- Q & A
This M855 round’s 62 grain bullet has a little more mass than a regular M193 round. As such it is better stabilized by a faster twist barrel (1:9 or 1:8), but in return it retains greater momentum downrange.
The bullet has a conventional gilding metal jacket – concentric enough to promote target-grade accuracy, and hard enough to feed reliably in any semi-auto. The bullet’s green painted tip shows that its core contains a steel penetrator tip. Like its name implies, a penetrator bullet more reliably pierces barriers such as sheet metal at ranges up to around 330 yards. The core’s penchant for splitting apart inside of soft tissue also means it may deliver two separate wound channels, making it appropriate for self-defense applications.
Winchester loads this new production ammo with reloadable brass cases and clean-sparking primers and propellant. You can see that these new cases have been annealed, thus ensuring their suppleness over the course of multiple successive handloads.
