Loaded to NATO’s M855 specifications, this “green tip” ammunition uses 62-grain steel-cored full metal jacket bullets for high penetration. The heavier bullets result in a muzzle velocity of about 2,920 fps, slightly lower than M193 ball. This case holds 1,000 cartridges in 20-round boxes.
All of this ammunition uses Boxer-primers with reloadable brass cases. It is 5.56×45 NATO ammo, so make sure that your firearm isn’t only chambered for 223 Rem before firing it.
Due to its steel core, this ammunition should not be used on reactive steel targets for safety reasons.
