Winchester Ammunition is one of the most trusted American ammo brands. This 5.56 NATO ammo comes in a 1000 round case, and is top-of-the-line AR-15 ammo for firearms chambered for 5.56 NATO pressure.Each cartridge is brass-cased with a Boxer primer and weighs the standard 62 grain-weight.

The SS109 cartridge was chosen by NATO as the second standardized rifle cartridge after the 7.62x51mm. The SS109 was named M855 by the US military and is also called 5.56x45mm NATO. Recognized by its green-tip, the M855 is known as Penetrator ammo as the bullet was designed to meet the U.S Continental Army Command's parameters for small-calibre, high velocity rifle ammunition which included penetration of a .135 inch steel plate at 500 yards. It is not, however, considered armour piercing. The armour piercing variant of 5.56 mm is the M995 which has a tungsten core and is painted with a black tip.

A: Yes sir! This ammo's product code is Q3269. That is the third code listed under 5.56mm on this web page: https://www.winchester.com/Rebates/2023-Winchester-Target-Rifle-Ammunition-Rebate

A: No sir. Green tip is the furthest we go.

A: Thanks for asking, Brooks! An M855 projectile doesn't have a steel core per se. What it has is a seven grain steel tip. Such a bullet's tip is painted green for easy identification.

A: Hello Chelly, Green tip ammunition is not considered to be armor piercing. Green tip ammunition is listed as being a steel penetrator as it does have a steel core. This is not the same as Black tip ammunition which is true armor piercing.
