This round has a 62 grain bullet, which is slightly heavier than usual and accordingly able to retain greater momentum downrange. Its boat tail also helps the bullet resist wind deflection and strike its target with more energy, and its FMJ possesses all the concentricity which in-flight stability demands.
But why is this bullet’s tip painted green? That’s the trademark of an M855 round, and it shows that its bullet contains a seven grain steel tip. Hard steel does a much better job of penetrating barriers as substantial as sheet metal, so while this magnetic ammo may not be welcome at all indoor ranges it’s good to have on hand for home defense.
Many people assume this ammo’s brass cases have already been fired before, but the grayness you see in the photo is simply the result of the factory annealing process which helps brass keep supple. This non-corrosive ammo won’t turn your rifle’s bore into rust, and its low residue propellant won’t quickly deplete its accuracy.
