- Q & A
This is M855 5.56 ammo. On the outside its 62 grain bullet is functionally identical to any other FMJ, so you can count on smooth feeding and decreased barrel fouling per usual. But inside the bullet’s tip lies a steel “penetrator” core.
The penetrator does exactly what you would expect it to, which is to say it promotes penetration. This round’s bullet is much better equipped to pierce 1/8” thick sheet metal at close range, and it can penetrate to a depth of up to 20” in soft tissue. The M855 bullet also has a good chance of splitting in half inside of soft tissue, making its terminal performance even more effective for self-defense. But this is also fine plinking and target shooting ammo – so long as you’re not at a range which bans magnetic projectiles!
Each round in this box of 150 has a reloadable brass case alongside a non-corrosive Boxer primer. Every AR aficionado should try M855 ammo at least once!
