This is IMI’s own version of the U.S. Armed Forces’ M193 cartridge, which is optimized for smooth functionality and consistent accuracy with the M16A1 rifle. Whichever rifle you have in mind, it’s going to have an easy time feeding these rounds’ jacketed 55 grain projectiles, which would fracture apart into multiple pieces of shrapnel if they strike a threat standing at close-to-medium range. Importantly, IMI’s FMJ projectiles do not have any steel and cannot attract a magnet.
IMI’s manufacturing standards are on par with America’s own. That makes these new production rounds non-corrosive, Boxer-primed, and loaded with never before fired brass cases. You’ll notice that the cases are gray around their necks, because military cases are rarely polished after they have heat-treated for greater toughness at the factory. It does not impact functionality at all. This military ammo also comes packaged in plain brown cardboard boxes, not colorful ones that would look nice on store shelves.
