For plinking and target fun, get a box (or two) of Federal American Eagle 5.56x45mm NATO ammo. It achieves performance that closely matches comparable Federal Premium® loads for the ultimate real-world practice. M193 Ammo is the term for standard lead-core ball ammo. XM193 is Federal’s civilian line of M193 ball ammo.
NOTE: While the 5.56x45mm NATO round will fit in a .223 Remington chamber, 5.56 NATO is a military round that runs at higher pressures, and is not recommended for use in .223 Remington chambers.
