- Q & A
The M855 bullet deserves its nickname – the penetrator. The rear half of the penetrator’s core is made of standard lead, but the front half is pure steel. So hard a bullet can turn a sheet of steel into Swiss cheese, and its effect on other barriers like plywood and drywall is the same.
In addition to being magnetic, this ammo comes with one more caveat: No shooting steel targets! The penetrator bullet poses a heightened risk of ricochet, and it will likely damage your target.
This round’s 62 grain FMJ sits in a factory fresh brass case. Lots of folks get a look at the case’s mottled shoulder and ask if it’s reloaded or tarnished. The discoloration is actually cosmetic, and it’s only there because these cases have been heat-treated for extra ruggedness!
