Made in USA! 500 rounds newly manufactured Federal XM193 55 grain FMJ-BT cartridges in caliber 5.56 NATO. Packaged 20 Rounds per box, 25 boxes per case. Made in USA by Lake City Ammunition Plant. The cases I have left in stock were shipped to me individually, so the cases will not appear pristine as if they were just off a pallet. The cases are still factory sealed and the boxes will in new condition.
This is military style ammunition for your military style AR-15. This ammunition is for use only for chambers marked 5.56 NATO, as are most AR-15 carbines and rifles. Do not use it in sporting rifle chambers marked .223.
"XM193 product is first run, first quality product manufactured by the Lake City Ammunition plant in Independence, Missouri for Federal Cartridge.

Jason Nash, Group Lead, Communications - ATK Ammunition and Related Products Group: "We've had several questions regarding the XM designation and following is our official statement regarding what the product is. XM193 ammunition is 5.56mm contract overrun material. It may not meet all of the mil-spec requirements, however, it does meet all requirements of commercial ammunition for pressure, form, fit and function. Like any other mass-produced product, there are often imperfections in either appearance or non-functional mechanics. As we all know, the military is very stringent in their requirements and for good reason. This being the case, it doesn't take much to fall outside of those parameters."
