This cartridge is loaded with a 55 grain full metal jacket boat tail bullet. Although we acknowledge the military’s effective use of the FMJBT, we must emphasize that there are far better choices for home defense. An FMJBT just can’t provide the terminal expansion which mitigates the risk of over-penetration. But it can feed smoothly, and thanks to its boat tail it can retain more downrange velocity while simultaneously resisting wind deflection. No steel in this bullet – it cannot attract a magnet.
