These are SS109 green-tipped rounds, which, although similar to the M855, are not necessarily mil-spec rounds. The SS109 is the European version of the M855 and is capable of serious stopping power. These are 5.56x45mm with the SS109 steel-penetrating bullet, which is the same bullet used in M855, and although many of them are loaded to NATO specs, not all of them are. In fact, the SS109 projectile is Belgian-made and features a closed-nose, copper-jacketed lead core containing that famed steel penetrator. The penetrator is capable of piercing thin, medium-strength steel at moderate ranges, but is absolutely not an armor-piercing round. What the SS109 is, is a powerful 5.56 round that’s seriously fun to shoot.
These SS109 rounds are made by Sellier and Bellot, a company that was founded in 1825 and is based in Vlasim, Czech Republic. They got their start making percussion caps for the infantry by request of the Emperor of Austria and have continued supplying ammunition for various branches of the military ever since. In fact, since day one Sellier and Bellot has been dedicating to manufacturing ammunition that not only meets but surpasses the expectations and needs of shooters, and this green-tipped ammo is a fantastic example. All ammunition meets SAAMI or CIP standards.
There are 20 green-tipped penetrator rounds in this single box. These are lightweight at 62 grain, which is also the standard weight for SS109 rounds, so they fly towards your target with impressive speed. This is Full Metal Jacket ammunition and does not expand on impact, and as SS109 rounds they’re specifically designed to over-penetrate, so make sure you have a reliable backstop. Remember, all rifle rounds are capable of traveling miles, but these penetrator rounds are even more prone. This ammunition is great for tactical training and responsible target practice. Place your order for these popular SS109 rounds right away before someone else beats you to it, and feed your rifle!
