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.
Like all Federal ammunition, Federal XM193BK 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. Anyway, I should probably move on to the specifics of this ammunition before something goes wrong and it is too late.
As noted, each package of Federal XM193BK 5.56 ammunition contains an outrageous 1000 cartridges. Each cartridge contains a 55gr full metal jacket bullet, which provides for increased muzzle velocities. This particular load boasts muzzle velocities that have been observed to travel in excess of 3,100 fps. Additionally, each cartridge uses a brass case and includes a water-resistant lacquer primer sealant as well as an M41 primer with an operating range of minus 40 to 125 degrees Fahrenheit, all of which provide for enhanced performance and reliability. All cartridges are visually inspected at the plant prior to packaging.
If you have ever fired Federal ammunition before, then I do not need to convince you of its quality. And if you have ever purchased Federal ammunition from Keepshooting.com before, then you probably know how quickly it sells. As such, waiting around is probably not a good idea if you have any desire to purchase Federal XM193BK 5.56 ammunition. Consider this ammunition for:
- Target shooting
- Sport shooting
- Small-game hunting
- Law enforcement
- Much more…
