Australia’s F1 cartridge is completely analogous to America’s own M855 ammo. That means this round’s bullet contains a steel penetrator core, even though the tip of its FMJ is not painted green. Be careful not to take this ammo where magnetic bullets are banned! But do enjoy it for regular target shooting with any AR-15 rifle.
An F1 bullet’s strong tip helps it pierce sheet metal and other tough barriers, and it may even break in half as it penetrates soft tissue. At 62 grains this bullet will offer the best accuracy out of a 1:9 or 1:8 twist barrel, although a 1:7 twist will serve just fine.
Although foreign, this ammo still has non-corrosive Boxer primers for cleaner shooting and reloadability’s sake. These rounds’ brass cases are also brand new – the discoloration you see is merely the byproduct of the annealing process which makes them more durable.
These 900 rounds are packaged in a steel ammo can, so they’re great for stocking up. Just be sure that this isn’t like the other Australian Defense Industries F1 ammo we’ve offered in the past – these rounds are packed loose, not in plastic sleeves!
