This round’s full metal jacket bullet weighs a little heavier at 62 grains. A 1:8” or 1:9” barrel twist will provide the best long-range accuracy, but don’t sweat it if you’ve got a 1:7”. The FMJ’s jacket has a cannelure to prevent bullet setback, and its tip is painted green to indicate that this is an M855 round. The front half of the M855 bullet’s core is made of solid steel. This hardens the bullet to increase its chance of fully penetrating sheet metal, which is helpful from a military standpoint. At the range, it only means that M855 ammo will damage steel plate targets.
