XM193i Federal Independence Bullets Ammunition Problems
Federal 5.56 NATO 55 Grain Bullets. Lots of users seem to have problems with them, as I do myself.
I would always get a jam and BCG ( bullet carrier group ) would get stuck all the time. It would freeze
up and end my day at the range until I got home to free it up. I would have to use lots of Lucas Degreaser,
which is great for cleaning all the fouling.
XM193i is the model number of the bullet.

The longer bullets are the Federal XM193i's.
And the little metal piece of probably a blown primer or whatever that jammed my
Bravo Company rifle up which rarely happens. Just with these rounds.
When I buy my ammunition I want it to be made in the US, not other countries
where their standards are very low and could care less about specifications
or what happens to people when one of their rounds blow up in a chamber.
This Federal Idependence XM193i is made in Israel, hence that little "i" after
the model number of the round. Made by IMI.
This is the stamp of this particular bullet in question. XM193i
The larger size bullets in the line up are the XM193i.
Little piece of something that fell out of my rifle BCG passage when finally
freeing up the control group.
Oh, how happy I was to be back in action.
