    Can you take a pic of the headstamp? They look like the american eagle (federal) 50 grain varmint 223

    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.

    Even if it is M995, that stuff is illegal to sell or manufacture but not to own or shoot.

    That's what I was thinking. But the OP said the tip is not palstic and I am 99% sure the federal varmint grey tip is a plastic tip bullet.
