"Green Tip Penetrator" is probably not a phrase you should bandy about lightly. In a room full of west coast legislators, it could get you a new gun law on the books. In a range session it could cost you half your case lot if you brought enough shooting buddies. In a CQB scenario it might cause the bad guy to just turn around and give up. It’s a phrase that has become synonymous with the idea that you brought a very potent round to the table in whatever situation you found yourself in while talking about it. People know what it can do, and the background story seems to get lost in the fray. But that’s the saddest part, because the background story is pretty great to listen to as well.
In the background, this is a brass cased cartridge with a clean burning powder and a potent delivery system for the heavy 62 grain weight projectile. It is Boxer primed and has an annealed case throat which makes it very desirable for reloading purposes. It is dead accurate out of the right barrel twists, and very close to dead accurate even out of the wrong barrel twists. It is ridiculously fun to shoot and has great impact performance for reactive targets and on old decaying jalopy vehicles in the middle of nowhere. It may even have an unhealthy relationship with the occasional bottle of Tannerite. All in all, it is just one of the best rounds you can buy for the 5.56x45, so GET SOME!
