Federal XM193 5.56 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 – another big check mark for Federal ammunition in the high-quality department. Anyway, you probably want some information about the ammunition.
As noted, each box of Federal XM193 5.56 ammunition contains 20 cartridges. Each cartridge contains a 55gr full metal jacket bullet, which provides for higher muzzle velocities. In fact, the XM193 load features a velocity of approximately 3165 fps. Each cartridge uses a brass case and includes a water-resistant lacquer primer sealant for enhanced performance and reliability. All cartridges are visually inspected at the plant prior to packaging.

I use this stuff for practice because at 100 yards it has close to the same point of impact as my reloads and it is plenty accurate for its intended use. I like the annealed cases because I can reload them a few more times than the non-annealed cases.
This ammo is super. I use this to sight in my AR type rifles. Quality and great price.
This is the pinnacle of the 5.56. This is something that you can't have to much of. No reason for hp at that velocity. Penetration and fragmentation. Need I say more?
This is the best 5.56 ball out there. All 5.56s should work well with it, I know my Mini 14 does!
This is the classic ball ammo by which others are measured. Keep an eye out for this ammo to come back in stock. I know I will!
