This round’s 62 grain bullet looks just like any other FMJ on the outside, but with one exception: Its tip is painted green. That’s the sign that its lead core contains a seven-grain steel penetrator tip, which enables the bullet to reliably pierce sheet metal and other durable barriers at close-to-medium range.
This is magnetic ammo! Many ranges won’t let you bring it on their premises, as a bullet which contains steel poses a higher risk of damaging range equipment. The heavier 62 grain bullet is most accurate when fired from a 1:9” or 1:8” twist barrel, but if your AR-15’s barrel has a 1:7” twist then you’ll still enjoy firing this ammo.
This American-made ammo is loaded with new production brass cases. You can see where they were heat-treated at the factory, because Winchester didn’t spend time polishing the cases afterward. This Boxer-primed ammo is great for handloading too!
