Likely Federal ammo loaded with the Nosler ballistic tip. Web site shows green tips, but may not be entirely accurate.

Someone mentioned that it may be M995 cause it looks like older ammo but heard that M995 is illegal!!!

If it says .233, it's civilian, not military. (????)

The "FC" is Federal Cartridge.

Wally world carried them for a while right before this chaos set in. They were a replacement for the american eagle 55gr fmj 20 round boxes that they used to carry for 6.99. They came in almost the same box, but were in sleeves and cost about 12 bucks. 50 gr varmint.
