Range report AE AR223

Cabelas had a sale on AE AR223 55gr FMJ for $ 6.99 per 20 loose boxed(AE223J). So I picked up 100 rounds- I was hoping it was the AE Tactical round but it wasn't! Never shot any of the AR223 so I figured I'd through it over the chrony and see how it would group. Group was shot at 50 yards as the wind was blowing so 100 yard group wouldn't be to hot! Especially with using just a redot! As a reloader not to impressed with the FC brass as usual it's SHORT! After sizing came in at 1.740" ish! Doesn't even make Min trim length! But if you want good plinking ammo this stuff is good! No FTE/FTF's

Firearm - PSA Strikefire Carbine 1:7",
16 " barrel Vortex redot.

Ammo: AE AR223, 55gr FMJ Lot# SMQ12F264-200

Chrony Results: AVG Vel : 2882 fps, SD 18.3 ES 42
1. 2884 fps
2. 2880 fps
3. 2914 fps
4. 2841 fps
5. 2868 fps
6. 2924 fps
7. 2814 fps
8. 2876 fps
9. 2873 fps
10. 2896 fps

IME, American Eagle shoots.

I'm not sure how old this stuff is, but I shot that group at 200 yards, prone on the mag with a 2MOA Aimpoint from a BCM EAG upper.

I have a couple of boxes of the Tactical 223 left both my AR's and Savage loves it! Like I said this was my first try of the AR223. I don't know if it's supposed to replace the Tactical - it is different as the Tactical gave me 3050ish fps out of my AR's ! The 5.56mm Tactical sucks in my veiw.

Those 55gr velocities are what I would expect out of a 16-inch barrel.
