This is true M193 spec ammo, which the U.S. Army issues for field use with the M16A1 rifle. (Winchester just made it specifically for the civilian market.) It’s just the ticket for the AR-15 as well, and it runs real smooth courtesy of its uniform 55 grain FMJ bullets. This round’s bullet may fragment apart once it hits soft tissue, but it isn’t designed for actual terminal expansion. The bullet’s concentric jacket provides enough in-flight stability to keep its nose pointed downrange throughout its flight, and its cannelure helps avoid setback in the magazine.
These cartridges have brand new brass cases. Granted, they look like they’ve been reloaded, but the dark coloration is actually the result of the factory heat-treatment which made their brass longer-lasting. These nonmagnetic rounds are also non-corrosive, so you can take them to indoor ranges and clean your rifle normally afterward.
