5.56x45mm NATO 55 GRAIN M193 FMJ BT (INDEPENDENCE) (500 ROUNDS)

Out of Stock
Manufactured in Israel by IMI, the country's state-owned ammo manufacturer, these 5.56 NATO rounds deliver excellent performance in AR-15 rifles at a favorable cost. Perfect for accurate target shooting, they produce ballistics comparable to M193 ball ammo and use a 55 grain full metal jacket, non-corrosive Boxer primers, and reloadable brass cases. This case holds 500 rounds, with 25 boxes of 20 rounds each.

This 5.56 NATO ammo is a bit hotter than .223 Remington, so make sure your rifle can fire it. Compatibility issues arise more often in .223 Remington hunting rifles; a well-made AR-15 will accomodate all types of 5.56/.223 ammo without problems.

    Haven't had a chance to go shoot this ammo, but looks like it's a well made round. Will update when I get a chance to go to the range with it. I rate 4 stars since I cannot vouch for it as a tested round yet.

    This is the second time I've ordered ammo from Ammoman. Both time I've been left with my jaw hanging because they not only respond nearly instantly to the orders, but they have actually gotten the product ready and shipped it before the day ended...and my last order was done in the very late afternoon/early evening. When I checked my email at around 10:00 pm before I shut down for the night, Ammoman had already replied and sent me the Fedex tracking number... I ordered this on Monday 5-23-16 and it arrived today, Wednesday 5-25-16... No special handling requested, none of that. Just their normal shipping. I wish every business acted like these people did! It would be a much better world!

    Ammo worked great, until my bolt / firing pin started pulling the primers out ... Mechanical issue not related to ammo (started malfunctioning after 500 rds. ran through it in several hours, during live-fire CQC training)

  • Very Good Range Round

    How quickly did your order arrive?
    Read some reviews about this ammo being "dirty". I inspected all 500 rds that I purchased and did not find any dirt issues. Used my normal cleaning methods after firing several rds and did not have any issues. The annealing is a little darker than American Eagle or Lake City. This may be what they're calling "dirty". Ammo grouped well with no cycling problems.

    Very fast shipping, excellent packing, and a great price. Follow up on customer satisfaction from you guys at Ammoman was a nice surprise! I'll definitely be a return customer.

    I thought I might see quality issues with these rounds. Not so. Bought a case of 500, and ran 100 rds through a new S&W Sport with no problems. Light muzzle flash. Pleasantly surprised. Imported by Federal according to the box.

  • Excellent and hot Round with reasonable accuracy

    How likely are you to recommend this product to a friend?
    How quickly did your order arrive?
    Nice outer fold open box that stacks well with 25 20 round boxes. Reminds me of LC but odd head stamp FC at top the on the nine and three O'clock a 1 and a 2 I assume this means 12th month? then at the six O'clock 15 for the year made. Primer and Projo sealed and crimped. More annealing marks than LC.

    Fired out of 18" 1/8 twist Nat match bbl with Rifle length gas, was able to get 4 out of 5 hits on 12 inch round plate from prone at 475 yards once I got on target with good dope. would have gone for 600 but snow prevented all but kneeling at those ranges and I can't come close to good hits at that range from keeling, about 250 is max for me. I an not an awesome shooter but because i shoot several times per week I maintain better then average in skill.

    I think this is a really good showing for 55 an easily equal to LC 193, w/ good authority on ejection which tells me it's pressure is right there. 18" W/ rifle length gas is naturally a low impulse cycle system so if it snaps them out with same distance as LC brass It tells me that are nice and hot. Very impressive.

    Got the ammo in sooner than I thought. The ammo I have shot exstencesively in the past. I had just picked up a new M16 rushed to the range to at least get the rifle sighted in good anough to make it usable before I left on vacation. The Independence 5.56 NATO rounds held a consistent group alowing me to set my rifle sights quickly and get on the road. Thank you for a great round. Will recamend this round an supplier to friends.
