This Federal Lake City Ammunition has been loaded and passed true NATO specifications. This is the same ammunition that is currently being used by the US Military and met their strict quality assurance standards and specifications. This ammunition is loaded with green painted steel penetrator tip, lead core bullets and is non-corrosive in boxer-primed, reloadable brass cases. The Lake City arsenal is now packing their premium brand .223/5.56 NATO rounds in mini ammo cans. The cans are designed to look just like the regular sized cans used by our military except measures 6x3.25x3.25" with a snap lock lid.
Please Note: While the 5.56x45mm NATO will fit in a .223 Remington chamber, the 5.56 is a military round that runs at higher pressures than its .223 counterpart and is not recommended to be fired in a .223 Remington chambers.
