American Eagle .223 Priced Cheap Enough for Plinking

American Eagle Tactical .223 Remington ammo is manufactured by ATK/Federal Ammunition, the same company that makes all the ammo for the US military.  Each 20 round black box is glued shut all around to avoid spilling rounds during storage.  Featuring an M193 specification 55 grain full metal jacket boat tail bullet screaming out the muzzle at 3250 feet per second, this round’s accuracy is proven in barrels of any standard twist rate from 1:7 to 1:12.  Loaded to SAAMI specifications of not more than 55,000 psi chamber pressure, this ammo is safe to shoot in rifles marked either “.223 Rem” or “5.56 NATO” and is a natural choice for AR15s and Ruger Mini-14s.  At this price, why not leave the .22 conversions behind on your next range trip, and get some practice in with the real stuff? http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/ItemDetail.aspx?sku=AMM-2031&utm_source=Blog&utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=20110816-AMM-2031..223ammo
