Federal AE223J.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 AE223J.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.

That said each package of Federal AE223J .223 ammunition contains 20 non-corrosive, brass-cased cartridges. Each cartridge contains a 55 gr 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. Additionally, all cartridges are visually inspected prior to leaving the manufacturing plant.
