The M855 bullet functions identically to an FMJ inside of your rifle. Its gilding metal jacket promotes smooth feeding and prevents rapid barrel leading, but its green tip proves it’s packing a little something extra: seven grains of hard steel. When the M855 bullet hits a 1/8” thick sheet of steel at ranges up to 2,000 feet, it does a far better job piercing it than a traditional FMJ ever could. This bullet is also effective for self-defense even when sheet metal doesn’t enter into the equation, often fragmenting at the cannelure around its center to track multiple wound channels during high velocity penetration.
Many shooters are already familiar with Wolf’s Russian-made steel cased ammo. Their Gold label, on the other hand, features new production brass cases! You can see around each case’s neck where it has been heat-treated. That discoloration is cosmetic, but more importantly indicates the case is supple enough to seal the chamber throughout ignition as well as reloadable. This ammo is modern and non-corrosive, so rust doesn’t enter into the equation either.
