Loaded to NATO’s M855 specifications, this “green tip” ammunition uses 62-grain steel-cored full metal jacket bullets for high penetration. The heavier bullets result in a muzzle velocity of about 3,100 fps, slightly lower than M193 ball. This case holds 1,000 cartridges in 20-round boxes.

All of this ammunition uses Boxer-primers with reloadable brass cases. It is 5.56x45 NATO ammo, so make sure that your firearm can handle the hotter load before using it.

Due to its steel core, this ammunition should not be used on reactive steel targets for safety reasons.

PMC X-TAC ammunition is military-grade product manufactured by Poongsan Corporation and made available to American shooters thanks to excess capacity. Poongsan has supplied the South Korean armed forces with munitions for decades and employs strong quality control capabilities to help its ammo meet exacting military specifications. As a result, X-TAC ammunition enjoys a reputation for consistency and strong performance.

A: Hello Jeremy, The PMC 62 grain M855 round does contain a steel penetrator in the core of the bullet and will not pass any magnet tests.

A: Hello Nick, Yes, these 62gr. FMJ M855 rounds by PMC in 5.56 are manufactured to the same specs as the military XM855 penetrators. They have the same projectile design as the Lake City rounds.

A: Hello Allen, These 62gr. FMJ rounds by PMC in 5.56 have an advertised muzzle velocity of 3100fps and a muzzle energy of 1323 ft.lbs. They should function great in any rifle chambered in 5.56.

Posted On: 10/27/13 By: Butch

A: You are correct. The XM855 by PMC is cased in new brass and has a 62-grain steel core.

A: At first glance, both .223 Rem and 5.56 NATO appear to be the same size. This is actually true in terms of the bullet and brass used, with the 5.56 being slightly longer, un-noticeable unless you measure it precisely. The main difference, and the reason behind these two not being interchangeable, is the pressure (or powder charge) between the two different rounds. The 5.56 NATO round calls for a higher maximum pressure, while the .223 Rem calls for a lower maximum pressure. If you are shooting a .223 Rifle, the chamber may not be able to handle the pressure of the 5.56 round. This means that the common .223 Rem round will be able to safely fire in a 5.56 NATO chamber without any issues. Even with a lower pressure, the rifle will still function correctly. However 5.56 NATO ammo should not be used in a rifle designated for .223 Rem ammo only. Most modern AR-15 style rifles are chambered for the higher pressure 5.56 NATO round, however this cannot be said for 100% of similar rifles on the market, so its always a good idea to double check the chamber of your rifle. This can be determined via a marking on the outside of the barrel or elsewhere on the rifle.

A: Yes! The spent brass casings leftover from shooting this PMC 5.56x45mm NATO ammo may be recovered for the reloading process. All rounds are boxer primed and do not contain any corrosive loading components from the factory.

A: The images for this PMC 5.56x45 ammo shows the correct Full Metal Jacket round. The green tip we are seeing on the bullet is a thin layer of paint to indicate that this bullet is an M855 steel core bullet. Zooming in on one of the pictures should show some of the imperfections of this paint. This green coating should not wear off into your barrel or cause any build up outside of normal use of 5.56x45 ammunition. Since this steel core is on the inside tip of the bullet, the barrel will only be exposed to the copper jacket.

Posted On: 4/11/13 By: Phil

A: The steel core found in these bullets are towards the front tip of the bullet. However, these cores are covered in the standard copper jacket found on almost every full metal jacket cartridge on the market. This core will not cause any damage or premature wear on your rifle. The steel core does a better job of penetrating its target, including other metals. This could be considered both a pro and a con. If you are plinking at throw-away targets, this feature may be considered a pro. If you are shooting at metals you wish to reuse in the future, you may want to avoid using steel core ammo. This is one reason they are prohibited in some indoor ranges. Overall this is an excellent choice for outdoor target shooting into a dirt bank.
