American Eagle Fresh Fire Pack 5.56 NATO

posted on September 5, 2014

We've mentioned before how ingenious we find Federal's "Fresh Fire" packaging. Presenting one's ammunition offerings in packaging that allows for more rugged storage and transport is simply brilliant, especially as more consumers look for ammo that can be safely stored for longer periods of time.

American Eagle has extended the "Fresh Fire Pack" concept to include 5.56 NATO, and offers both the 62-grain FMJ shown as well as a 55-grain variant. The packaging is smart, clean, nitrogen-sealed to resist corrosion and moisture and comes with a resealable plastic lid. It's great for fitting in a range bag, stacking in an ammo can or simply leaving in the ammo locker for a rainy day.

The ammunition itself is reliable, accurate and affordable for the bulk of your shooting needs. It's even brass-cased for the handloaders out there who like once-fired brass. Best of all, it comes in a 30-round package, perfectly matched for your standard capacity magazine.

MSRP: $20.95
