of rimfire ammunition, centerfire ammunition and shotshells – they even have a production contract with the United States Military. Federal ammunition has been used during multiple Olympic Games in which the U.S. team brought home gold, silver and bronze medals. Pretty high-quality stuff if you ask me.
Federal XM223BLAC .223 ammunition is a product from the American Eagle line of ammunition. American Eagle ammunition is marketed as precision practice ammunition, and though it is inexpensive, it offers an uncanny accuracy on par with the more expensive brands. Like all Federal ammunition, Federal XM223BLAC .223 ammunition is manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) in Independence, Missouri, which is an interesting aspect of the ammunition in itself. LCAAP is a government-owned, contractor-operated munitions facility that was originally established in 1941 for the manufacture and testing of small arms ammunition for the United States Army. Since 2001, it has been operated by Alliant Techsystems and is the largest manufacturer of small arms ammunition for the U.S. Army. But enough about the boring stuff – on to the ammunition you so desperately want to get your hands on.
That said each package of Federal XM223BLAC .223 ammunition contains an astonishing 1000 non-corrosive, brass-cased cartridges. Each cartridge contains a 55gr full metal jacket bullet, which provides for increased muzzle velocities. These cartridges have been observed to travel at speeds in excess of 3,200 fps. All Federal ammunition is manufactured using fully-reloadable, newly-manufactured brass cases as well as non-corrosive Boxer primers.
Perhaps best of all, however, is that this ammunition comes packed in a large military-style ammo can. Each brand new ammo can contains 10 individual packages, each of which contains 100 cartridges of Federal .223 Remington ammunition. Additionally, each ammo can measures approximately 11 inches long, 5.5 inches wide and 7 inches high while providing a leak-proof seal and a snap-locking latch for secure storage – no need to worry about moisture here.
Try as you might, but it is highly unlikely that you will find a better deal on Federal XM223BLAC .223 ammunition. I mean really, $393.23 for 1000 rounds? You are practically stealing from us. Lucky for you, we are not going to turn you in. Consider this ammunition for:
- Target shooting
- Recreational shooting
- Much more…
