This ammo is optimal for any AR-15 firearm, not to mention all the other 5.56x45 rifles you’ll find at American shooting ranges. It’s loaded with a thoroughly standardized 55 grain full metal jacket boat tail projectile. The bullet’s rigid copper exterior prevents terminal expansion (although terminal fragmentation is quite likely at close range), and its tapered base helps the bullet retain greater velocity at long range. Its G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.248 will keep this bullet supersonic and accurate beyond 700 yards!
PPU doesn’t load any magnetic components. As such this round’s steel-free bullet is seated in a new production brass case, which alongside its non-corrosive Boxer primer makes it a sound pick for handloading.
