A case, 5.56mm is a crafting item in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics

This item is used as a component to create 5.56 rounds at reloading benches along with lead, one small rifle primer and rifle powder.

Locations

  • Enemies that use a varmint rifle or a service rifle, such as NCR troopers, can have up to nine casings on them when they die.
  • A casing can be acquired after firing a weapon chambered in the 5.56mm round about 20% of the time.
  • There are 25 casings for 5.56mm ammunition in each 5.56mm case box.
  • Occasionally, some traveling merchants will "sell" 5.56mm casings but they will always be for free. Likewise, selling casings to a merchant will not yield any caps.
