Details

This “green tip” ammo is made to NATO’s M855 standard. Each 62-grain bullet has a steel core penetrator and a full metal jacket for higher penetration. It has a strong reputation among shooters for its accuracy, cleanliness, and consistency.

These rounds come bulk packed in 20 round boxes. The rounds are Boxer-primed with reloadable brass cases. Muzzle velocity clocks in around 2,920 fps, with a muzzle energy of 1,174 foot-pounds.

Note: This is steel-core ammunition and should not be used on steel targets. It is also 5.56 NATO ammo, so shooters with firearms chambered in .223 Remington should ensure that their weapon is designed to fire higher-pressure 5.56x45 ammo before attempting to use these rounds.

PMC X-TAC ammo is made by the Poongsan Corporation, a manufacturer of ammo for the South Korean military. A longtime producer of NATO-spec ammunition, Poongsan possesses decades of experience in manufacturing ammo. The company makes its own ammo components in order to have maximum quality control throughout the production process. Any ammunition that fails tight tolerances for powder loads is rejected, ensuring that only good rounds reach the end user.

A: Thanks for reaching out Robert! An M855 bullet contains a steel tip in its core. Many indoor ranges ban magnetic bullets because they present a higher chance of ricochet, may damage range equipment, and may create sparks as well. Many indoor ranges don't ban bullets that contain steel, too, so they're not altogether unacceptable for indoor use. Some ranges just opt for that added degree of safety. In short, nonmagnetic bullets are indeed safer for indoor range use, but not so much that they're universally required by all indoor ranges.

A: Thanks for reaching out Dustin! Please forgive us. PMC's own data on their website say this round's muzzle velocity is 3,100 fps (pmcammo.com/product/x-tac-5-56k/), but that doesn't appear to match this ammo's packaging. I've updated the product page to reflect the packaging and not what is stated on PMC's website.

A: Yes sir, absolutely. A 223 Wylde chamber is designed to work just as well with 5.56 as it does 223.
