- Q & A
This round’s 62 grain projectile is jacketed in gilding metal, so it feeds and offers ballistic performance comparable to any other FMJ. The bullet’s core, on the other hand, is not made of solid lead. It also contains a seven-grain steel tip – aka a “penetrator” – which does indeed promote clean penetration through barriers as tough as 1/8” thick steel plating.
You’re not wasting M855 ammo when you use it for regular target shooting, but its bullet’s barrier-breaking performance and habit of snapping in two inside of soft tissue does make it practical for home defense. The bullet is magnetic, and its added heft means a 1:9 or 1:8 twist barrel will give it the best in-flight stability.
Igman’s brass cases and non-corrosive Boxer primers promote cleaner performance in any kind of rifle, and they also make this AR-15 ammo good for handloaders.
