This cartridge features a 62 grain penetrator bullet, which is most accurate when fired from a 1:9 or 1:8 twist barrel. On its exterior it is functionally identical to an FMJ, so any semi-auto should have no difficulty feeding it. Its core, however, is made of two different metals: lead in the rear for added mass, and steel in the front for greater strength. The steel tip facilitates reliable penetration through a great range of barriers. Sheet metal itself presents little obstacle for an M855 bullet at ranges up to 650 yards. And once this bullet plunges into soft tissue, there is a significant chance its bimetal core will split in half to yield multiple wound channels.
Igman is based in the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and they are not like Russian manufacturers in that their cases contain no steel. This is new production brass, and Boxer primed too – that makes this case of ammo a sound investment in your future reloading plans!
