If you see this round’s 62 grain bullet and wonder whether it contains steel, that’s because you’re smart. You know the 5.56 M855 load’s 62gr bullet attracts a magnet, and you don’t want to get stuck with ammo you can’t fire at your favorite range. Well, you can set your doubts aside. This round’s full metal jacket boat tail projectile is made of simple lead and copper alloy that can’t attract a magnet.
The 62gr FMJBT does offer comparable ballistic performance to the Armed Forces’ M855 load, however. Its 3,020 fps muzzle velocity and 0.307 G1 ballistic coefficient mean that the bullet is better for longer-distance shooting thanks to its greater downrange momentum and resistance to wind deflection. But if you’re just walloping targets at close range, you’ll still love the FMJBT’s smooth feeding and consistent accuracy.
This high-volume target ammo features reloadable brass cases, as well as noncorrosive Boxer primers that are sealed for added security against humidity in storage. Just one warning: One box is not enough!
