This cartridge doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but that’s good for when you just want to enjoy a little plinking. The bullet is an ordinary 55 grain full metal jacket, which is all the military’s M193 specification really calls for. The hard gilding metal jacket prevents any kind of terminal expansion, but it will fragment inside of soft tissue following close-range impact. The core is solid lead, so there’s nothing magnetic about this bullet. It’s also equipped with a boat tail, which essentially makes the bullet more aerodynamic so it can fly flatter and benefit from higher resistance to wind deflection.
Armscor loads this ammo at their headquarters in the Philippines with brass cases and non-corrosive Boxer primers – the hallmark of reloadable cartridges. It should cycle smoothly through any semi-automatic rifle, AR-15 or otherwise!
