As a result, these TRU (Tactical Rifle - Urban) cartridges utilize a 64 grain soft point (SP) projectile with a minimally exposed tip and a jacket-locking base cannelure; these build choices produce wide expansion upon impact with high weight retention and deep penetration. All of these features contribute to a massive wound cavity and threat-dropping energy transfer with reduced risk for a lethal exiting round. The 64 grain weight is well-supported by proven zeroes and is compatible with the most common barrel twist-rates.
Other components used in this load include a clean-igniting Boxer primer, a reloadable brass casing, and a measurement of powder that is optimized for reliable cycling in the AR-15, SCAR, Mini-14, G36, and other modern semi-automatic 5.56mm rifles. The lower pressure charge also makes this round safe to fire in many .223 chambered bolt-action and pump-action rifles that certain areas are restricted to using.
Each of these rounds undergoes the finishing and inspection expected of premium grade "social" ammo including case annealing for improved strength, flash suppressant to preserve a shooter's vision, crimped primers to prevent game-stopping malfunctions, and frequent lot testing for consistent accuracy and overall quality.
