No AR-15 owner has ever regretted owning a whole case of 5.56x45 M855 ammunition. Although magnetic, it’s still a swell solution for all-day plinking and target shooting. M855 also offers something extra: the penetrator core.

See the bullet’s bright green tip? That’s just paint, but beneath the gilding metal jacket sits a solid steel cone. This makes the M855 bullet’s tip a whole lot harder than a traditional FMJ projectile, thus enhancing its ability to penetrate sheet metal and other obstructions. A bullet that can reliably pierce a 1/8” thick piece of steel up to 2,000 feet has obvious tactical applications, and that it may split in half inside soft tissue makes its terminal effect even more suitable for personal protection.

A couple of caveats to keep in mind with M855 ammunition. First, the steel in the bullet makes it magnetic, and not all indoor ranges like that. Second, a heavier 62 grain bullet gives the best accuracy out of a 1:9 or 1:8 twist barrel, but for close to medium range you’ll do just fine with a 1:7.

Igman is located in Bosnia and Herzegovina – that’s one single country, just to the east of Italy across the Mediterranean. Igman only loads new brass cases and non-corrosive Boxer primers to make reliable, clean-burning and reloadable ammunition.
