Military Surplus - Full Metal Jacket - 55 Grain 223 Remington Ammo - 500 Rounds


Military calibers means that commercially speaking there is generally a lot of it available and from a logistics point of view this is of premier importance. Simply ask Japan or Italy; countries that were in the middle of a caliber change in the middle of a war. The .223 Remington is a cartridge that has been in active service for almost fifty years and as such is well documented with established standards of performance and there are a great many manufacturers that meet those requirements. The 55 grain full metal jacket bullet by MFS leaves the muzzle at 3130 ft per sec with 1196 ft lbs of energy. This is a round that is suitable for stockpiling (for which 500 rounds is considered at least a good minimal start) and use in training or target shooting.

The RUAG Ammotech munitions provider MFS was originally established in 1952, Sirok, Hungary and provided for both the military and civilian markets. Their steel cases are boxer primed and zinc plated to help with feeding in semi-automatic firearms and meet mil spec for the country. US shooters find the economy, especially in bulk pricing, to be particularly attractive for making noise on range day.
