  • Why does federal xm193bkx 5.56 look different from hornady

    I noticed the projectile on federal is bigger. Also the primer is different. Is this normal ?

    Hornady’s is just 55gr ammo in a 5.56 NATO marked case. It’s not any of the military designated cartridges of 5.56 NATO.

    Federal’s is, but they distinguish M193 rounds destined for civilian sales as XM193.

    The hornady is just a little cold, quit judging it.

    Well, the hornady is a hollow points bullet, which means it’s not a milspec loading if it’s not a 77 grain bullet, and hornady doesn’t make a 77 grain bullet. The hornady round isn’t m193, it’s just 556

    Hornady likes to seat their bullets super low for some reason. I reload a lot with their bullets and even the recommendations in their books are fairly low seated. It works totally fine though. There must be some benefit to doing it because my Hornady reloads are amazing accuracy wise.
