Stryker 5.56x45 NATO M856 Tracer 64 gr FMJ – 400 Rounds
NOTE: Not available for shipping to California
Stryker 5.56 M856 tracer ammunition consists of Lake City brass, Boxer primers, and 64-grain FMJ projectiles. This line of ammunition is 100% American-made and designed for range training.
All of our 5.56 ammunition is tested for function using an AR-15-style rifle with a 20" barrel and rifle-length gas system. Like the military, we expect our loaded rounds to have consistent firing and grouping!
Some, if not all, projectiles will lack the painted tip (orange). This is because we receive our projectiles directly from the military as is, whether they are painted or not. This will NOT affect the accuracy or function of the rounds.
Developed for the military, the M856 tracer typically ignites at 75 yards and stays lit for approximately 800 yards. Due to the high temperature produced by the tracer material, the risk of fire is increased. Be aware of your target and beyond to maintain a safe shooting environment.
Military Requirements: Because the components come from Lake City Ammunition Plant, the cases must be annealed to meet military specs. This does not mean the cases have been previously used. Unlike civilian rounds, the military requires visual proof of the annealing process. Annealing causes discoloration to the cases with the benefit of added durability.
While 5.56x45mm NATO rounds will fit in .223 Remington chambers, we do not recommend this round to be fired in the .223 Remington chamber as military rounds run at higher pressures than civilian .223 rounds.
