500 Rounds of 62gr FMJBT .223 Ammo by Federal For Sale
What’s the only way to increase the enjoyment of target shooting? That’s fine, go a little further. And you’ll be able to take your sweet time at the range if you have a 500-round block of Federal Premium’s enduringly popular American Eagle 223 Rem ammo.
A 62 grain full metal jacket boat tail bullet is used in this cartridge. When you see the number 62, you could automatically wonder if the bullet is magnetic if you’re familiar with 5.56 M855 ammunition. This is not the case because the premium FMJBT from Federal does not contain steel. It is simply a lead core and solid point copper alloy jacket with a boat tail for ballistic effectiveness.
This ammo has a slightly heavier bullet, which results in somewhat improved long-range accuracy. This 62gr load has a G1 BC of 0.307 as opposed to a usual 55gr load’s 0.243. If you don’t understand what those numbers represent, just know that a greater BC indicates that the bullet is more effective at overcoming air resistance. As a result, the trajectory maintains its flatness and is less susceptible to wind deflection.
Ammo from the American Eagle series is ideal for high-volume shooting, but it doesn’t scrimp on the dependable noncorrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases that many shooters need.
