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 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.
