Each cartridge is crowned with an 85 grain projectile which possesses an open tip and a boat tail rear for ultimate drag resistance that contributes to tighter groups on target. 85 grains is quite massive for the 5.56x45mm caliber and should only be used with barrels of 1:8 or faster twist rate; this heavy profile gives the bullet a longer body for increased surface area to contact rifling and generate greater stability. That makes these rounds suitable for long range tack-driving as well as competitive use.
