This round’s 62 grain full metal jacket bullet will attract a magnet – but not because it has a cheap bi-metal jacket. Just beneath the FMJ’s painted tip sits seven grains of pure steel, which gives the bullet the fortitude it needs to penetrate sheet metal. M855 (also known as SS109 outside of the USA) ammunition offers an obvious advantage to warfighters, but civilians also love it for its great accuracy. The slightlier heftier bullet retains more momentum and accordingly excels at resisting wind deflection.
Armscor may have loaded this ammo with magnetic bullets, but its noncorrosive Boxer-primed cases are all brass and all reloadable. This ammo’s cases are slightly tinged around their necks and mouths. They were not previously fired and reloaded. All 5.56 brass cases would have the same discoloration, but Armscor simply doesn’t enhance their military grade brass’s cosmetics by polishing it at the factory.
