This cartridge sports an M193 projectile, which is the standard for field use with the M16A1 rifle. The 55 grain bullet has a gilded metal jacket around its lead alloy core, which gives it great penetrative abilities in conjunction with this cartridge’s 3,240 fps muzzle velocity. The bullet’s jacket also preserves your rifle’s bore against the kind of lead fouling that would have impacted your accuracy, making this round a great choice for long sessions at the range.
